Speaker: Isaac Morland, Computer Science (CSCF)
Isaac will show how easy it is to get started with PostgreSQL and use it for various data management tasks. He will start by installing a new copy of PostgreSQL, then import some data and show some examples of data processing made easy by the advanced features of PostgreSQL. Isaac will also discuss briefly the strategic value of using PostgreSQL, independent of its technical merits.
