The event will be September 17-19, 2012, in Chicago, and will kick off with an opening keynote by Django co-creator Jacob Kaplan-Moss on what led the Django open source community to designate PostgreSQL as its default database. It will mark the first time the Django Project publicly addressed its support for PostgreSQL.
The Postgres Open conference was established last year by a group of major contributors within the Postgres Community. Selena Deckelmann, an independent database consultant who helped launch the event, said the goal was to spur greater dialogue among business users of Postgres. The event provides a venue for business executives, database administrators and developers to exchange experiences and best practices for using Postgres to support business objectives.
