Los Angeles PostgreSQL Day

Friday, February 25, 2011 - 09:00 - 17:00

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows.

The Los Angeles PostgreSQL Day will present talks designed for a general audience of web developers, sysadmins, DBAs and open source users. Talks will have significant technical content.

These topics include:

  • Interesting PostgreSQL Case Studies
  • Solutions to common problems
  • Performance, scaling and optimization
  • PostgreSQL Administration
  • Using PostgreSQL with popular languages or tools
  • Replication and clustering

In addition to the technical presentations there will be a session of 5 minute "lightning talks" for subjects related to PostgreSQL.
