Accepted Talks:

Postgres and Debian

The pkg-postgresql team packages the core Postgres database server/client, the supporting postgresql-common infrastructure, as well as numerous extensions and 3rd party projects around it. In addition, some of its members also maintain the official Postgres APT repository at apt.postgresql.org. This repository hosts not only the default Postgres version per Debian (and Ubuntu) relase, but also all other upstream supported versions.

This talk will present how Postgres works in Debian/Ubuntu, give an overview of the pkg-postgresql team’s work, highlight some of the most useful extensions and projects and also briefly present the changes in Postgres between the releases for jessie (9.4) and stretch (9.6), as well as in the upcoming 10 release.
