2017 General Assembly - Activities report

What has been done


See the Financial report, section "Activities".


2016 saw a good number of events which were either organized by, or with the support from, PostgreSQL Europe, though no PGConf.DE this year. In total, we had 682 registered attendees at this year's events which we are very happy about.


The fourth annual one-track PGDay just before FOSDEM again is now a successful and well established event with 102 attendees. During FOSDEM, we had lots of interest at our booth and all talks in our devroom ended up completely full with far from everyone who wanted to attend being able to get in.

Nordic PGDay

The third iteration of Nordic PGDay followed the same concept as the two previous years, a single-day single-track conference. This year, it was held in Helsinki, Finland, with 93 attendees and 7 talks.

pgDay Paris

The Paris usergroup organizers decided to run a PGDay in Paris supported by PostgreSQL Europe. The conference followed the well proven one-day one-track model and attracted 74 attendees.


For the third year in a row, PGConf.EU broke its attendance record, this year with a wide margin. The conference, which was held in Tallin, Estonia, had 413 attendees. The event was a success with overwhelmingly positive feedback.

Other events

We were part of some other events. We sponsored the PostgreSQL booth at HighLoad++. We also sent them some merchandise. We sent merchandise to some PostgreSQL meetups.

We sponsored the PostgreSQL magazine. We also gave some at PGConf.EU 2016, and gave some for a french meetup.

Upcoming events

FOSDEM/PGDay will as last year be held in Brussels at the beginning of February. Registration is open and the schedule for both our devroom and PGDay has been published.

Nordic PGDay continues to visit the major cities in the nordic region and will this year be held in Stockholm, Sweden, on March 21. Registration will open shortly. CfP is already opened.

PGDay.Paris is back again, and its CfP is open.

PGConf.EU will of course come back again, in Warsaw (Poland). We're still working on the details. More informations will come later.

As always, we invite our members who are interested in working on a regional PGDay to contact us if we can be of any assistance at all, whether just in answering questions, or through organisational or financial aid. More information can be found at https://www.postgresql.eu/events/.
