Asia Pacific’s largest PostgreSQL conference set for March

PGConf APAC has announced its third user conference, which will be held on March 22-23, 2018, in Singapore. Known to be the only large-scale PostgreSQL conference in Asia Pacific, PGConf APAC aims to create a platform for the developer community to network, exchange ideas and get better equipped on Postgres.

"This event is a part of the effort to grow the PostgreSQL community by increasing awareness and knowledge to enhance PostgreSQL adoption in Asia Pacific. It's an excellent opportunity for attendees to explore more about the world's most advanced open-source database," said this year's keynote speaker Joe Conway, VP (PostgreSQL Engineering) at Crunchy Data Solutions, who is also a board member of the United States PostgreSQL Association (PgUS).

Ashnik, one of Southeast Asia's leading enterprise open source companies, will be the host partner for the event and some of the company's Postgres experts will be among the speakers at PGConf APAC 2018.

"Postgres has become a preferred open source relational database worldwide; and its growing community continues to contribute towards its success and adoption across several large enterprises today. We are delighted to host this Postgres conference which represents and connects the industry's most forward-thinking minds," said Kaustubh Patwardhan, Ashnik's director who heads the company's business across SEA and Hong Kong.

The event is also supported and sponsored by industry leaders such as Fujitsu, 2nd Quadrant and EDB Postgres. Bruce Momjian, who is acore member of the PGConf APAC committee, said: "I am excited that there's another PGConf APAC planned for March. I know previous events have been a big success and I am sure this one will be as well. I know Ashnik and the other event sponsors are working hard to grow Postgres in APAC, and this is another great step in that direction."

Ashnik's solution consultant, Monika Agrawal, will be presenting "Real time Bancassurance data exchange with PostgreSQL using its XML Magic" on 23 March. To see the event's speaker-list and for more information, visit:
