It may be hot outside, but that's nothing compared to PostgreSQL and this month's talk
. We welcome back PostgreSQL core developer and EnterpriseDB Senior Database Architect Bruce Momjian
to discuss the latest about that "other" open source database and what EnterpriseDB is doing to keep everyone on their toes.
EnterpriseDB has produced a fully open source version of Postgres, called Postgres Plus. Postgres Plus includes not just the database server but most of the add-on packages that users need to use Postgres effectively in an enterprise environment. This talk will focus on those additions and how they are designed to increase Postgres adoption. The talk will also briefly cover EnterpriseDB's Advanced Server, which adds Oracle compatibility to Postgres.
Bruce Momjian is a co-founder of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group, and has worked on PostgreSQL since 1996. He is the author of PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts, published by Addison-Wesley. Bruce is employed by EnterpriseDB. Previously, he was employed by SRA Japan and Great Bridge LLC, both PostgreSQL support companies. He has spoken at many international open-source conferences. Prior to his involvement with PostgreSQL, Bruce worked as a consultant, developing custom database applications for some of the world's largest law firms. Prior to this, he was a high school computer science teacher and holds a Masters in Education.
