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.

Bryn Llewellyn

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Bryn Llewellyn: I came to PostgreSQL only relatively recently, in the spring of 2019, when I left my job in the PL/SQL Team at Oracle HQ to join Yugabyte Inc. This is an exciting Silicon Valley startup, one of whose founders had been a close colleague of mine in the PL/SQL team. My first blog post in my new job, Why I Moved from Oracle to YugaByte, explains how I was easily persuaded to make this change after close to thirty years with Oracle.

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Dave Cramer: I’m a Canadian currently hiding from winter in a warm southern state. As for hobbies: I started taking my car to the race track to see how well I understood physics. Turns out the theory and application are more interesting when you are the object in motion. I’ve been involved in PostgreSQL since around 2000. Through reading and answering many emails on the JDBC list I found myself contributing code to it and eventually maintaining it. I consider myself to be very fortunate to be able to make a living from PostgreSQL.

Lætitia Avrot

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Lætitia Avrot: I’m Lætitia from France, near Lyon. If you can’t say my name because it’s too difficult, it’s ok. You may use ‘Joy’ if it’s easier for you. I like savate boxing, running and learning. I love listening to both rock and classical music, as long as it sounds ‘positive’.
