YeSQL: Battling the NoSQL Hype Cycle with Postgres (+beer, drinks, swag, food)

Free beer + drinks, swag, junk-food + win a GoPro Hero!

Bruce Momjian, Co-Founder of The PostgreSQL Global Development Group

A Database Month event

Relational databases are regularly challenged by new technologies that promise to make SQL obsolete, but the new technologies often fade into obscurity.

This talk explores how new NoSQL technologies are unique, and how existing relational database systems like Postgres are adapting to handle NoSQL workloads.

Bruce Momjian is a co-founder of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group, and has worked on PostgreSQL since 1996 as a committer and community leader.

He is the author of PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts, published by Addison-Wesley. Bruce is employed by EnterpriseDB as a Senior Database Architect.

Swag giveaway + junk-food/drinks at 6:30pm
Power-Networking at 6:35pm
Presentation starts at 6:40pm

    I, for one, would appreciate more dedicated time to network and chat with others before/after the talk. Most people left rather quickly after the talk (it was a bit late, so i suspect they had to get back home), so something before might be best?

      I saw someone "tape" the talk, so something should be available.

    Was informative to me. I did know of YeSQL and NoSQL databases but Postgres with its capabilities was a new to me. Will for sure take a deeper look at Postgres. Maybe even start moving into Postgres direction professionally.
