Last week saw the 3rd event in as many years in Singapore, and yet this time something was very different. For the last 2 years, we had been conducting the conference as a PostgreSQL track with FOSSASIA. This year, we were able to pull off an entirely independent, 2-day event completely focused on PostgreSQL!
The event kicked off with a keynote from Joe Conway (flying in all the way from USA!), who talked about the features to look forward to in PostgreSQL 11. The release is currently scheduled for September 2018. This was followed by 8 talks on the first day and 7 talks on the second day. We also had a round of lightening talks, which were followed by a speaker/sponsor dinner.
As an organizer, one of the things that made the conference very exciting for me was the quality (more…)
pgDay Paris 2017 is the third annual one-day, one-track PostgreSQL conference, held in Paris, France. The schedule is live!
This year, all presentations are in English in order to bring the very best of the international community to Paris and to show how PostgreSQL is used around the globe.
Here is what you'll see at pgDay Paris 2017:
A PostgreSQL DBAs Toolbelt for 2017 by Kaarel Moppel, a consultant from Austrian PostgreSQL company Cybertec, takes us on a tour of handy tools and scripts that every DBA should know about.

Un événement communautaire
Cette année encore 2ndQuadrant aide la communauté PostgreSQL en France en étant Partenaire du pgDay 2017 à Paris
Cette journée de conférences, en anglais exclusivement, est une opportunité unique d'en apprendre plus sur le fonctionnement et l'activité de PostgreSQL. Sécurité, benchmarks, supervision, roadmap pour la version 10, réplication, ... de nombreux sujets, variés et d'actualité. A noter qu'il n'est pas nécessaire de savoir lire Shakespeare dans la langue pour comprendre ce qu'il va se dire, c'est donc également une bonne occasion de renforcer votre anglais technique!
2ndQuadrant tient à remercier Vik Fearing pour sa très forte implication dans l'organisation de cet événement communautaire appuyé par l'association Européenne (more…)
This year, the ITPUG (Italian Postgres User Group) organized PGDay in Prato, my hometown and city where the association was born, although most of the members are from outside of the Tuscany region.
It was my pleasure to contribute to the community by sharing my professional experience. I gave a talk about PostgreSQL on Network File System, a research based on crash tests to prove reliability using PostgreSQL on NFS. Sharing my PostgreSQL experience with the participants was useful and pleasant.
During the event, I had the chance to attend the talk about tools for upgrading Postgres between major releases given by Denis Gasparin; and the one about ULSS's (Regional Healthcare System) migration to Open Source, given by Giorgio Roncolato, proving that more institutions than we thought (more…)
