The core of any corporate data center is the database system. As a true Open Source RDBMS, PostgreSQL competes with the likes of Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server for a place in corporate back offices. In this session we will cover the concepts and language of talking to PostgreSQL.

  • Syntax - How to talk to PostgreSQL via it's standard SQL compliance.
  • Performance - Why some requests take longer than others, and how to make the most complicated queries faster.
  • Robustness - Using transactions to protect the investment of your corporate data.
  • Functionality - Extend your manipulation of your data with built-in procedures and functions

This presentation will start simple and attempt to explain the more advanced topics surrounding maximizing the benefits of PostgreSQL in the enterprise.
