His closing keynote, “PostgreSQL in 5 Years – Expectations from the market place,” will begin at 15:25 on November 1.
EnterpriseDB, which employs some of the most prolific and dedicated members of the Postgres community, provides support and education to help foster growth and innovation among developers and educate the business community on using Postgres to cut costs and meet business goals. As interest in Postgres continues to expand, EnterpriseDB is developing new educational programs to meet the growing demand for training.
“PostgreSQL Conference Europe represents an opportunity for European PostgreSQL users and developers to engage in a meaningful dialogue about their experiences,” said Sandor Klein, Managing Director Europe, Middle East and Africa for EnterpriseDB. “Our educational programs also provide an opportunity for database professionals and application developers to enhance their skills and deploy Postgres to reduce their database spend.”
EnterpriseDB will be running two half-day training sessions at the event in addition to its sponsorship. The courses, to be held on Tuesday, October 29, are PostgreSQL Performance Tuning and Data Processing Inside PostgreSQL.
