Training Contents
Pre-conference event is an introductory training course. It is aimed at novice DBAs (but also should be helpful for application developers to better understand what's going on at the database side).

Prerequisites for the course are basic understanding of SQL (nothing fancier than two-table joins) and some acquaintance with Linux (basic command like ls/cd/sudo).

The course covers basics of PostgreSQL architecture (things like MVCC, vacuum, buffer cache, WAL), installation and managing the server, using psql, data organization from both logical and physical points of view, and an overview of access control, backups, and replication.

The course is organized in several lessons. Each lesson consists of 20..60 mins of theory followed by 20..30 mins of practical assignment.
For practical exercises students should use laptops with the course virtual machine installed.
Minimum requirements: 64-bit host operating system and 1GB of spare operating memory for the VM.
