Postgres and Python are more vibrant communities that have much in common. Both at their core are open communities that believe in making the world better through the software they release. Beyond just similarities in the communities many Python users are Postgres users and vice-versa. Because of the overlap in users among many of these communities allowing the opportunity for both to benefit from closely timed and coordinated events it makes it easier on attendees of both.
PyPgDay will be a full-day event with talks about PostgreSQL and Python, including talks by contributors to PostgreSQL, Django, PostGIS, and Python. Half the talks will help PostgreSQL DBAs, and the other half will focus on developing Python applications using Postgres features.
Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Times: 9:00AM to 6:00PM, plus a party afterwards (schedule here)
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA
Room: Room H (near the escalators)
Run By: San Francisco PostgreSQL User Group and PostgreSQL Experts Inc.
