PgEast Talk

I’m giving a talk at the PgEast
conference next week in NYC titled Migrating
from MySQL to
PostgreSQL
.

This talk will cover how Braintree migrated our credit card payment
gateway, a Ruby on Rails application with millions of rows of data, from
MySQL to PostgreSQL. The talk will be in three main parts:

  1. Why we decided to switch and the benefits of PostgreSQL over MySQL
  2. The tools and process we used to cut over with only a couple of
    minutes of downtime
  3. The aftermath of the switch, rewriting parts of our code, and
    optimizing our application for PostgreSQL
