Phil Vacca @PhilVacca
Phil Vacca has been designing highly scalable applications for years. He has worked for and consulted with enterprises of vast and varied data needs, including some of the nation's largest insurers, defense industries, telecom providers, and many others. While always happy to build and improve Production facing applications, his favorite projects involve data warehousing and analysis. Currently he leads an effort at Mitel Networks to move all enterprise data to a single, streaming event-fed data lake, and a relational data warehouse built on the Postgres fork, Amazon Redshift.
Phil is an active speaker, and can be found extolling the virtues of the world's most advanced open source database as a member of pgMKE, the Milwaukee area PostgreSQL Users Group.
