Colin CharlesJoin Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

The week after Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 tends to be much quieter, aided by the fact that I took a few days away during Labor Day. The next thing to look out for is Percona Live Europe 2018, which at this stage is really a note to let you save the dates: November 5-7 2018, at the Radisson Blu, in Frankfurt. There is no call for papers yet, there is no committee, and it is not listed yet at the Percona Live Conferences page. Hang in there! We’ll open the call for papers soon!

Now that Percona is in the PostgreSQL space, it seems prudent that there will also be more PostgreSQL content here. A great resource naturally is Planet PostgreSQL. There also seems to be another resource on The internals of PostgreSQL, and as books go, Mastering PostgreSQL in Application Development sure looks very interesting. Do you have recommended resources?
