PostgreSQL Community Event This event is recognised under the community event guidelines.

The annual gathering of the PostgreSQL community in Down Under is just a couple of months away. PostgreSQL Down Under (PGDU) is excited to bring to you the third edition of its annual conference, just days after the much-anticipated major release of PostgreSQL, version 12!

It’s our pleasure to invite you to speak at PGDU 2019 in Sydney.

Whether you are a seasoned speaker or thinking of speaking for the first time, PGDU offers you the opportunity to submit a paper.

In the past, we had talks covering:

  • Case studies (Tell us how you are making use of PostgreSQL somewhere)
  • Personal experiences (A day in the life of you and PostgreSQL)
  • Tools and utilities (Tabs or Spaces? Want to stir debate or demonstrate your love publicly?)
  • Migration stories (Maybe filed under Horror/Thriller, Comedy, Drama, or perhaps Action?)
  • New & existing features (I love PostgreSQL because…)
  • New feature development & vision (If only PostgreSQL would have … I will be ….)
  • Benchmarks (Hail ye quants…)
  • Performance & scaling (Put the pedal to the metal)
  • Enterprise readiness (Security, backup & recovery, audit, compliance, etc)
  • Lightning talks (tweets impersonated, 3-5 minutes)
  • Facilitate a forum (suggest a topic)

Got an idea that doesn’t fit above, we are all ears!

You can choose between a 45-minute slot (with Q&A included) or a 5-minute lightning talk.

The Call for Papers is now open at the event website until 5 pm AEST on 5th October 2019.
