PGSQL Phriday #003: What is the PostgreSQL Community to me

Pat Wright is running this month’s #PGSQLPhriday, and the topic is 'What is the PostgreSQL Community to you?'

Hugo: Count entries in Taxonomy

For the 'PostgreSQL Person of the Week' interviews I'm using Hugo as static blogging engine. Part of every interview is the list of tags, which links this interview to other similar interviews. However until recently no one really knew if a tag is popular or just used in this interview. I wanted to change this, and add the tag count behind every tag.

First PostgreSQL Meetup in Hamburg

InnoGames is hosting a PostgreSQL Meetup Tuesday next week in Hamburg, in their office in Hammerbrook. You have a wonderful view over the skyline of Hamburg from the rooftoop meeting room.


German-speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2015

PGConf.de 2015 is the sequel of the highly successful German-speaking PostgreSQL Conferences 2011 and 2013. Due to space limitations in the old location, we are moving to Hamburg. The conference takes place on Friday, November 27th. We also add a day with trainings on the 26th.


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.


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.

German-Speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2011 - A résumé

The German-Speaking PostgreSQL Conference 2011 is over!

It was a very good event and the response was much better than expected. Thanks to all who have come to Oberhausen - despite the start of the carnival at the same day. Honestly, I had 50 visitors set as the limit to declare the event a success for myself. Two days before the conference we had to close the registry because the planned capacity at that time was already almost fully utilized. At this time, we had almost 90 registrations - including walk-ins we certainly topped the 100.


German-speaking PostgreSQL Conference - Last chance for registration

The German-Speaking PostgreSQL Conference takes place on November 11th in Oberhausen, Germany. Last chance for your registration!


Taverne Sirtaki in Siegburg

Nach dem die FrOSCon zu Ende war, blieb noch das Problem des Abendessens. Schließlich stand für die meisten aus dem PostgreSQL Team noch eine längere Heimreise an. Das Problem wurde wie üblich dadurch gelöst, das ein Restaurant in der Nähe ausgesucht wurde.

Diesmal fiel die Wahl auf die Taverne Sirtaki in Siegburg - zufälligerweise nur ein paar Häuser weiter von dem Steakhaus, das wir am Abend zuvor besucht hatten. Eine Reservierung war telefonisch auch schnell erledigt, so dass wir zu sechst gegen 19 Uhr hungrig dort ankamen.
