PGDay Austin 2016

November 12, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm


Join PostgreSQL users and advocates in Austin for a day of PostgreSQL at PGDay Austin 2016, on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at the Austin Galvanize campus (118 Nueces St. Austin, TX 78701).

Our theme is “Everything’s Bigger in Postgres”, with a focus on PostgreSQL’s role in the community of “Big Data” of Data Science — deep computing, analytics, and scalability. We encourage content for all knowledge/experience levels, and welcome content that speaks to users new to PostgreSQL as well as practical applications and case studies. We welcome any PostgreSQL contributors and users, as well as other external communities including but not limited to Python, Djanjo, Rails, JSON, to attend.

Technical presentations from various experts including Jim Nasby, Justin Tocci, Will Leinweber, Corey Huinker and more. OpenSCG will host an Install Fest with BigSQL, and we will also have a round of lightning talks in the afternoon.

A silent auction will take place in the afternoon to benefit local non-profit ChickTech Austin, which empowers high school girls and encourages them to consider careers in technology through hands-on workshops and mentoring.
