Announcing PyPgDay at PyCon US 2013!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012
In coordination with the Postgres community and PyCon US 2013, PyPgDay is occurring in Santa Clara on March 13 from 9am-6pm.

PyPgDay will be a full-day event with seven talks about PostgreSQL and Python, including talks by contributors to PostgreSQL, Django, PostGIS, and Python. Half the talks will help PostgreSQL DBAs, and the other half will focus on developing Python applications using Postgres features.


Postgres and Python are more vibrant communities that have much in common. Both at their core are open communities that believe in making the world better through the software they release. Beyond just similarities in the communities many Python users are Postgres users and vice-versa. Because of the overlap in users among many of these communities allowing the opportunity for both to benefit from closely timed and coordinated events it makes it easier on attendees of both.


While there are a couple of Postgres talks at PyCon PostgreSQL for Pythonistas and Going beyond the Django ORM limitations with Postgres if you're interested in going deeper then PyPgDay is the place for you.
PyPgDay is likely to cover topics about:
  • Highlights of recent releases (JSON, replication, others)
  • Guidance for running Postgres
  • Setting up replication
  • More advanced usage

Further details

  • Where: Santa Clara Convention Center
  • When: March 13, 2013 9am-6pm (likely social event to follow)
The event is being run by the San Francisco PostgreSQL Users Group. You can follow details around the event on the Postgres wiki.
