Pat Wright is running this month’s #PGSQLPhriday, and the topic is “What is the PostgreSQL Community to you?”
The answer for me is very versatile, and covers quite a lot. Took me a moment to gather the facets, and likely I’m still missing some parts.

PGConf.de 2015 is the sequel of the highly successful German-speaking PostgreSQL Conferences 2011 and 2013. Due to space limitations in the old location, we are moving to Hamburg. The conference takes place on Friday, November 27th. We also add a day with trainings on the 26th.
Registration for the conference will be possible well in advance. Tickets must be purchased online. For sponsors, we have put together a package that includes among other things, a number of discounted ticket. More in the Call for Sponsors in a separate announcement.
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.

"Chemnitz Linux Days" is one of the main Open Source and Linux conferences in Germany, for the 15th consecutive year now. And personally it's one of my favourite conferences.
Based on experience from the past two years I decided not to have a booth, but nevertheless submitted two talks. One was accepted: "Replication with PostgreSQL" (slides and script here). On the laptop keyboard&mouse: Andreas Kretschmer. On the microphone: me. It was the first talk in the morning, but the room was full with visitors. We got nice feedback about the talk as well and had to continue discussions outside of the room, when the next talk started.

Viel Spaß damit.
The German-Speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2011 is over!
It was a very good event and the response was much greater than expected. Thanks to all who have come to Oberhausen - despite the start of the carnival at the same day. Honestly, I had 50 visitors set as the limit to declare the event a success for myself. Two days before the conference we had to close the registry because the planned capacity at that time were already almost fully utilized. At this time, we had almost 90 registrations - including walk-ins we certainly topped the 100.
