A meeting of the interested PostgreSQL developers is being planned for Tuesday 28 May, 2019 at the University of Ottawa, prior to pgCon 2019. In order to keep the numbers manageable, this meeting is by invitation only.

The invitation list for the meeting has changed this year to include representatives from various project sub-teams, for example, packagers, the release team, Code of Conduct committee and more.

As at last years event, an Unconference will be held on Wednesday for in-depth discussion of technical topics.

This is a PostgreSQL Community event.
