PostgreSQL Person of the Week

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’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.
