Kubernetes has become a popular platform among application developers for building cloud-native applications. They value the flexibility to deploy anywhere, automate tasks, and expedite production.

At the same time, PostgreSQL has increasingly become the database of choice among application developers.

For anyone who has deployed or looking to deploy Cloud Native PostgreSQL, a big question is how do I get connected and then how to leverage built-in features.

Join us during this session as we talk about what's next after you have deployed a PostgreSQL cluster using EDB's Kubernetes Operator. Topics on the agenda include an overview of Operator patterns with stateful workloads, what makes up Cloud Native PostgreSQL, tools to benchmark Cloud Native PostgreSQL, What makes PostgreSQL a fit for Kubernetes, PostgreSQL flexible data types, Document databases vs Relational databases, Imperative vs Declarative stateful infrastructure, databases in your CI/CD pipeline, and deploying your application anywhere.
