PSQL State of the Union
What's new and what's next for PSQL products. This session will cover the latest features for the PSQL product line plus a preview of what is planned for PSQL v13, including a reporting engine, simplified Btrieve API, Docker support and PSQL on the leading IoT OS platforms Raspbian and Windows IoT (Enterprise and Core).
Speaker: Desmond Tan, Director of Engineering, Actian

Btrieve Client API Update
How would you like to manipulate Btrieve files directly from a general purpose scripting language, from a web page, or in an object-oriented fashion, or all three! This session provides an overview and demonstration of API enhancements being considered for manipulating Btrieve data files directly from C, C++, Python, PHP and Perl. The updated API can be adopted in traditional PSQL and new IoT applications.
Speaker: Tom Bates, Principal Software Development Engineer, Actian

Running PSQL on IoT Devices
PSQL support on Raspbian and Windows IoT will be more powerful with the updated Btrieve API. Besides C and C++, programming options like Python, PHP and Perl can be used for writing applications for micro-computing devices like the Raspberry-Pi. This session will demonstrate and discuss running PSQL on IoT platforms including Raspbian and Windows IoT.
Speaker: Sunil Jacob, Product Architect, Actian

PSQL in Docker

Docker, probably the most talked-about infrastructure technology of 2016, makes it possible to get far more apps running on existing servers and makes it very easy to package and ship programs. Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries - anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment in which it is running. This session will cover what you need to know about running PSQL in Docker, including a demonstration of simple PSQL applications.
Speaker: Tom Bates, Principal Software Development Engineer, Actian

PSQL Tips and Tricks
This session will showcase using PSQL utilities for data management, including building new DDF's from old DDF's or other files and the new dumpdb utility.
Speaker: Linda Anderson, Sustaining Engineering Manager, Actian

Open Discussion: Direction for PSQL in IoT
The final session of the day will include an interactive discussion of the possible plans for PSQL in the Internet of Things with the goal of getting customer and partner feedback on the features and developer support infrastructure required to make PSQL in the IoT a success.
Discussion Leader: Desmond Tan, Director of Engineering, Actian
