Who are you?

I’m The Doctor! Just kidding. I’m only fond of databases. and PostgreSQL in particular.

Why did you created another blog on PostgreSQL?

I did because I see plenty of developers blog, but nothing strictly related with the database administration.

I think PostgreSQL is a first class product with powerful features but with unclear information about the caveats, the limitations and all the practical issues a DBA can face.

To be clear, the on line documentation on the official website is absolutely clear and well written. During my experience as Oracle DBA, i had only one single point of KB where to search for informations, the old beloved Metalink. I really miss something like this in PostgreSQL and maybe, if I have time, I will change this blog in a central repository for DBA. For now I’m trying to write down my knowledge to avoid misunderstanding.

What’s your background?

I’ve long working experience on Oracle and PostgreSQL.

Are you a developer?

No, despite the fact I’m absolutely brilliant as developer, I’d rather prefer to die. I like to build things to make my life easier but definitely I don’t want to develop to live.

What’s your nationality?

I’m Neapolitan. I didn’t studied English so please forgive for my bad grammar.

What’s your Doctor?

The Fourth Doctor.

What’s your preferred Doctor’s quote?

There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes.

Are you religious?

No, I’m an ateist.
