Postgresql conference sessions

9:00am–12:30pm Tuesday, 07/17/2012
You have your shiny new PostgreSQL source tarball or package, but what to do with it? In one intense tutorial, we'll go through everything need to install, configure, and maintain your new, tuned, replicated, back-uped PostgreSQL installation.
4:10pm–4:50pm Thursday, 07/19/2012
Recent shifts in the tech world - including PaaS, cloud-services, and NoSQL - have dramatically altered the manner in which software is written, deployed, and run. This talk will discuss how PostgreSQL fits into - and can potentially take advantage of - this world.
5:00pm–5:40pm Thursday, 07/19/2012
This session provides an overview of PostgreSQL 9.1 Foreign Data Wrappers, a mechanism for retrieving data from remote data sources. We will contrast the native C interface with the Python interface provided via the Multicorn project. A real-world example will retrieve business data from and combine it with data held in native PostgreSQL tables using a simple SQL JOIN.
