PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Afsane Anand: I was born in Trier, Germany to a German Mother and an Iranian Father. The family moved to Iran when I was 7; I returned to Germany when I turned 18 to continue my education and get a German Abitur. My studies then took me to India for a 6 months internship where I met my future husband and decided I don’t want an office job. So I packed up and moved to Melbourne, Australia where I did my Hospitality Degree. After working at Hotel Front Desks in Australia, Germany and UK for 12 years I decided an office job wouldn’t be too bad and I started as a Sales Development Representative a few months before COVID hit. Definitely a good decision. Since I have combined the skills and work as Customer Success Manager.
PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Elizabeth Garrett Christensen: I’m not your average Postgres person of the week - I’m a non-developer as well as a Postgres fan and marketing/sales/customer facing person. I am part of a Postgres co-working couple and my husband David Christensen and I both work for Crunchy Data from our home in Lawrence, Kansas.
PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Andrey Borodin: I’m from Russia. I was born in a village called Sarana and eventually moved to the nearby city Ekaterinburg in the Ural region. Technically it’s a border of Europe and Asia, close to the median between Beijing and Berlin.
