In 2023, after the pandemic, Fundación PostgreSQL is organizing the second edition of Postgres Ibiza with the same core tenets, website and goals. Yet this time the Core Team is trying to shut it down, despite admitting that it complies as a Postgr ..read more

Re: Update on the Trademark Actions This blog post is a reply to this statement, as published by the PostgreSQL Association of Canada (PGAC). No actions against the Community: actions FOR the Community PGAC mentions in its public statement that “Fundación PostgreSQL” has taken actions against the PostgreSQL Community. This is an unsubstantiated claim, no actions have been taken against the Community. As a leading open-source Community, there should be drastic transparency in communications and Core should document publicly the damage they claim has been done and all hostile actions that Fundac ..read more

Respecting the majority, questioning the status quo as a minority Yesterday, the PostgreSQL Core Team launched an unprecedented attack on Fundación PostgreSQL as a whole and individually against Alvaro Hernandez. Fundación PostgreSQL responded promptly. This was an attack against a Postgres Community Non-Profit and a Community member at the individual level. It was unprecedented, as no similar attack has happened in the past. But more concerning, it was unnecessary and disproportionate: Unnecessary: Core had previously decided that they didn’t want to have any conversation and would substant ..read more

Postgres Core Team launches unprecedented attack against the Postgres Community Being distributed is the key to the project’s resilience One of the often cited advantages of the PostgreSQL project is its resiliency. Especially in the presence of rogue actors: being a distributed Community, it is hard to target any individual, group or entity and affect/disrupt the whole Community. Similarly, it is not possible to “buy PostgreSQL”, irrespective of how much money you have, since there’s no single entity, group or company that constitutes the whole project and thus could be acquired.

Babelfish: the Elephant in the Room?

On December 1st, 2020, Amazon AWS announced Babelfish. Babelfish “adds an endpoint to PostgreSQL that understands the SQL Server wire protocol Tabular Data Stream (TDS), as well as commonly used T-SQL commands used by SQL Server. Support for T-SQL includes elements such as the SQL dialect, cursors, catalog views, data types, triggers, stored procedures, and functions”. Wow. SQL Server wire and application compatibility for PostgreSQL! What this means is that Babelfish will be able to “impersonate” a SQL Server database. Applications may be able to run unchanged, believing that they are connect ..read more

At Fundación PostgreSQL we have been watching carefully the events, and trying to keep Postgres Ibiza happening, as long as we could ensure a perfectly safe and healthy condition for organizing it. Even though there is a ray of light and we think a period like September may be safe to organize it, unfortunately, organizing a conference requires quality time. The same is needed for speakers ..read more
