PostgreSQL Developer Meeting 2024
The PostgreSQL Developer Meeting will be held co-located with
FOSDEM PGDay 2024 on Thursday 2024-02-01, the day before
the main conference.
The PostgreSQL Developer Meeting is an invite-only summit for
PostgreSQL developers to meet and get a chance to discuss wicked
problems, development processes and other topics. It is by invitation
only to keep the group focused, and because the room has limited
capacity. PostgreSQL Europe
is sponsoring the event making it free to attend.
The meeting is entirely independent of FOSDEM PGDay and FOSDEM
and registration for FOSDEM PGDay is not required to attend the
meeting. The same CoC
as for FOSDEM PGDay applies to the meeting.
Time and Place
The meeting will take place at Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place on Thursday
2024-02-01 starting at 9AM and concluding at 5PM. More information
on booking accommodation and how to get to the venue can be found
on the here. There is a discounted
room rate which is available to developer meeting attendees as well.
Lunch will be provided, as well as coffee and snacks.

The agenda for the meeting is created by the attendees, to reflect
the needs and wants of the group. While the discussion is free to
take follow tangents and side-tracks as long as it's constructive
and creative, there will be a set of topics to keep us somewhat
focused on what is top of mind.
Suggested topics so far are:
- v17 Patch Triage
- Moving Forward with Pending Patches
- Recognizing New Contributors
- What's new in SQL:2023
- Binary format output per session
- Meson and packaging
- Built-in collation provider for "C" and "C.UTF-8"
- CREATE SUBSCRIPTION ... SERVER
- The Path to un-reverting the MAINTAIN privilege
- A systematic approach to pruning support for old/EOL libraries
To suggest a topic, reply to the invitation email with your idea.
Once there are a set of
topics suggested I will start to set up an agenda here. There is
no requirement to make a presentation, but if you plan to use any
visual means then please indicate that for planning purposes.
