I just returned from PGDay NYC. The conference had an intensity that I have not seen in other conferences
recently. Last year’s PGDay NYC conference was in a large facility and felt dominated by people considering Postgres for serious
deployments. This year’s event was in underground adjacent rooms, and the crowd seemed completely sold on Postgres. The compactness of
the venue and the enthusiasm of the crowd made for a unique energy. One of the rooms even had couches and cushioned chairs — I don’t
think I have ever listened to a technical presentation from a couch — hard to beat.
The event was attended by four core team members and distant speakers like Joshua Drake, David Fetter, and Will Leinweber. Will’s
presentation was particularly exciting for me and I will be blogging about it soon.
