Technology Lightning Talks- Keynote

PostgreSQL 11- Bruce Momjan
PostgreSQL benefits from over 20 years of open source development and has become the preferred open source relational database for developers. PostgreSQL 11 was released on October 18. It provides users with improvements to overall performance of the database system, with specific enhancements associated with very large databases and high computational workloads.

MongoDB 4.0- Alexander Rubin
Do you love MongoDB? With version 4.0 you have a reason to love it even more! MongoDB 4.0 adds support for multi-document ACID transactions, combining
the document model with ACID guarantees. Through snapshot isolation, transactions provide a consistent view of data and enforce all-or-nothing execution to maintain data integrity. And not only transactions - MongoDB 4.0 has more exciting features like non-blocking secondary teads, improved sharding, security improvements and more.

MariaDB 10.3- Arjen Lentz
MariaDB benefits from a thriving community of contributors. The latest release, MariaDB 10.3, provides several new features not found anywhere else, as well backported and reimplemented features from MySQL."
