With all of the new users to PostgreSQL, one of the things we wanted to do for PGConf NYC this year was to have a video showing the history of PostgreSQL. We ended up with a very professional video showing how the features have grown over the years and by the applause of the attendees delivered on our goals. You can see it at:

However, our proof of concept video was very different. Since I was done by me and my video editing skills are very limited, its not nearly as clean and professional. I also have the feeling that Jonathon Katz was afraid we’d freak out some people with the Five Finger Death Punch background music so we ended up going to more professional route. I still think it had some potential so I posted it up to YouTube:

Also, thanks to Kirk Roybal for putting together the animation of PostgreSQL source code changes over the years.
