The Open Source community is ever thriving in Nepal. The Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community, for example, has established itself as a very active community with its strong stake in educational institutions, the private sector, the government, the non-governmental institutions etc. A considerable population in Nepal promote and use open source software. A recent survey conducted in the Social Media with regards to the users of PostgreSQL revealed that there is growing use and interest in the software companies of Nepal.
The PGConf2018 conference in Nepal is expected to bring all the open source software enthusiasts and PostgreSQL users from Nepal and abroad together at one place, and serve as a major event for creating awareness and further promote the open source culture in Nepal. Furthermore, it will also open up Nepal to the international PostgreSQL community.
