Often new database releases focus on brand new features and shiny additions, but Postgres 12 focused more on performance and feature optimization, with a goal of producing a finely-tuned, well-polished implementation of existing PostgreSQL capabilities.

Of course, when a new release includes shiny new features, the hype cycle makes it easy to advocate for, but Postgres 12 is a more subtle release. True, there are some shiny new features (JSONPath anyone?), but even better, this release ups the game for many of the features that got headlines the last few release cycles, providing a more polished experience for Postgres' many capabilities.

Join me as we take a look at some of my favorite changes that will make your life better, like improvements to Common Table Expressions, B-Tree index improvements, and better partitioning support, in this latest and greatest version of Postgres. This won't just be a bunch of boring slides, we're doing this as 100% Demos, and since it is all done live, we can choose to focus on the features you most want to look at. So come take a look at what's new in Postgres 12, and see what this Open Source database can do for you!
