Call for Lightning Talks now open!

July 9th we closed our CfP (Call for Papers), and while we still have your attention we wanted to open our Call for Lightning Talks (CfLT) right away. Lightning talks are a fun but tricky format to get right. Telling a story in no more than 5 minutes is no small feat, but when done right they're a great way to get the hallway discussion going!

Here's how you submit your lightning talk idea(s): please send us a title, and a short, 2-3 sentences abstract for what you will want to talk about, as well as your full name. You can send us maximum 2 talk proposals. The email address is

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Submitting a talk you have prepared for 45 minutes and just talking really fast isn't going to result in a great experience for you or the audience
  • We're open to talk proposals that are a little "out there", not necessarily tightly coupled to PostgreSQL
  • We are going to need your slides a day in advance (September 12, at noon) so that we can ensure a smooth transition between speakers

The CfLT will be open until midnight August 10, Amsterdam-time.

We look forward to your ideas!
