3° Intensive one-day PostgreSQL national mini-conference
PostgreSQL is the leading open source database system, with a global community of thousands of users and contributors and dozens of companies and organizations. The PostgreSQL Project builds on 25 years of engineering, starting at the University of California, Berkeley, and has an unmatched pace of development today. PostgreSQL's mature feature set not only matches top proprietary database systems, but exceeds them in advanced database features, extensibility, security and stability.
Sessions will range from highly technical focusing on the core topics to introductory levels presented by other users, developers and contributors to PostgreSQL.
This PGDay is hosted by the PostgreSQL Argentina Users Group, in Buenos Aires, at the the Universidad Siglo 21 venue and made possible through the generous support from sponsors. Admittance is free of charge, but you have to do the web registration. Limited seats.

Postgres is a truly awesome database. When we started working on Launchpad I wasn't sure if it would be up to the job. I was so wrong. It's been robust, fast, and professional in every regard.
Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu Linux
PostgreSQL is well positioned for building and running applications in the cloud. PostgreSQL 9.1 provides some of the most advanced enterprise capabilities of any open source database, and is backed by a vibrant and innovative community with proven customer success.
