Moderatör:

Teresa Giacomini

Teresa joined Citus Data as a Principal Marketing Program Manager to create programs & events that help developers learn what the Citus extension to Postgres can do for them. Before Citus Data, she worked at Oracle as a Principal Engineering Program Manager, where she managed field communications, new product introductions, and events large and small—from Oracle OpenWorld to customer advisory boards. In the operating systems group at Sun, she was the Open Source Community Manager for OpenSolaris where she grew the number of user groups from zero to 150+. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from U.C. Berkeley. A farm girl at heart, she likes to hang out in the garden with her chickens when she's not at work.

Marco Slot

Marco is a principal engineer at Citus Data, although he prefers to be called chief bug fixer. He's been working on distributed systems for over a decade. Citus is the most exciting technology he's worked on. Every time there is a new feature, countless new possibilities are created within the database. He works on all parts of Citus and on lots of crazy ideas. Before joining Citus Data, he worked on distributed operating systems, helped start Route 53 and CloudFront at Amazon, and got a PhD in cooperative self-driving cars. He loves mountain hiking but he lives in a flat country, so he travels around a lot and cycles on the flats of nearby dunes and tulip fields.

Nils Dijk

Nils joined Citus Data because he is obsessed with distributed systems problems like TopK, and he wanted the opportunity to work on beautiful data structures like bloom filters. Prior to working on the Citus database, he built an ETL stack at Bottlenose that ingested more than 10% of all tweets into an online analytical database. At Uber, he worked on the distributed systems layer that powered most of their dispatching stack. His degree is in Computer Science from the University of Applied Science of Amsterdam in Game Technology. In his spare time, when he's not on the meetup circuit in Amsterdam, he analyses multiplayer video games to extract movement information and social graphs from the players.

Önder Kalacı

Onder joined Citus Data as a software engineer to scale out Postgres. And to do something that had not yet been done: a full outer join of an awesome RDBMS with a robust distributed system. Before joining Citus, he worked as a software developer on an environmental monitoring system, a dynamic data race detection framework, and unified threat management. He earned a B.S. degree from METU and an M.S. degree from Boğaziçi University in computer engineering. He thinks thread level parallelism is the perfect topic for dinner table conversation.
