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.
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.
Our program committee includes:
Robert Haas, Major Contributor, PostgreSQL committer,
Josh Berkus, Core Team member,
Greg Smith, Major Contributor to PostgreSQL and author of High
Performance PostgreSQL 9.0,
Gavin Roy, CTO of MyYearbook.com and
