Press Release updated: Oct 19, 2017 13:29 BST

2ndQuadrant today announced that CEO Simon Riggs will give the keynote at PGConf.EU 2017, being held October 24-27 in Warsaw, Poland. PostgreSQL enthusiasts from around Europe will come together for the largest European community event of the year.

In his keynote talk Postgres-XL 10, Riggs will discuss how the Postgres-XL project, sponsored and developed largely by 2ndQuadrant, is fully caught up with the latest version of its parent project, PostgreSQL 10. He will explain varying use cases of Postgres-XL, presenting benchmarks to illustrate superior performance over other parallel processing features in open source PostgreSQL.

Riggs will also be joined by other members of 2ndQuadrant, covering a wide range of topics. As the author of Logical Replication, the most exciting new feature in PostgreSQL 10, Petr Jelinek will introduce the new feature, demonstrate its use, and discuss the current state in PostgreSQL. Logical Replication is a long-awaited addition to PostgreSQL that has been added after years of hard work. Join Jelinek to learn more about its integration into core PostgreSQL and what its future looks like in his talk Logical Replication in PostgreSQL 10.

Expanding on the talk given by Jelinek, Gulcin Yildirim will cover the different ways of upgrading PostgreSQL and propose an automated tool to overcome downtime requirements in her talk Near-zero Downtime Automated Upgrades of PostgreSQL Clusters in Cloud. Vik Fearing will be answering common questions about the different kinds of buffers used for caching in PostgreSQL and explains how to configure them in his talk PostgreSQL Basics: Buffers.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
