Peter Geoghegan, one of the major developers of the new "JSONB" binary, indexable JSON type for PostgreSQL 9.4, will be in town and will guide SFPUG members in a "deep dive" into the new technology, including:
• Both the new JSONB type and the old JSON type input and output JSON, so what's the difference?
• What new features does it offer?
• How is the new data type structured, and how does it work?
• How do you index JSONB?
• What things remain unimplemented?
Before the main event, we will have a Lightning Talk by Eric Ongerth: Running PostgreSQL in a Docker Container
Food and Drink, as well as Peter's travel, are sponsored by Heroku. It is being hosted by SwitchFly.
