Room: Zurich
Level: Beginner

PostgreSQL is rising among big companies and some of them want to contribute actively to the project. How can we include them in the Postgres community ? How can they help ? How can we federate their efforts ?

Since 2016, The Cross-Enterprise Work Group ( called “Groupe de Travail Inter-Entreprises” - acronym PGGTIE - or “GT Inter-Entreprises” in French) is a dedidacted task force inside the PostgreSQLFr non-profit association.

The group has more then 25 members, including : Air France, Carrefour, CNES, EDF, SNCF, Societe Generale and others... see : https://www.postgresql.fr/entreprises/english

The French Enterprise Workgroup is willing to help similar initiaves in other country or at the European level. This talk is intended as a starting point for an open discussion to build more bridges between the PostgreSQL community and the corporate world.
