PostgreSQL meetup - An Evening With Bruce

An Evening With Bruce - PostgreSQL Usergroup NL - April 11th 2023

Furthermore YOU have the opportunity to ask Bruce everything you always wanted to know about PostgreSQL during a 'fireside chat'. In this Q&A session Bruce will answer questions from the members of the Postgres Usergroup.
