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.

PGConf.EU 2023 Review

PGConf.EU 2023 is over, time for my personal review of the conference. Overall we got good and very good feedback, for most parts.

PGConf.eu 2023 Speaker Dinner

Traditionally, we (the conference organizers) invite the speakers and volunteers to a dinner the evening before the conference. The venue is downstairs, and the seating splits the larger group up into up to 6 people per table. Ideal conditions to walk around, chat with everyone, talk with old friends and meet new peoole.

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?'

PostgreSQL Data Types workshop at SCALE18x

SCALE 18x is taking place during the next week, in Pasadena, CA. I will present a 3 hours workshop about PostgreSQL data types on Friday morning.

In order to attend, you need a SCALE registration. No special knowledge is required for the workshop. If you want to follow the exercises, you need a PostgreSQL database installed on your computer.

See you there!


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.

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.


PostgreSQL @ FOSDEM 2018

For more than 10 years, the PostgreSQL Project is present at FOSDEM. We also organize a separate PostgreSQL Day on Friday.

This blog post presents useful information about both the PGDay and the booth and devroom at FOSDEM.


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)
