Tobias Bussmann

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Tobias Bussmann: Grown up in a midsized wine-town in Germany, I started working in (Windows) System Administration during school. In doing so, I had come in touch with Programming and Databases. Still at University, I started my own business in data driven marketing and ran it for almost ten years. Today, another ten years later, I’m living in Bern, Switzerland, working for the Swiss Academy of Sciences. Over the time, I became deeply involved in the PostgreSQL community. Further, I’m supporting privacy, open-source, open-data and civil society concerns as I’m overall a political person.
