Location: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus
Speaker: Andrew Dunstan
The PostgreSQL project released v8.4 of its relational database in July. Andrew Dunstan will introduce us to the project as a whole, and delve into some of the new features (e.g. Windowing Functions) of the recent release. Andrew is also part of the Postgres development team, so as a bonus, we may get a sneak peek at in-development improvements (e.g. Streaming Replication).
Postgres is behind the scenes of many well-known sites and companies, including Cisco, Debian, MySpace, OpenStreetMap, Skype, and Yahoo!.
