The second South African PostgresConf will take 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 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.

PostgresConf South Africa 2018 takes place the day after LinuxConf [ZA] 2018 and before PyConZA, the Python programming conference, with all three conferences hosted at the same venue.

We are now accepting talk submissions and tickets will be available for sale soon.
