Call for Proposals

Citus Con: An Event for Postgres is free, virtual, and global developer event happening Apr 12-13, 2022. You might even call it a distributed event. No travel is involved. And yes, there is a code of conduct. To make things easy for speakers, we’ll take care of the video recording and production, both for the livestream and on-demand talks. Talks are 25 minutes long and in English. The CFP is now open: come join us to share what you can do with the world's most advanced open source database—from the nerdy to the sublime.

Live Sessions & On-Demand Videos

There will be 3-hour livestreams in 3 different geographies (Americas, APAC, EMEA). We're looking for talks from Citus open source users, Azure database customers, Postgres and Citus experts from Microsoft, and Postgres community members.

On-demand talks will be pre-recorded in March and published on the Microsoft Developer YouTube channel on April 12th.
