Welcome to PostgreSQL Europe, the "umbrella group" for PostgreSQL User Groups in Europe and for users in regions that don't have a local user group. Our goal is to promote the use of PostgreSQL in Europe. We do this primarily by assisting local user groups to promote the product locally through conferences and other advocacy, as well as running European-wide conferences and other activities.
Like in previous years, we conduct interviews with our speakers ahead of this year's PostgreSQL Conference Europe.
The first interviews are already online: pgconf.eu 2018 - Speaker Interviews
If you are speaking in Lisbon, and haven't already submitted your answers, please check your mailbox. There should be an email asking you if you want to participate.
The conference is at this point completely sold out. The waitlist is still activated, and we recommend anyone who is interested in going to sign up as soon as possible since seats can open up from cancellations. Any ticket that gets available is offered to the waitlist at a first come first serve basis.
Nordic PGDay 2019 will be returning to Copenhagen, Denmark on March 19, 2019. This year, the conference is held right on the waterfront in the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel.
Our call for papers is now open, accepting proposals until the end of the year. We are looking for speakers both from the Nordic region, the rest of Europe, and the whole world. Technical details, case studies, good ideas or bad ideas -- all are good ideas for topics. All speakers get free entrance, so it's also a good excuse to come visit Denmark!
Registration will open shortly!

We still have some tickets (around 25 at the time of this writing) left, so if you register quickly you can expect an offer from the waitlist fast. Once those seats are sold we will only be able to offer more seats in case of cancellations, as we have reached the maximum capacity of the venue.
PostgreSQL Europe stores and processes data, and therefore we had to revisit the processes as the European General Data Protection Regulation came live in May 2018.
Two areas, or services, had to be revisited, in order to be sure that we comply with the regulation.
First we store membership data for every member of PostgreSQL Europe. After carefully looking at the data, we determined that we only store the data which is required to provide this service to our members, and keep them informed - as example about renewing their membership or send information about the General Assembly.
The second, and ...
