pg_chameleon is a lightweight replication system written in python. The tool can connect to the MySQL replication protocol and replicate the data changes in PostgreSQL.

Whether the user needs to set up a permanent replica between MySQL and PostgreSQL or perform an engine migration, pg_chameleon is the perfect tool for the job.

The talk will cover the history the current implementation and the future releases.

The audience will learn how to set up a replica from MySQL to PostgreSQL in a few easy steps. There will be also a coverage on the lessons learned during the tool's development cycle and a small demo.
