FOSDEM PGDay and Devroom 2016 - Announcement & Call for Papers

FOSDEM PGDay is a one day conference that will be held ahead of FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan 29th, 2016. This will be a one-day focused PostgreSQL event, with a single track of talks. Registration is required to attend, the registration will open 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 Sunday the 31st, 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://fosdem2016.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://fosdem2016.pgconf.eu/callforpapers/ for details and submission information.

The deadline for submissions is December 7th, 2015, but we may as usual pre-approve some talks, so get your submissions in soon!


We will provide a special rate with the Brussels Marriott Hotel. For details, see http://fosdem2016.pgconf.eu/venue/.

PGDay Caribbean 2014 - April 1st joke

You might have guessed it, yesterday's announcement about the PGDay Caribbean 2014 was an April joke.

I've got this idea back at FOSDEM 2014 when we discussed possible options for our European PostgreSQL conference this year (and no, this conference will certainly not take place in the Caribbean).

There's another first: on the first day after the Call for Papers we already got two talk submissions ;-) I'm not sure, but I think this never happened before.

I would like to thank Magnus Hagander for his help with the DNS setup, cross-checking the website content, correcting my mistakes and everything, without him this would not have been possible.

Will leave the conference website online for a few more days, enjoy it!

CHAR(11)

Was the first time that I actually had the chance to attend CHAR(11). For various reasons (speak: my wife had tickets for a musical) I could not attend last year.

After arriving in Cambridge and a decent dinner on Sunday, I went early to the venue on Monday (*wow*). Registration: check, breakfast: check, EMC booth: check, tea: check - maybe not in this particular order. Let's start the day.

Most of the talks were very interesting and it's good to see, how others attempt to solve the same problems we have in Greenplum. Because of many questions, Simon organized a podium discussion with Yeb Havinga, Willem Dijkstra (both MGRID), Koichi Suzuki (Postgres-XC) and Rob Klopp (Greenplum) just before lunch. It's also interesting that people would like to see some of the technology in PostgreSQL - we have to talk with our product management, if we can make this happen.

Monday ended in a very good dinner in a near college, it looked a bit like the big hall in Harry Potter - just the candles were missing ;-) Tuesday ended in a barbeque outside the venue. Both gave the chance for the usual conversations which I enjoyed a lot.

Hopefully I can attend again next year.

Go to CHAR(11)

CHAR(11), the conference about Clustering, High Availability and Replication takes place in Cambridge, UK. As usual, it is also one of these conferences where you can meet a fair share of the PostgreSQL folks.

Had to rent a car, because I have another appointment right after the conference. Boy, I tell you: driving on the left side of the street is ok. At least that's what I usually do on German motorways. But having the wheel of the right side of the car is just insane. Anyway, I made my way to Cambridge - without any accidents.

Met Dave, Harald, Jan and Magnus at the venue and a beer later we went out for dinner. Dave and Magnus made a reservation in the Browns restaurant only some minutes away. Some more people joined us over the evening. The food was nice, and Dave actually tried to order better drinks than I did. Well, he tried ;-)

Looks like we will see another interesting database conference.
