We are glad to have Josh Berkus, PostgreSQL expert attending FOSS.IN next week.

Josh regularly blogs here: blogs.ittoolbox.com/database/soup.
Josh is speaking on PostgreSQL 8.3: A story of many patches:
PostgreSQL 8.3 is out. Learn how it was developed, including how the biggest feature of the new version was developed by an Indian programmer, Pavan Deloasse, and how you can contribute to the new version. Also, find out about some of the features in the new version.
Why is Josh excited to be in FOSS.IN?
In his own words...
It's the first chance a member of our core team has been able to speak at a major conference in India. Since India and China are in all probability the future leading countries in software, it's very important that PostgreSQL build up our Indian community. I hope to get started on that at FOSS.In.
