Just wanted to make sure one more time, that all my friends in Chicago remember about the 2Q PG Conf, which will take place in Chicago on November 9.
I’ve already mentioned earlier, that I will be presenting at this conference, but now the whole schedule is published, and you can see, that all the speakers are just extraordinary!
Hope you can attend!

Attention fellow chicagoans! Do you want to learn more about PG Open 2017 straight from the participants? Come to Chicago PUG meetup on September 12!
Here is a https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-PostgreSQL-User-Group/events/242081721/link to the meetup – please RSVP there.
Usually I start to write about any conference I am attending while still at the conference. But this time around I had such a busy time, there were so many things going on, that I didn’t… and even now, two days after the conference, I am not sure where to start 🙂
Overall the conference was great. The weather in San Francisco was beautiful, the hotel was great except of the usual “too-much-air-conditioning” .
This time I didn’t sign up for any of the tutorials. so the day I came, I just met several people (which is always the goal at a conference in any case), and we also had the speakers dinner (a very nice one!).
Hey fellow Postgres enthusiasts, especially a Chicago bunch! A friendly reminder, that today is a deadline for the 2Q PGCONF talks submission. If you didn’t submit anything, there is still time, just 1-2 paragraphs highlighting the main idea of the talk will be sufficient. Let’s show that Chicago CAN!

It is my pleasure to advertise an event, which will be happening in Chicago in November: 2Q PGCONF 2017.
This conference is organized by the 2ndQuadrant, and it will be held in two locations: New York Nov 7-8 and Chicago Nov 9. Participants can register and/or submit their talks for each of the locations separately.
If you ask me, I think that a one-day conference is great thing. It’s much more doable, then several days conference, and your manager is way more likely to agree to you being one day away from work, than several :). This being said…
– Please consider participation (please register on the web site)
– Please consider submitting a talk (the deadline in Aug 22!)
– Please help us to find sponsors!
I have just one thing to say – it was a great meetup! I was worried, that the even was scheduled not for the best day: it’s the end of July, when people are either heading to vacation, or at least just trying to spend as much time outdoors, as possible. Besides, for some reason nobody likes to meet on Thursdays.
In spite all of the above – the attendance was great, and the audience was really engaged. Do I need to mention that Bruce is the greatest speaker in the Postgres world?!
The presentation was brilliant, over an hour just passed by, and nobody even asked whether we can have a break 🙂
And now I really hope this won’t be the last time Bruce is visiting Chicago and talking at PUG!

Attention Chicago Postgres users, developers, DBAs and everybody who knows what the word “Postgres” means! In the unlikely event you did not hear about it already – this day is coming! Bruce Momjian will be our guest at the July meeting of the Chicago PostgreSQL User Group, and I do not think I need to say anything else! We are just excited that this is finally happening!
Please RSVP, if you are planning to come, and didn’t RSVP yet – we have a new person at the building reception, and I need to give her a guest list! Also, just for this meetup we will extend the time till 9 PM, so that everybody could enjoy the conversation.
Hope to see you there!
