PostgreSQL @ FOSDEM 2017 - Review

FOSDEM 2017 is over, and hopefully everyone is back home. Time for a short review.

Once again, PostgreSQL ran a pre-conference to FOSDEM, called PGDay. One day just filled with awesome PostgreSQL talks, and meeting community members.

Many speakers uploaded or linked their talks to the PostgreSQL Wiki. If the slides for a talk are missing, please contact the speaker and ask them to upload or link the slides. (For the record, my slides are here)

The FOSDEM video team already uploaded the recordings, and the PostgreSQL Volunteers reviewed every single video. Find them here. Devrim also did short recordings of most of the talks, and posted them on Twitter.

The Hacker Public Radio did interviews with many projects, including PostgreSQL. Find the interview here.

The PostgreSQL Project had a Devroom on Sunday. The schedule is part of the regular PGDay/FOSDEM schedule. And of course we managed to fill the room to the last seat, standing room only. If only people would obey the "Room is full" sign on the door ;-)

We also had a booth (pic 2, pic 3) in the main building, where you can talk with community members about anything around PostgreSQL. Also we had some nice merchandise. Matching the bad weather, the umbrellas went very well. We promise to have more next year.

Last but not least, Slonik visited FOSDEM. Here is just a short selection of pictures.

Hope to see you all next year!

 

P.S.: The next PostgreSQL Europe Conference will be in Warsaw, in October. Details can be found here.

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.

Chemnitz Linux Days 2013

"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.
