On February 6th-7th, the Digital October Center will play host to PGCONF.RUSSIA 2015, the first pan-Russian forum to bring together the developers, users, and administrators of PostgreSQL.
A community of PostgreSQL users has already emerged in Russia. It includes several leading developers and the authors of a number of noted PostgreSQL subsystems. The organization has already held several meetings: last summer’s PgDay brought together 300 people in Saint Petersburg, while September’s meeting at Yandex gathered 200. Representatives of the organization also draw crowds at major conferences in Russia and abroad.
PostgreSQL is a shareware object-relational database management system (ORDBMS), the most highly developed open DBMS in the world. It offers viable alternatives to commercial databases. PostgreSQL provides a proven level of excellence in reliability, expansivity, data security, and high-quality organizational support. Major commercial companies (including Avito) are already using PostgreSQL and building their businesses using it. Major financial institutions facing the challenges presented by import substitutions and gaining their independence from major foreign suppliers have already shown an interest in PostgreSQL.
The forum’s aim is to bring together all of PostgreSQL’s developers, users, and administrators, as well as representatives of the business community, government organizations, and the companies in charge of choosing platforms for the free exchange of vital information. By doing so, the government will see that PostSQL is ready, and that it is able to complete extremely difficult tasks. The forum will feature discussions about using alternatives to commercial products in systems that are important to government and business and demonstrate the potential for using shareware products like PostgreSQL in critical applications.
Leading Russian and foreign developers, as well as representatives of companies that have already introduced PostgreSQL, will take part in the conference. The forum will feature discussions about using alternatives to commercial products in systems that are important to government and business and demonstrate the potential for using shareware products like PostgreSQL in critical applications, using high-traffic systems, tools for administrative tasks and the development of expanding applications.
