PostgreSQL 11, once released will have builtin just in time (JIT) compilation support. In this talk I'll first explain what just in time compilation is, how it can accelerate execution of queries. With that foundation we'll try to understand which types of queries are going to benefit from JIT compilation in PostgreSQL 11. Lastly we'll explore what's missing in v11 / which features have been added to the development branch / what's needed and possible.
