Álvaro Herrera

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Álvaro Herrera: I am a 1976-vintage Chilean tinkerer who grew up disassembling all manner of things and trying to figure out how to put them back again; my father owned a Z80 computer when I was a kid, and I was amazed at some of the things it did, and it led me into developing an interest in doing things with computers. I started my journey with Linux in 1997 and was amazed at the plethora of things I could do with it – that’s where I really learned to program (in Perl).

Jimmy Angelakos

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Jimmy Angelakos: I grew up in Athens, Greece, then went to Scotland to study at the University of Aberdeen. After 15 years of working in the industry with Open Source tools, I found myself working with my favourite database, as Senior PostgreSQL Architect at 2ndQuadrant in Edinburgh. Music is a big part of my life, I love listening to diverse genres, a long time ago I played in a rock band, and in the more recent past I presented a music-oriented radio show.
