The PostgreSQL Project is present with a booth at FOSDEM ever since 2007. Since 2008 we organize a Devroom, since 2013 we have our own PGDay on the Friday before FOSDEM. This year marks the 8th FOSDEM PGDay.

This blog post presents useful information about the PGDay, the booth and Devroom at FOSDEM.

How we manage the PostgreSQL FOSDEM devroom

The PostgreSQL Project was assigned a devroom at FOSDEM again this year. We got a room with approx. 200 seats, and as usual every last seat was taken for many of the talks. This requires that we manage the room very effectively and carefully, both to avoid that people walk in and out at all times and disturb the speaker, but also in order to keep the exits free at all times.

 

For a speaker it is quite disturbing if the door in the back opens, someone walks in, down all the way to the front, tries to find a seat, walk around to the other side, maybe leaves again, or just stays somewhere and blocks the exit. The worst case is when there is a free seat somewhere in the middle of a row, and everybody has to get up to let the new attendee in.

 

The FOSDEM team requires that we keep the exits free, in case the room needs to be evacuated. If people are staying on the steps along the wall, it is not possible to clear the room effectively and quickly.

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.

Slides from my talk "Tour de Data Types: VARCHAR2 or CHAR(255)?" at FOSDEM 2017

I had the opportunity to talk about the many datatypes in PostgreSQL, in the PostgreSQL Devroom at FOSDEM 2017. It's quite interesting how many people only use the basic data types and don't know the broad range of types which PostgreSQL is offering.

My slides are available here: *click*

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.
