After the success of last year’s event, the second PGDay held in Australia, we’re back this year with PGDay Down Under. The name “Down Under” refers to Australia and New Zealand, due to the fact these countries are located in the lower latitudes of the southern hemisphere.
The conference is a one-day community event organized by the newborn PostgreSQL Down Under Incorporated (also known as PGDU), a not-for-profit association established to support the growth and learning of PostgreSQL, the world’s most advanced open source database, in Australia and New Zealand.
PGDay Down Under aims to satisfy a large audience of PostgreSQL users and enthusiasts by selecting a wide range of talks and presentations that are of interest to:
- Database administrators that are already using PostgreSQL, or use a different database and are interested in learning about PostgreSQL
- Team leaders, architects and decision makers considering PostgreSQL as an alternative database to more traditional proprietary databases
- Developers that have data persistence requirements or are just wanting to expand their knowledge
- IT enthusiasts who enjoy getting involved in the open source community
Don’t wait until last minute, early bird tickets are now available, you can register for PGDay Down Under here. To complete the registration log in with your community account or preferred third party platform.
The Call for Papers is open until October 21, at midnight (AEDT). We have already received many submissions and we hope to get some more. To submit your proposal for a presentation please visit 2018.pgdu.org and click on Call For Papers on the top right corner.
This event would not be possible without the generous sponsorship and support from many different organisations, such as 2ndQuadrant. Any proceeds from the conference will be used to organize more community events in other locations, creating a virtuous cycle to better support the growth of the PostgreSQL community in the region.
