Henrietta Dombrovskaya: PGSQL Phriday #014: Postgres Events!
For this PGSQL Phriday, Pavlo Golub has chosen the topic “POSTGRESQL EVENTS” What a topic! Do you know how many things I can say about Postgres events? A lot! Last spring, I published the blog post “Complete History of PG Day Chicago”, which included the story of my involvement with the Chicago PostgreSQLUser Group. In December 2016, seven years ago, when I became a Chicago PUG local organizer, my goal was to prove that Chicago could host a conference, but I realized very soon that the User Group was vital for the Postgres community regardless. Like no other community, the Postgres community needs live interactions, and I can’t recall anybody more unhappy than frequent conference speakers at the time of the pandemic. One time, I will give a talk, “How we survived the pandemic,” but today, all my thoughts are directed to the second PG Day Chicago, which will take place on April 26, 2024. If you are coming to PG Conf EU, which starts in just ten days, you will have a chance to listen to the talk that I will give together with Teresa Giacomini: So you want a PG day in your city, where we will share our many “lessons learned”. For now, I just want to repost my Complete History of PG Day Chicago (because nobody clicks on the links!) I felt compelled to write a blog explaining why I am so excited for PG Day Chicago finally being a reality, not just my dream. Many people heard at least some parts of this story, but it’s the first time I am presenting the whole timeline. I started working with PostgreSQL in July 2011, and shortly after, I attended the first Postgres conference, PG Open, which was back then happening in Chicago and was a three-day event with huge attendance! Before that, I only attended academic conferences, and that one looked very different. Needless to say, in addition to its novelty, I felt completely stupid because I barely understood what it was all about. I had enough courage to ask somebody (maybe even Magnus) whether they plan to have subtransactions inside functions :)[...]
