How bad data gets into the pipeline, how developers make data bad and worse in the pipeline. This talk will look at data sources, data types, and ways Postgres can be used to abuse data. Renee Phillips brings her experience before joining the tech world, and after to discuss problems seen in many data sources. Renee's background in Medical Anthropology and work in various industries taught her the effects of bad data on decision making. Her recent experience doing QA for a startup gave her new insight into data quality issues at the source. She will talk about some of the things that a user can do or not do in PostgreSQL that might or will definitely lead to data corruption.

This talk is suitable for users of all experience levels. A version of this talk was presented at PGDay Nordic in 2019
