Room: Salon 15-16
Level: Beginner

Foreign data wrappers (FDW) are a nifty feature in Postgres that allows using the database as an interface to query other non-Postgres data sources. In this beginner-friendly talk, I will provide an introduction to the concept of FDW and what they look like under the hood, show some interesting examples of applications for FDW, and walk the audience through the creation of a simple FDW. The main takeaway for the audience is an understanding of what FDW can be used for and - hopefully - some motivation to try them out for their own use cases.
