pgCon 2016 User Unconference Day

The PostgreSQL Community is having our third User Unconference Day at pgCon 2016 in Ottawa! This event, extends pgCon and gives us additional opportunities to share, collaborate, and discuss about PostgreSQL development, hacking, usage, and community.

For more about unconference days and why we're doing this, see the Unconference Day FAQ.

If you are interested in holding a session, or you want someone else to do a session on a particular topic on the Unconference day, please add your proposal to "session ideas" below.

User vs. Developer Unconference

This year, for the first time, we will be having a User Unconference and a Developer Unconference. The Developer Unconference will be on Wednesday, and its topics will be restricted to ones around contributing to PostgreSQL and major features currently under development.

This page is for the User Unconference, which is on Saturday, and can include topics from any attendee at pgCon. While some of the topics will be about current PostgreSQL development, we also encourage you to bring late-release PostgreSQL related technology which emerged too late for the pgCon CFP. Or even discussion sessions about the community and other issues.

Pictures/Figures/Diagrams in documentation

Proposed By: Ilya Kosmodemiansky

Session Leader: Ilya Kosmodemiansky


There are no pictures in PostgreSQL documentation, which looks a bit ridiculous today. Recently the topic was raised again by Tatsuo Ishii [1] and discussion demonstrates that it is quite important. I suggest to discuss, what kind of pictures we would like to have (user feedback needed) and possible technical implementation.
