PGDay.IT 2015: nine editions and counting!


We made it!
ITPUG (Italian PostgreSQL Users' Group) organized the ninth edition of the Italian PGDay, namely PGDay.IT.
We have a very strong a quite long tradition in organizing this national conference, and as in previous editions, we had a successful conference even this year.
The location, the Camera di Commercio di Prato, was simply great: a modern and really beautiful context to host the two tracks and the third edition of the ITPUGLab, the Open Space container entirely dedicated to PostgreSQL.
The keynote speech was performed by the well known community member Andres Freund, but he was not the only member of the international community.
After the keynote and the usual coffee break, with many delicious Italian pastries, the conference split in two parallel tracks where a set of very competent and efficient speakers  presented new projects, ideas, features and core implementations of our favorite database.
In the afternoon another track added to the already mentioned two giving the possibility to attendees to participate to the ITPUGLab, another well established tradition of the PGDay.IT.
Last but not least, the usual session of lightning talks, the group picture and the very good beer offered by one of the conference sponsor.

At the end we can count one hundred attendees, ten regular talks, sixteen speakers, six sponsors and two social beers.

It is quite difficult to recap in a few lines what this event was and has been in the past edition. I can only say that if you are missing this conference you are missing a very technical event within a friendly environment and fun context
