In case you missed it, here's a roundup of Day 1 highlights.


Keynotes by leaders in technology

This year's keynote speakers included best-in-class tech leaders, such as Suzette Kent, former U.S. federal CIO and business executive; Ed Boyajian, president and chief executive officer of EDB; Jeremy Wilmot, chief product officer of ACI Worldwide; and Bruce Momjian, vice president and Postgres evangelist at EDB.

Tracks delivering Postgres for everyone

The four tracks—on Postgres for the enterprise, application development, emerging technologies, and the Postgres community—were built to help IT leaders, data architects, developers, DBAs, and DevOps teams learn how Postgres is advancing the future of data, and which new tech and trends will define the future of Postgres.

Day 1 featured sessions at times accommodating all regions: US, EMEA, and APJ. These included:

A session with Andy Pavlo of Carnegie Mellon University. He spoke about OtterTune, an Automated Database Configuration Tuning Service for Postgres. Robert Haas talked about What's New in PostgreSQL 14, highlighting what is coming in the next major release of PostgreSQL this fall. We also had a number of enterprise users share their story of transformation using Postgres, detailing their Postgres journeys.
