Because Who Needs Another Gold Statue Anyway?
In the world of databases, where seriousness often reigns supreme… Well, you know me! I always want to inject a bit of humor and fun. Welcome to the inaugural “Golden Trunk 2023” award – my impulsive celebration of PostgreSQL community brilliance, where a golden elephant trunk steals the spotlight. Inspired by the grandeur of events like the Oscars and Globes, the “Golden Trunk” award was born – a celebration of the best articles about PostgreSQL!
Judged by Yours Truly: Me
I’m keeping things refreshingly simple in a world dominated by complex algorithms and intricate scoring systems. What are the criteria for determining the most viewed articles? Look no further than my discerning eye! That’s right – I, Pavlo Golub, will personally judge articles!
