PGConf NYC Announces Record Crowd for the United States' Largest PostgreSQL Conference

Event on April 3-4, 2014 Spotlights Innovation, Education and Best Practices for PostgreSQL Users

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- PGConf NYC, the United States' largest event for the open source relational database PostgreSQL, today announced more than 200 delegates are confirmed for PGConf NYC 2014, to be held April 3-4 at the New York Marriott Downtown.

PGConf NYC attracts database administrators, open source service companies and software application developers for general workshops, educational sessions and targeted session tracks. In recent years and this year in particular, the event has drawn an increasing number of enterprise executives and government agency leaders who have discovered the value and cost savings of open source database software.

"Each year, we have at least doubled participation in PGConf NYC, and we are excited to see that more individuals and organizations are embracing PostgreSQL for their mission-critical needs," said Jonathan S. Katz, PGConf NYC 2014 Co-chair and the CTO of VenueBook. "With sessions from leading PostgreSQL contributors and use cases from startups to Fortune 500 companies, this event is helping to bring together both the open source and the commercial worlds to create a stronger PostgreSQL community."

PGConf NYC is supported by the New York City PostgreSQL User Group. The group is a subsidiary of the United States PostgreSQL Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on providing educational resources for PostgreSQL users and supporting the adoption of PostgreSQL throughout the United States. PGConf NYC is made possible through financial support from its sponsors, including Platinum sponsor EnterpriseDB and Gold sponsors OmniTI, 2ndQuadrant and Heroku.

"PGConf NYC brings together PostgreSQL users to exchange knowledge, learn new techniques and expand the body of expertise at the community level. PostgreSQL is the world's largest independent open source development community and the community draws strength from events like PGConf NYC," said Marc Linster, senior vice president, products and services at EnterpriseDB.

Some of the highlights from the schedule:

  • Keynote: Bryan Doyle, Vice President, Technical Division, Goldman Sachs
