Postgres Open 2011, a conference focused on disruption of the database industry through PostgreSQL, will take place September 14-16, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois at the Westin Michigan Avenue hotel.
"PostgreSQL’s consistent addition of new features and enhancements, while remaining focused on reliability and performance, has provided
myYearbook a solid foundation to create new and innovative applications,” said Gavin Roy, CTO at myYearbook. “We are looking forward to the Postgres Open Conference as a venue to share, network, and learn innovative ways to leverage Postgres in our environment."
Postgres Open, a community-organized, non-profit conference, addresses the breadth of PostgreSQL usage, from core database system design to
enterprise database use. Postgres Open includes regular talks, keynotes and hands-on tutorials.
We are pleased to announce that VMWare and EnterpriseDB are joining Postgres Open as founding sponsors. Other initial sponsors include Credativ, Enova Financial, MyYearbook, 2ndQuadrant, and PostgreSQL Experts. If you are interested in sponsoring Postgres Open, see the Sponsors Page.
The theme of the inaugural conference is “disruption of the database industry”. Topics will include new features in the latest version of PostgreSQL, use cases, product offerings and important announcements. Invited talks and presentations will cover many of the innovations in version 9.1, such as nearest-neighbor indexing, serializable snapshot isolation, and transaction-controlled synchronous replication. Vendors will also be announcing and demonstrating new products and services to enhance and extend PostgreSQL.
Postgres Open 2011's main program (September 15-16) will be preceded by a day of intensive, half-day tutorials.
The Call For Papers for Postgres Open will open in late May. Please see the Postgres Open website for further updates.
