ScotRUG: Scott Riley - Working with High Volume Postgres Databases in Rails

Scott Riley works at Cultivate, and is coming to give us a talk about working with high volume Postgres databases in Rails. Working in web frameworks that ship with Object-Relational Mappers (ORMs) like Active Record can sometimes blunt our appreciation for what’s going on at the storage layer. Here’s an opportunity to sharpen up our understanding of the interaction, also to think about what we might need to change when the volume is turned up.
