Karen Jex

PostgreSQL Person of the Week Interview with Karen Jex: I’m originally from the North West of England and I lived in various different parts of the country before settling in the South East, commuting to London from Essex for the first few years of my working life as a DBA. I’ve spent my whole career working with databases, and I’m currently a Solutions Architect with Crunchy Data. My husband and I moved to a small village in the French Alps 17+ years ago because of our love of mountain biking (Essex isn’t exactly well-known for its mountains). Our two kids, who are now teenagers, were both born here and say they feel more French than British. The eldest is also a mountain biker and is, of course, much better at it than we are!

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 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.
