Atlanta, GA – Big Nerd Ranch announces PostgreSQL Bootcamp for
October 4-8, 2004

The Big Nerd Ranch is pleased to announce the return of one of the
most popular classes in its line-up, PostgreSQL Bootcamp. PostgreSQL
is the most advanced open-source database available and is an ideal
low-cost and robust relational database solution for those seeking to
escape the hassle and cost of a proprietary database. With minimal
administration requirements, an active and supportive community of
peers, and boasting the reliability and stability of open source
applications, PostgreSQL is rapidly becoming one of the most widely
deployed database management systems. Its applications range from
accounting packages to customer relations and contact management to
medical records.

Instructor Aaron Hillegass, heralding the return of the class, said,
“The course is comprehensive and task-oriented. We anticipate that
this class will be of great benefit to students seeking a deep
understanding of PostgreSQL.”

By the end of the rigorous five days of instruction, students will be
able to build and install a PostgreSQL server and its client
libraries; incorporate SQL92, SQL extensions, libpq and DBI for the
retrieval of data; create triggers, views and rules; develop custom
server-side data types and functions using either C or pgsql; and
optimize and maintain the performance, security and reliability of
the server.
