FOSDEM PGDay and Devroom 2015 - Announcement & Call for Papers

FOSDEM PGDay is a one day conference that will be held ahead of FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan 30th, 2015. 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 Brussels Marriott Hotel. Registration is required to attend, the registration is open. 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 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://fosdem2015.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://fosdem2015.pgconf.eu/callforpapers/ for details and submission information.

The deadline for submissions is November 24th, 2014, but we may as usual pre-approve some talks, so get your submissions in soon!


We also have negotiated rate with the Brussels Marriott Hotel. For details, see http://fosdem2015.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! 

PGDay Caribbean 2014 - Sommer, Sun & PostgreSQL

PGDay Caribbean 2014 is a one day PostgreSQL conference which takes place on August 1st, in the beautiful city of St. Martin in the Caribbean. The event follows a well known pattern from other PGDay events: great talks, good community, drinks - and we add summer and sunshine on top.

The Call for Papers will be opened tomorrow, but we have a limited number of seats, so head over to the conference website and make your reservation today!

See you in the Caribbean!

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.
