PyTN Profiles: Craig Kerstiens and TEDxNashville

Speaker Profile: Craig Kerstiens (@craigkerstiens)

Craig is part of the team at Heroku, and launched their Python support for the platform, and now runs product for the Heroku Postgres team.

On Saturday February 22nd at 3:15 PM, Craig will be presenting on Going beyond the Django ORM limitations with Postgres.

With most frameworks the ORM attempts to treat all databases equally, this results in developers being limited in how many advantages they can take of their database. In particular Postgres has many features which developers would love to take advantage of but are not easily accessible via the Django ORM.

Sponsor Profile: TEDxNashville (@tedxnashville)

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) Learn more at the TEDxNashville website.
