South Africa 2019

PostgresConf South Africa 2019

The third annual South African PostgresConf takes place in Johannesburg on 8 & 9 October 2019, 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

Open Source Week brings 3 conferences together in the same week, with PostgresConf South Africa 2019 taking place the day after LinuxConf [ZA] 2019 and before PyConZA 2019, the Python programming conference and a shared workshop/tutorial day on the Wednesday, with all three conferences hosted at the same venue.

Call for speakers

The call for speakers will be open in the next few weeks. Anyone can submit a talk - we're looking for talks on PostgreSQL features, usecases where people use PostgreSQL in an interesting way, if you've written a tool that works with or uses PostgreSQL, or just about anything to do with PostgreSQL. We're also wanting to run more full-day and half-day workshops/tutorials this year, so if you have an idea for one, please consider submitting it.
