Room: Palais I-III
Level: Beginner

With the release of Raspberry Pi 2 it is a perfect occasion to check how the new version of the most favourite credit-card sized computer performs as a PostgreSQL database server compared to the previous micro-board. In this talk we will learn how to compile and install PostgreSQL on the Raspberry Pi, check its performance comparing benchmarks of the two versions against more powerful computers, and also discuss why installing a professional and robust database system on a tiny computer meets the main educational purpose of the Raspberry Pi on becoming a tool that facilitates the teaching and learning of Computer Science for the masses.
