The first PGConf in South Africa will take place in Cape Town on 3 October 2017! This is an opportunity for the developer community who use Postgres to get to know each other, exchange ideas and get training. Jim Mlodgenski will be our keynote speaker for the event.

If you have questions send an email to

The event will be at the riverclub and includes tea and coffee and a lunch.

We are using the US platform which means the tickets are sold in USD, hopefully from next year (or later this year) we'll be able to do it in ZAR directly.

PgConf US is thankful for support from our sponsors
