PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Valeria Kaplan: I am originally from what is now known as Kazakhstan and what was then USSR, but I have moved around the world quite a bit and, at the moment, live in the UK. My background is in communications and marketing and I worked in the pharma industry and academia before joining Data Egret. Prior to that I only had a very remote idea about databases, the nearest that I came to working with them was my experience with FileMaker. Mind you, this experience proved to be quite handy in understanding the processes and challenges surrounding database maintenance.
PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Elein Mustain: I was born in El Paso, Texas, USA. My family is mostly from California and Texas. I’ve lived most of my life in the San Francisco East Bay Area primarily in Oakland, California. A notable exception was three years in Maracaibo, Venezuela when I was starting elementary school. This was followed by studying Spanish from then into college. Another interesting locale was Albany, California in 1968/9 while my father went back to school at UC Berkeley.
