PostgreSQL Conference Europe is by far the largest PostgreSQL conference in Europe.
A decade of PostgreSQL
This year's conference is the 10th annual PostgreSQL Conference Europe.
The conference is organized by PostgreSQL Europe,
with participation from most of the
PostgreSQL user groups around Europe, and is intended to be an important meeting and
cooperation point for users both in and out of Europe.
PGConf.EU is a unique chance for European PostgreSQL users and developers to catch up,
learn, build relationships, get to know each other and consolidate a real network of
professionals that use and work with PostgreSQL.
The event is moved between major cities in Europe each year, to make it easy for as
many people as possible to come to the conference. We have so far visited these

Great content from to
The conference covers a wide range of topics, as we expect talks ranging from
internals discussions led by leading developers to end-user case-studies from small
companies as well as large multinational corporations and government organizations,
all who run their businesses on PostgreSQL.
The conference will run multiple parallel tracks, covering the different technical levels
to make sure there is always something interesting for everybody.
..and let's not forget the all important hallway track full of caffeine infused discussions
with interesting peers from the community. We also run after hours
social events at which the hallway track lasts all night.
Something for everyone
Given this wide range of talks, the conference is suitable for many different audiences:
DBAs already using PostgreSQL, or considering doing so
Developers of any kind of application, from hobbyists to large web and enterprise
Decision-makers interested in evaluating the world's most advanced open source
database as an alternative to traditional proprietary products
PostgreSQL contributors - code, documentation, support - whatever you help the
Open source enthusiasts in general
Next to the conference, we will also team up with several companies who
offer PostgreSQL training, for a day of discounted short PostgreSQL training sessions. More
info on available sessions can be found on the training page.
