  • PostgreSQL continued to be the DBMS of the year for 2018. An interesting fact is that there is a new release every year. So we have another new release this year, PostgreSQL 12. It is planned to be released in the third quarter of the year 2019. There are a lot of improvements in partitioning, query planner, Indexing and some SQL features, etc. Among all of the interesting features for developers and admins, we shall be discussing 25 of them in 40 mins with some examples and benchmarks done on the PostgreSQL 12.

  • This talk is to introduce PostgreSQL 12 and its new features to audience. It is designed into several categories such as improvements in Partitioning, Indexing performance, Query Planner improvements, SQL improvements, Table access methods and other improvements. By the end of the talk, the audience should have a clear understanding of all the features and benchmarks.
