PGConf India, 2017will be held in Bengaluru India on March 2nd (Tutorials/Trainings) followed by the main conference on March 3rd, 2017.
This conference is part of our effort to grow the PostgreSQL community by increasing awareness and providing the appropriate training and resources to further PostgreSQL adoption
Our 2016 conference saw more then 150+ participants having representation from 45+ organizations. This year we expect a much larger gathering (200+) of fellow PostgreSQL users and some of the best developers in India and abroad to attend the conference. This year we have decided to do trainings and have two parallel tracks for the main conference, which means more interesting topics to choose from.
This year we are lining up some great community leaders as speakers for the conference.
Simon Riggs (CTO @ 2ndQuadrant and Developer/Committer at PostgreSQL Community) would be delivering the Key Note for this year’s conference
Robert Haas (VP, Chief Data Architect @ EnterpriseDB) has accepted our invitation to speak at the conference.
Talk submissions have exceeded our expectations and already more than doubled from previous year.
Full schedule for the conference would be updated by next week.
We currently have 2ndQuadrant and Taashee Linux Services as our Platinum sponsors and EnterpriseDB as our Gold and Video sponsor.
We would like to invite other Organizations who work on PostgreSQL to support the conference and help spread awareness about PostgreSQL in India.
If you would need additional details please feel free to reach out to us. Further details are also available on http://pgconf.in
