Workshop title

Visa Direct to your DB

Abstract

If you’re a software engineer who’s not a database expert, this workshop will teach you a superpower you didn’t know about. We’ll hook up Moov’s iso8583 message processor directly to postgres via an extension and a stored procedure. We’ll talk about how the database is more powerful than you think, when to lean on that superpower, and show that some pretty wild things are possible.
