FOSDEM PGDay and Devroom 2014 - Announcement & Call for Papers

FOSDEM PGDay is a one day conference that will be held ahead of FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan 31st, 2014. This will be a one-day focused PostgreSQL event, with a single track of talks. This conference day will be for-charge and cost 50€, and will be held at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in downtown Brussels. Registration is required to attend. Registration is not yet open, but will be soon. Since we have a limited number of seats available for this event, we urge everybody to register as soon as possible once open.

PostgreSQL Europe will also have our regular devroom at FOSDEM on Saturday the 1st, which will be held at the main FOSDEM venue at ULB. This day will, of course, continue to be free of charge and open to all FOSDEM entrants. No registration is required to attend this day.

For full details about the conference, venue and hotel, see http://fosdem2014.pgconf.eu/.


The call for papers is now open for both these events. We are looking for talks to fill both these days with content for both insiders and new users. Please see http://fosdem2014.pgconf.eu/callforpapers/ for details  and submission information.

The deadline for submissions is December 15th, 2013, but we may as usual pre-approve some talks, so get your submissions in soon!


We also have negotiated rate with the Radisson Blu hotel in Brussels. For details, see http://fosdem2013.pgconf.eu/venue/.

German-speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2013 (towels inside)

Yesterday (Friday) we ran the German-speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2013. Once again (like 2011) it took place at the Rheinisches Industriemuseum in Oberhausen, followed today and tomorrow by the OpenRheinRuhr Open Source conference and exhibition. And like 2011 we had a "full house", this year we had to close the registration even earlier than last year. Unfortunately the museum has a limited amount of seats, which somewhat limits us here. In the end, we had 105 attendees.

We had 22 talks (including keynote) by 23 22 speakers, where 5 speakers are not from DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). That is a great success too.

I think it's almost time to start thinking about the 2014 edition of pgconf.de.
