Presented by:

Karthik received his BS and MS in CS from IIT-M and UT Austin. Karthik was one of the original database engineers at Facebook responsible for building distributed databases such as Cassandra and HBase. He is an Apache HBase committer, and also an early contributor to Cassandra, before it was open-sourced by Facebook. He is now a Co-Founder & the CTO at YugaByte, the company behind the open source YugaByte DB project that is bringing together NoSQL and SQL in a single globally distributed database.

Building applications on PostgreSQL that require automatic data sharding and replication, fault tolerance, distributed transactions and geographic data distribution has been hard. In this 3 hour workshop, we will look at how to do this using a real-world example running on top of YugaByte DB, a distributed database that is fully wire-compatible with PostgreSQL and NoSQL APIs (Apache Cassandra and Redis). We will look at the design and architecture of YugaByte DB and how it reuses the PostgreSQL codebase to achieve full API compatibility. YugaByte DB support for PostgreSQL includes most data types, queries, stored procedures, etc. We will also take a look at how to build applications that are planet scale (requiring geographic distribution of data) and how to run them in cloud-native environments (for example, Kubernetes, hybrid or multi-cloud deployments).
