Glad you are interested in this project! > Can I have more detailed information of what documents or code that I > need to understand? I would recommend the following documents and code: * Source code of pg_protobuf https://github.com/afiskon/pg_protobuf * "Writing Postgres Extensions" tutorial series by Manuel Kniep http://big-elephants.com/2015-10/writing-postgres-extensions-part-i/ * "So you want to make an extension?" talk by Keith Fiske http://slides.keithf4.com/extension_dev/#/ * Apache Thrift official website https://thrift.apache.org/ * Also a great explanation of the Thrift format can be found in the book "Designing Data-Intensive Applications" by Martin Kleppmann http://dataintensive.net/ > Also, if this idea is allocated to other student (or in other worlds, > you prefer some student to work on it), do let me know, so that I can > pick some other project in PostgreSQL. Any comments or suggestions are > welcomed! To my best knowledge currently there are no other students interested in this particular work. -- Best regards, Aleksander Alekseev
