The world of PostgreSQL continues to grow stronger by the year!
Last week we saw it all come together at PostgresConf US 2018 in Jersey City. The conference was held to promote awareness and usage of PostgreSQL through tutorials and case-studies, as well as providing the opportunity to listen first hand to some of the best minds in the community.
The 5-day event allocated two days to hands-on trainings on various PostgreSQL development and management topics. The remaining days were filled with over 80 breakout sessions covering everything related to PostgreSQL you could imagine.
At 2ndQuadrant, we take pride in supporting the continued development of the world’s most advanced open source database. Ranging from our product offerings to training sessions and services, we believe in nothing but the best. It’s at the heart of everything we do! Our experts made sure to put their best foot forward by covering the following topics:
- “Internet of Things with PostgreSQL – Performance & Security” by Simon Riggs
- “Next generation PostgreSQL replication with pglogical3 and BDR3” by Peter Eisentraut
- “Contributing to PostgreSQL” by Andrew Dunstan
- “PostgreSQL — Past, present and future” by Simon Riggs & Tom Kincaid
At PostgresConf, we also announced the 3rd generation of Postgres-BDR, a groundbreaking multi-master replication tool for PostgreSQL databases. The prominent features of the new release include AlwaysOn Architecture, Rolling Upgrades and Point-in-time Recovery. We received an enthusiastic response to BDR, which was further complemented by Peter Eisentraut’s deep dive session on PostgreSQL replication.
Events like this help bring the international PostgreSQL community together. This is something we witnessed during our conversations with representatives of PUGs from China and South Africa, alongside attendees from the USA. It was a wonderful sight to see hundreds of people coming together from all across the world to celebrate PostgreSQL. We had a great time and we look forward to more events like this that strengthen the open source and PostgreSQL ecosystem.
