The PostgreSQL Replication tutorial will have a heavy hands-on component which will require preparation by attendees. Those who do not prepare will be unable to participate fully in the tutorial, although they are welcome to attend and watch.
The following will be required:
- A "full service" laptop capable of running VirtualBox or Docker, with at least 1 GB of RAM.
- Installation of VirtualBox/Vagrant or Docker.
- Installation and activation of tutorial materials from the tutorial repository
The tutorial materials have now been updated for the tutorial at LinuxConf.AU 2015. Please download, install and activate now.
There will not be time during the tutorial to install or troubleshoot software.
Please note that the materials you download are for a 3.5 hour tutorial; as such, we will not be covering the entire set of materials during the LCA session. You are invited to retain a copy of the materials for self-paced learning outside the tutorial session.
For residents of Wellington who are interested in a longer and more complete version of this tutorial, one will be given an New Zealand NIWA offices in Wellington on January 20th from 9am to 3pm. To attend this tutorial, contact NIWA; there is a fee.
