PostgreSQL Person of the Week

Nikolay Samokhvalov

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Nikolay Samokhvalov: I’m from Russia, a small place in the Penza region. Born in 1981 and moved to the Moscow area in 1998 – to study Mathematics and Physics in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, quite famous in Russia and outside it. I chose Computer Science and, particularly, Databases specialization almost in the beginning – and stick to it, without regrets. Databases are at heart of almost any computer system!
