Italian PGDay 2011: the schedule is online!

Posted on 2011-11-07

PGDay.IT 2011, "Where it all started".

Yes, PGDay returns to Prato, where in 2007 the first edition of a PostgreSQL conference ever took place in Europe and where in 2008 the first official European PostgreSQL Day happened.

The conference will take place on Friday November 25 at the Monash University Prato Centre. Social events are expected for Thursday evening and Friday evening.

One keynote speech, 16 talks in two parallel tracks (general/DBA and developers) and one "lightning talk" session so that everyone can share their own experiences.

Special guest of the event is Magnus Hagander, core team member and president of PostgreSQL Europe. His keynote speech will describe PostgreSQL 9.1 strengths.

Simon Riggs, major developer and committer, will be talking about PostgreSQL and NoSQL databases, as well as sharing his vision on PostgreSQL futures with the attendees.

Community members Andreas Scherbaum will be talking about data warehouse tuning, Gianni Ciolli about debugging with writable CTEs, Gabriele Bartolini about backup and recovery, Marco Nenciarini about SSI, Postgres in the cloud and extensions.

The detailed version of the program, which is subject to change, is available on the conference website.

All the Italian users and developers of PostgreSQL are encouraged to participate to the event, the main annual conference about the world's most advanced open-source database. It is an unrepeatable opportunity for everyone to get the latest news on PostgreSQL and to get in touch with some of the developers.

We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you in Prato very very soon!
