PostgreSQL Person of the Week

Jonah H. Harris

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Jonah H. Harris: Hello! I’m Jonah, the Founder of NEXTGRES. I’ve been a database enthusiast, user, administrator, and developer for many (many) years. Most people who know me know I approach database selection pragmatically, focusing on the needs of the customer, company, or application rather than ideology. That said, Postgres has (obviously) emerged as my preferred choice over time.

Artur Zakirov

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Artur Zakirov: I currently reside in Berlin, Germany, and work at Adjust. I grew up in a village in Bashkortostan, Russia. It is located in a green area far from the hustle of big cities. During my early years I didn’t think about living in big cities. Today it’s hard to imagine myself away from a vibrant city. I moved to Berlin around three years ago. And I lived in Tokyo, Japan, around one year before moving to Berlin.

Afsane Anand

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Afsane Anand: I was born in Trier, Germany to a German Mother and an Iranian Father. The family moved to Iran when I was 7; I returned to Germany when I turned 18 to continue my education and get a German Abitur. My studies then took me to India for a 6 months internship where I met my future husband and decided I don’t want an office job. So I packed up and moved to Melbourne, Australia where I did my Hospitality Degree. After working at Hotel Front Desks in Australia, Germany and UK for 12 years I decided an office job wouldn’t be too bad and I started as a Sales Development Representative a few months before COVID hit. Definitely a good decision. Since I have combined the skills and work as Customer Success Manager.
