Postgres Rising in Russia

November 11, 2014

I just returned from two weeks in Russia, and I am happy to report that Postgres is experiencing strong growth there. I have regularly complained that Russian Postgres adoption was lagging, but the sanctions have tipped the scales and moved Russia into Postgres hyper-adoption mode. New activities include:

  • Postgres Day in Saint Petersburg in July
  • Moscow meetings in September and October with 180 attendees
  • October Postgres Day in Saint Petersburg
  • Strong Postgres presence and booth at Highload++
  • 2015 conferences in Moscow and Saint Petersburg

As part of my visit I spoke at EnterpriseDB partner LANIT. The hour-long presentation was recorded and covers:

  • Postgres community development process
  • Comparison of Postgres to proprietary databases
  • Future direction of Postgres
