PostgreSQL Person of the Week

Anastasia Lubennikova

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Anastasia Lubennikova: Hi, I am Anastasia, and I live in Moscow, Russia. I am a core developer working at Postgres Professional and all my career so far was devoted to the PostgreSQL project. In my spare time I like reading science fiction, jogging on the embankments of the Moscow river and practicing yoga. Sometimes I sign up to do something that excites and scares me at the same time, and it usually turns out to be an amazing adventure.

Takayuki Tsunakawa

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Takayuki Tsunakawa: I’m a Japanese man who was born and lives in Japan, near Tokyo. I am visually impaired by nature, and I have only enough eyesight to feel the light now. But I had somewhat better vision when I was a child, and enjoyed playing video games with friends or alone. I can’t see the screen, so I use screen reader software that reads characters by synthesized voice.

Valeria Kaplan

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Valeria Kaplan: I am originally from what is now known as Kazakhstan and what was then USSR, but I have moved around the world quite a bit and, at the moment, live in the UK. My background is in communications and marketing and I worked in the pharma industry and academia before joining Data Egret. Prior to that I only had a very remote idea about databases, the nearest that I came to working with them was my experience with FileMaker. Mind you, this experience proved to be quite handy in understanding the processes and challenges surrounding database maintenance.

Hubert Lubaczewski

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Hubert Lubaczewski: I’m Hubert Lubaczewski, but I try to be better known as “depesz” (lower case). I’m 40+ years old with an undying fascination of tech. My personal hobbies (PostgreSQL + Perl + Linux) allowed me to translate to remote work years ago, and have since been loving living in a forest/wooded area. Geographically, I live close to Warsaw, the capital of Poland.

I was born in South of France (Avignon), studied in Paris (Orsay), worked in Paris, Brussels, Dakar, Libreville, Antananarivo, Sophia-Antipolis… and now settled in Switzerland for 10 years. I’ve been working in IT mostly with databases, in development (data architecture and modeling) and operations (installation, migration, High-Availability, tuning), and mostly as a consultant, also giving training. I’m passionate about all databases and enjoy it the most when I can improve both the database performance and the dev-ops communication.
