|Italian PostgreSQL Day 2007
||[May. 10th, 2007|11:46 am]
The PostgreSQL Day (aka PGDday) is a day of celebration. Celebration for PostgreSQL and, on a wider view, for the free software and open-source communities based in Italy and Europe.|
The event (the first in Italy) will take place in Prato , Tuscany on July 6 and 7 2007, on the eve of the 21st anniversary of PostgreSQL, a project that was started on the 8th of July 1986, at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Italian PGDay 2007 is a chance for Italian and European users and developers of PostgreSQL to catch up, learn, build relationships, get to know each other and consolidate a real network of professionals that use this outstanding product for the daily management of relational and object databases.
Another fundamental goal for the event, is to promote the usage of PostgreSQL as a completely free tool for database management, a very competitive alternative to proprietary solutions.
Among the others, the most suitable audiences for the event (and the most suitable targets for PostgreSQL usage as well) are:
* government organisations
* schools and universities (for direct usage and educational purposes as well)
* small and middle size companies
PGDay is organised as a set of parallel talks, seminars, presentations, tutorials and practical workshops that will run throughout the day. Based on the target and the level of knowledge of the product, the happenings will be divided into:
* advanced technical level presentations
* basic technical level and use-case presentations
The event will be preceeded by a national and European initiative known as Road to PGDay 2007, whose aims are to promote PGDay throughout Italy and Europe by involving local free software communities such as LUGs.
