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).

John Naylor

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with John Naylor: I was born in Oklahoma, USA, but have been nomadic since 2017. During that time I’ve mostly lived in Southeast Asia, but in 2020-21 I lived in Barbados and now the Dominican Republic. The “thing that need not be named” slowed me down but didn’t stop me. I haven’t commuted to an office since 2011, and I’ve always had a fascination for foreign cultures, so it was natural that I’d end up doing this.
