PhillyDB members are database developers, data architects, DBAs, analysts - and application developers, too.
We meet to learn about enterprise systems (Oracle, SQLServer, DB2), open source systems (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite), big data management systems (Hadoop, MPP, NoSQL, NewSQL, and real-time SQL databases), and analytics tools.
Come learn with us. And if you're doing or building something interesting, come tell us about it!
