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.
WhyPostgres 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.
TopicsWhile 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
- Where: Santa Clara Convention Center
- When: March 13, 2013 9am-6pm (likely social event to follow)
