Postgres Performance Demystified Webinar

Learn A Simple Framework To Achieve 1,000 Fold Improvements.

Join this FREE webinar to learn a simple framework you can apply to your Postgres database to unlock performance improvements. This is the framework I have used to drop database CPU utilization from 80% to 20% or improve the performance of certain statements over 1,000 fold.

Who is this webinar for?

Senior Developers

If you have put off learning how to best leverage the Postgres database you use everyday or want to take your knowledge to the next level, this webinar could be a great way to form your own framework or perspective for thinking about database performance.

Junior Developers

Don't be intimidated or even afraid of your database. I cover some simple concepts you can apply to have a greater understanding of how to best use it as well as some trade-offs you will typically encounter. This could also give you a "leg-up" on other developers who choose not to study this topic.

Database Administrator (Even Accidental?)

While we won't be diving into in-depth details of Postgres in this specific webinar, you will be getting the framework, philosophy and concepts I use when engaging with clients. You can apply this "took-kit" to your own databases.

If any of these sound like you, you are in the right place!

Who am I?

Hi! I am Creston Jamison. I got started using Microsoft SQL Server in the late 1990's, switched to Oracle in the early 2000's and have been using PostgreSQL since about 2008 (over 15 years!). About 8 years or so ago I started doing PostgreSQL consulting. I started "Scaling Postgres" (my weekly show on scaling Postgres) in 2018. I just hit a huge milestone by recording my 300th episode!

I currently help clients optimize the performance of their PostgreSQL databases. I have helped clients find 10,000X performance wins and helped manage their multi-terabyte databases with trillions of rows.

    Previous Ansible Course: “I’ve read many different blog posts and tutorials on Rails deployment and server config, and your series was what finally helped me construct a working solution and deploy my first non-Heroku app! Really appreciate your very clear, well explained instructions.”

    Previous Ansible Course: “The course is very well explained and all the commands are in the outline. In addition, it not only covers server setup, but also security (ssl) and a database backup strategy. At the end of the course, you have a server that is secure with a backup plan.”

Is this webinar live or pre-recorded?

The webinar will be LIVE. I will be presenting this information in real-time. There will be opportunities to ask questions as well.

What happens if I cannot make it live?

No worries, a recording will be sent out to everyone who registered some time after the live webinar.

Do I have to know anything about Postgres?

Actually, very little. It would be good to have some knowledge. But, a lot of what will be discusssed is how to think about database performance optimization in general. So, a lot of the topics covered could be applied to other database systems.

Is this free?


Is there a chance to ask questions during the webinar?

Yes, there will be opportunities to ask questions during the webinar.
