PGOpen '17 - Concurrency Deep-Dive

Unlike many traditional RBDMS, PostgreSQL was architected with concurrency at top of mind. However, many developers (including the speaker once upon a time) don't understand all its magic under the hood. In this talk, we'll explore how Postgres deals with concurrency (MVCC, locks, transactions, etc.), why it matters, and how to make the best of it (with production stories!).
