Paul Ramsey

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Paul Ramsey: I’m a middle-aged guy from the blessed west coast of Canada, where the sky and the mountains meet the sea.

I grew up in the interior of British Columbia, but have lived in Victoria, on Vancouver Island, for most of my adult life.
