Today I gave a talk on the Heroku Postgres architecture at Burlington Ruby Conf.
Here are the slides: https://speakerdeck.com/u/hgimenez/p/heroku-postgres
It was fun!

Preparing my talk for http://burlingtonruby.com/ right now. I'll probably extend this talk for http://bogotaconf.co as well. Really looking forward to sharing this material.
Decided to not use any HTML slide software like I have in the past. I've used http://gistdeck.herokuapp.com, https://github.com/schacon/showoff and http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/ in the past, and they've served their purpose.
But every single time I end up wanting more. I want my slides to be stunning. I don't want to settle for less.
Analytics/page views are a huge advantage of using the web to deliver decks. With something like speakerdeck though, you get stats. Luckily, I even get a gorgeous keynote template from heroku, so that's half the battle.

Gave a talk on Saturday at Boston.io on Postgres and SQL; linked is a recap and the slides.
Although not on the slides, I did also talk briefly about using the psql command line interface to postgres. Using \? to find commands and their explanations is the most fundamental thing you should know. I also showcased the use of \x for expanded mode which is useful for when your queries return datasets that are too wide to fit in one line. But the most *thank-you*s I got from showing \e, which pops open $EDITOR to edit a query and is run when you write and close it. Pure awesome.

Making database choices
For data folks: via Hacker News comes this well-written reminder that you don't always need to go looking for a fancypants NoSQL store if you're already using PostgreSQL. It can handle storing key/value pairs, JSON and has native XML support.
Check out the full article for code samples. Pretty neat. +Harold Giménez closes out his post with these great points outlining the advantages of sticking with PostreSQL for document storage:
* You don’t need to maintain a new database in your infrastructure. Any service that is required to run your app adds complexity that is not always justified.
* XML data backups continue to occur as part of your main database backups.
* The XML data can be used to reference and JOIN other data in your data model.

Dizzying but invisible depth
You just went to the Google home page.
Simple, isn't it?
What just actually happened?
Well, when you know a bit of about how browsers work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play HTTP, HTML, CSS, ECMAscript, and more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.
You just connected your computer to www.google.com.

Changelogs are for when you don't have the source to the software. Is this, can this be true?
If you're source control history is readable, how does that change your opinion? If it is impecable, how about now?
What about a changelog that is not maintained and becomes outdated, but impecable source control history and solid tests? Is a changelog just an artifact, or a requirement for successful software?

Manure... An interesting fact
Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common.It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas of course. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM! Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening. After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction 'Stow high in transit' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high... more »
