PostgresOpen is coming up in less than a month and we've got an exciting time planned. We're kicking off with tutorials on September 5th, followed by two days of talks ranging from talks by Postgres end users to committers talking about the latest and greatest performance advancements. This year the conference is again held in downtown San Francisco, make it easy to get to your hotel via quick Bart ride from the airport without ever needing to grab a car.

Many of you are already registered for the conference and all set, but for you stragglers out there you still hvae some time to get your tickets and reserve your hotel room. You'll want to make sure to grab you hotel room this week as the hotel block will run out by next week so make sure to secure your room so you can be right by all the conference activities.

You can get your room at the conference rate at: https://book.passkey.com/event/49526018/owner/1150/home

If you're already set on your conference ticket and hotel room there is still one other think you may want to consider: The tutorials. On Wednesday we'll be hosting six tutorials to help you get some hands on deep dive experience with various Postgres topics. This year our tutorials include:

Note: You do need to register for tutorials in advance of the conference and cannot drop in day of, so please make sure to grab your registration now.

We are getting into swing with all things PostgresOpen SV 2018, the U.S. PostgreSQL Community Conference, running September 5-7 2018 in lovely downtown San Francisco.

The Call For Papers for PostgresOpen SV 2018 is open, but closing soon!

The PostgresOpen committee is especially excited to help support first time speakers or speakers from under-represented groups within technology. We strongly encourage those individuals to submit talks. As part of that effort we'll be providing mentoring for any speakers that desire it if your talk is accepted. Don't let prior experience speaking hold you back as we'd love to have you submit a talk.

If you are working with PostgreSQL, please go here and submit a talk!

Our Call For Sponsors is open! We have many levels available for all companies to be able to sponsor, please review our prospectus and reach out to us about how you can sponsor.

The 2018 PostgresOpen SV Committee looks forward to bringing the best PostgreSQL presentations and tutorials from speakers around the world to San Francisco and to connect PostgreSQL users, DBAs, executives, developers, engineers, and our sponsors together!

PostgresOpen would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and we extend a special thanks to them:

Keep an eye on https://2018.postgresopen.org/sponsors/ for updates.

PostgresOpen is an Associated Project of the United States PostgreSQL Assocation (PgUS)! Without PgUS, we would not be able to run these conferences each year, nor support the many PUGs around the country, so please visit https://postgresql.us and consider becoming a member to help promote the growth and education of PostgreSQL in the US!

Speakers will be notified by June 19th, 2018, with the schedule to be published once selected speakers have confirmed.
