No video of the event yet, sorry!

There are many users who need to migrate their applications from Oracle to the open source Postgres, but in order to support the new database, users often need to re-develop the application, which is inconvenient. If there is a database based on Postgres and compatible with most Oracle syntax and functions, it will be too convenient for customers. However, the official Postgres project will not accept this kind of code submission. After all, Postgres is Postgres, and Oracle is Oracle.

So, let's make an Oracle compatible database.

This talk will introduce how to make a database compatible with Oracle syntax based on PG, and introduce the IvorySQL project. This project is an open source project (Apache 2.0) led by Highgo Software and currently has released version 1.2 based on PostgreSQL 14.2.

Welcome everyone to contribute to this open source Oracle compatible database - IvorySQL, powered by PostgreSQL.
