FOSDEM and FOSDEM PGDay 2024 Review

A review of FOSDEM 2024 and the FOSDEM PGDay 2024

PostgreSQL @ FOSDEM 2024

The PostgreSQL Project is present with a booth at FOSDEM ever since 2007. And ever since 2008 we organize a Devroom, starting 2013 we also have our own PGDay on the Friday before FOSDEM. This year it's the 10th FOSDEM PGDay, skipping 2021 and 2022 for obvious reasons.

It's beer o'clock for PostgreSQL

A couple days ago Devrim forked PostgreSQL to get a beer. That effort is of course laudable, but a bit extreme. PostgreSQL is very extensible, and allows to implement a beer now clock with just a few easy steps.

PostgreSQL @ FOSDEM 2020

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.

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.


PGCon 2011 - First day

PGCon 2011 started today with a bunch of interesting talks. The weather in the morning was unsurprisingly bad, it was heavily raining. Also there was an announcement about a new PostgreSQL Conference (Postgres Open Conference), taking place in September in Chicago.


PGCon 2011 - Postgre NoSQL

Postgre NoSQL - that’s what Devrim was talking about in the Royal Oak pub. But more about his big failure later.


First day of PGDay.Eu 2010

The first day of PGDay.EU 2010 was cool. All the work done yesterday now paid out: registration for everyone took only seconds and nobody had to wait.
