PostgresOpen 2019 - Free Childcare, Closed Captioning, & More!

Greetings!

PostgresOpen is both the longest continuously running PostgreSQL conference and the only dedicated community recognized event in the United States. Our conference delivers two days packed with fantastic sessions all about PostgreSQL and related open source technologies, one day of extended workshops, and the usual hallway and social track. Our eighth annual conference will be held September 11th - 13th, 2019 in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Centre Hotel.

Workshops will be on Wednesday, September 11th, with the main conference occurring on Thursday, September 12th - Friday, September 13th.

Registration for the conference is closing as the conference is happening in just 2 weeks! We will have on-site registration but it’s strongly recommended to register as soon as possible, as workshops have a limited number of slots available and some are just about filled to capacity already.

Be sure to choose the ones you’d like to attend before they’re full in order to reserve your spot -

Inclusion

We have several exciting updates around PostgresOpen 2019 - first of all, we’re offering free on-site childcare to ALL attendees from Sunshine Babysitting Hotel Childcare this year! Their team will be at the conference location from 8 AM - 5 PM on all three days, and they will be providing games, toys, snacks, and crafts. This is a perfect opportunity to visit the absolutely beautiful city of Orlando and bring your family along to visit Disney World, Universal, Harry Potter World, or the multitude of other fantastic options during the weekend following the conference.

Video recordings will be made for all sessions (not including workshops) and will be made available on YouTube after the conference, as per usual. We are excited to include closed captioning on all videos uploaded for the 2019 conference! Videos from past years of our conference can be found on our official PostgresOpen YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/PostgresOpen

Additionally, we are providing quiet rooms for both speakers and attendees. If you have work to do, need to make a phone call, or just need some space ~ regardless of the reason, a room will be available for that purpose.
