I create, run and participate in a lot of technical conferences. My focus is on open source, and in particular PostgreSQL.

I write frequently about the conferences I attend, and try to categorize that stuff under “conference“.

Conferences I’ve started:

  • Postgres Open: a conference focusing on the business of PostgreSQL and disruption of the database industry
  • Open Source Bridge: My first blog post about Open Source Bridge.
  • PostgreSQL Conference: first of three conferences I organized before ending my involvement with the series.
