This talk will focus on the various ways that individuals can contribute to the survival and development of PostgreSQL. This can include provision of time, resources and money in a variety of ways. Sometimes the community can be a little difficult for newcomers to get to grips with. We will discuss how people in different roles, including developers, translators, documenters, and testers can get involved with the community successfully. We will look at the development process, including patch reviews.
We will also look at how companies who are major users of PostgreSQL in various ways can become successful and respected members of the community.
