Change the future

PyPgDay 2013

In coordination with the Postgres community PyPgDay is occurring in San Francisco on March 13 (the first day of the tutorials) from 9am-6pm.

PyPgDay will be a full-day event with seven 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.


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.


While there are a couple of Postgres talks at PyCon PostgreSQL for Pythonistas and Going beyond the Django ORM limitations with Postgres if you're interested in going deeper then PgDay is the place for you. PgDay is likely to cover topics about:

  • Highlights of recent releases (JSON, replication, others)
  • Guidance for running Postgres
  • Setting up replication
  • More advanced usage
