Ilaria Battiston

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Ilaria Battiston: I am Ilaria, a 22-year-old Italian student currently studying Data Engineering at TU Munich. My main hobby, original enough, is open source advocacy: volunteering, contributing and learning. I am incredibly passionate about databases and algorithms, hoping to be able to work with them for life. I also love travelling and cooking :)

Sarah Conway Schnurr

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Sarah Conway Schnurr: I am from Southern California, where I’ve spent most of my free time hiking in the beautiful local deserts and pursuing many creative endeavors. Primarily, I am a software engineer & front-end website developer at Crunchy Data, a violin teacher & violin/viola performer, as well as a creator of zero-waste and all-natural homemade goods. I am also the co-parent of four beautiful cats, as well as the many adoptive fosters, strays, and friendly neighborhood cats that my husband and I visit on our daily walks.

Dave Cramer

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Dave Cramer: I’m a Canadian currently hiding from winter in a warm southern state. As for hobbies: I started taking my car to the race track to see how well I understood physics. Turns out the theory and application are more interesting when you are the object in motion. I’ve been involved in PostgreSQL since around 2000. Through reading and answering many emails on the JDBC list I found myself contributing code to it and eventually maintaining it. I consider myself to be very fortunate to be able to make a living from PostgreSQL.

Christophe Pettus

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Christophe Pettus: I’m a native Californian. My background is kind of random: I’ve been involved in electronic music, movies, writing comics, historical recreation, flying, and a lot of strange eCommerce companies. My first ‘real’ job was at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, so I can legitimately claim to be a rocket scientist. Through a long, complicated set of events involving my happening to own a professional video camera, I’ve ended up as CEO of PostgreSQL Experts, Inc., a consultancy supporting PostgreSQL.

Lætitia Avrot

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Lætitia Avrot: I’m Lætitia from France, near Lyon. If you can’t say my name because it’s too difficult, it’s ok. You may use ‘Joy’ if it’s easier for you. I like savate boxing, running and learning. I love listening to both rock and classical music, as long as it sounds ‘positive’.
