PostgresConf South Africa 2018
The second South African PostgresConf takes place in Johannesburg on 9 October 2018, with attendees representing a diverse class of professionals and companies from around the country and across the continent. This is an excellent opportunity for the database administration and developer community who use PostgreSQL to get to know each other, exchange ideas and learn about the current features and upcoming trends within PostgreSQL.

Open Source Week is a first for South Africa with PostgresConf South Africa 2018 taking place the day after LinuxConf [ZA] 2018 and before PyConZA, the Python programming conference, with all three conferences hosted at the same venue.
