What a great event – PGDay Amsterdam

PostgreSQL conferences are always cool and this time it was in Amsterdam: PGDay Amsterdam. Beside that meeting all the great people was fun again the location was really outstanding: The TOBACCO Theater:

Some impressions:

Here you can see Devrim preparing the opening of the event with the introduction session:

Jan kicked of the sessions with his talk about the reasons he finally arrived in the PostgreSQL community after working years in another one:

Oleksi took over to speak about ACID, transactions and much more, a great talk:

I had the pleasure to speak about PostgreSQL 11 to close the first sessions before the coffee break:

Selection_002

Stefanie followed with foreign data wrappers and data integration with PostgreSQL (another great one):

Selection_005

And then there was something special: You might know Devrim has a real PostgreSQL tattoo and that was taken as an opportunity to offer temporary tattoos to everyone and that looked like this:

As in Rapperswil two weeks ago Bruce closed the sessions with his talk: Will PostgreSQL live forever:

There have been other session not mentioned here, which also have been great, but I didn’t ask if it as fine to publish the pictures. I could not attend the party after the event but I am sure that was great as well. See you next year. And never forget: PostgreSQL rocks :).
