117: Managing Concurrency in Postgres with Bruce Momjian

Following on from our previous look at the Query planner - we are joined again by Bruce Momjian to extend this exploration into looking how Postgres manages concurrency. We start off by discussing some of the challenges and workarounds used in the past to handle concurrent access, particularly in the eyes of a database administrator. We then highlight the concept of MVCC, how it works from a high-level, how Postgres implements it and the clean-up considerations that are present. Finally, we mention how Postgres stores data in page-form, how projects such as pg_compact work to regain space and what the fill-factor is.

Episode 87: Asking Questions Down Under

Down Under challenge #752

This time out we asked our listeners to submit some questions because we are tired of winning so much and wanted to let others get in on it. Along the way Ed talked about a recent computer-related purchase he made on eBay while Chris talked about one the earliest science fiction short stories he can remember while feeling incredibly old at the same time.

Don’t worry, Chris' ego let him know he was not old and is still awesome.

Do these things!

116: Programming Like Functions Matter with Jimmy Burrell and Scott Wlaschin

In this weeks episode we are joined by Jimmy Burrell and Scott Wlaschin to discuss all things functional. We start off the show highlighting how Scott got into programming, the reasons why he is a big fan of Smalltalk, what he means by ‘Enterprise OO’ and being a Humanistic programmer. From here we discuss how he got into FP, how the paradigm came to being, what FP is to Scott and why you should consider it. Finally, we mention the differences between types in FP over langauges such as C, the railway track metaphor he uses to help explain FP concepts and architectural patterns that are more or less suited to FP.
