PostgreSQL Conference Europe 2012 Publishes Schedule - Joe Celko to
deliver opening keynote

PARIS, France – September 3, 2012 – PostgreSQL Europe today published
the schedule for PostgreSQL Conference Europe 2012 and announced that
Joe Celko, industry veteran and bestselling author, will be delivering
the opening keynote. Joe will share with the audience a look into the
way the industry first developed SQL, and what we will do next in the
world of databases. PostgreSQL Conference Europe, one of the leading
worldwide conferences on PostgreSQL, is taking place from 23-26
October at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague, The Czech Republic.

In addition to Celko's keynote, other luminaries of the open source
community and the business and public sectors including Bruce Momjian,
co-founder of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group, EnterpriseDB,
Magnus Hagander, Redpill Linpro, and Josh Berkus, PGExperts, all
members of the PostgreSQL Core Team, as well as Simon Riggs, CTO of
2ndQuadrant and Guillaume Lelarge, CTO of Dalibo, both long-time
contributors to the PostgreSQL community, will address topics ranging
from database internals to end-user case studies for small companies,
large multinational corporations and government organisations. The
conference offers multiple parallel tracks and sessions in English and
Czech. There will be PostgreSQL training sessions on October 23, the
day prior to the opening day, with half and full day sessions on a
range of topics.

The broad range of technical topics continues the PostgreSQL tradition
of creating a conference that attracts a diverse attendance, from DBAs
already using PostgreSQL or considering doing so to PostgreSQL
contributors, application developers, and decision makers seeking to
evaluate alternatives to proprietary databases. Topics this year
include performance tuning, replication and scalability, cloud
deployments, management of non-traditional data including geospatial
information and ranges, and integration.
