2Q PGConf

December 4 & 5
W Chicago - 172 West Adams Street, Chicago, Illinois 60603-3604

Welcome to 2Q PGConf 2019

2Q PGConf is a conference dedicated to exchanging knowledge about the world’s most advanced open source database: PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system with a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems and is well-equipped for enterprise use.

The current and future needs to store, access, and manage data can be challenging as the world of technology is constantly evolving and progressing. 2Q PGConf provides a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and learn more about PostgreSQL from world-class experts talking about both recent achievements and the exciting developments coming in the future.

In addition to the world class talks being presented in Chicago – we are also offering training sessions the day before the conference on December 4th.
