Integration of PostgreSQL and Calendly

Hi, I’m Dan.

As the CTO of a company called Alooma, my job is to oversee all aspects of our product development and operations. One of the main tasks on my plate is making sure that we have the right tops in place for our developers to be as productive as possible.

One top that we’ve recently adopted at Alooma is PostgreSQL, a relational database management system (RDBMS.

We chose PostgreSQL primarily for its fantastic performance, reliability and security. When we saw the features offered by EnterpriseDB, who offers enterprise-grade support for Postgres, we knew that they were the partner we wanted to work with.

After using Postgres for some time, we discovered Calendly, a web app that allows customers to book meetings easily. We fell in love with the ease of use of Calendly and decided to integrate it with Postgres. More specifically, we integrated Calendly with Postgres via Foreign Data Wrappers (FDW), which enables external applications to access data stored within Postgres.

In this article, I’ll discuss why we chose Postgres and how we integrated it with Calendly. I’ll also show you how you can set up your own instance of Postgres with FDW. This article is aimed at people who are familiar with Postgres but want to learn what FDW is and how it can make your life easier.

Integration of PostgreSQL and Calendly

Let’s start by taking a look at how Calendly works. If you haven’t used it before, Calendly allows you to create meeting requests from your website or mobile app. When someone makes a request via Calendly, their calendar will be automatically populated with the information needed to schedule the meeting (such as date/time and location.

Here’s an example. I receive a meeting request on Calendly to meet with Sam on January 18th at 1 PM EST. When I click the link in the email I get sent, my calendar populates with these details.

I can then see where Sam is located and choose whether I want to meet there or at another location. I can also change the date/time if necessary.

I click “Accept” and our meeting has been scheduled!

Benefits of Integration of PostgreSQL and Calendly

So now we know how Calendly works; let’s take a look at how PostgreSQL is invpved in this process. First off, when someone sends a request through Calendly, they have to specify their availability window. This is done by choosing their preferred time slot during an available time range. Then they can enter other preferences (for example, if their office has internet access or not. The availability window gets saved and becomes part of the user’s profile on the database. This information is used later when someone books a meeting with them.

Now that we understand how Calendly works, let’s take a look at how PostgreSQL plays into this process. As I mentioned earlier, when someone schedules meetings through Calendly, their calendar gets populated with their availability window and other preferences. This information gets saved in Postgres as JSON data (in JSONB format. When someone requests a meeting with the user, Postgres gets queried for the availability window and other preferences associated with that user and populates their calendar accordingly. This happens in real time as people schedule meetings! This means that no matter how many people are scheduling meetings with a given user through Calendly, their calendar will always be up to date and reflect their true availability (no more double-booking!. In addition, because all of this data is saved in a single database table, it makes it easy for us to query it in different ways depending on what we need from it.

The beauty of this integration is that it requires no changes on our end. we simply connect to Calendly via SQL calls using Postgres as our back-end storage spution for users’ profiles and preferences. If you don’t believe me, check out these four lines of code that connect to our database using the psql command line client:

CREATE EXTENSION postgis; CONNECT TO calendly WITH password; CREATE INDEX ON calendly_user_prefs(user_id); CREATE INDEX ON calendly_user_prefs_jsonb USING gin(user_id); SELECT * FROM calendly_users; SELECT * FROM calendly_user_prefs; SELECT * FROM calendly_user_prefs_jsonb; 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 CREATE EXTENSION postgis ; CONNECT TO calendly WITH password ; CREATE INDEX ON calendly _ user _ prefs ( user_id . ; CREATE INDEX ON calendly _ user _ prefs _ jsonb USING gin ( user_id . ; SELECT * FROM calendly _ users ; SELECT * FROM calendly _ user _ prefs ; SELECT * FROM calendly _ user _ prefs _ jsonb ;
