Josh Berkus of PostgreSQL
The BSD family of operating systems isn't the only BSD licensed software whose roots originate from the University of California at Berkeley. While many are familiar with Berkeley's contributions to Unix, fewer are aware of the role it played in the formation of modern database systems.

In this interview, Josh Berkus provides some insights into PostgreSQL from his perspective as a core developer.
