Wait what? Postgresql can do that?

Steve Pousty   

You know, and probably already love, PostgreSQL as your relational database. But this session will show you all the other features you never knew Postgresql brought to the table. We will show you how you can forget about using ElasticSearch, MongoDB, and Redis for a broad array of use cases. We will add in some nice statistical work with R embedded in Postgresql. Finally we will bring this all together using the gold standard in spatial databases, PostGIS. The end goal of the session is to show you how Postgresql should be 80 of the 80/20 rule when choosing a datastore. Unless you have a specialized use case, PostgreSQL is the answer.
