This talk will cover Foreign Data Wrappers, the new interface to external data not under the control of Postgres. Using Foreign Data wrappers yo can pull together many disparate data sources in a single PostgreSQL application, often without having to worry where the data is coming from.

The talk will cover how to use existing Foreign Data Wrapper modules, and will also describe creating a new one, with a simple example (a small amount of C code is involved).
