PostgreSQL Community

For over 20 years, the PostgreSQL Community has worked to organize conferences with many technical and business talks by developers and key users globally. PGDay Chicago is a conference series of the United States PostgreSQL Association (PGUS), which is a non profit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the development of PostgreSQL in the United States. Any profits from the event go to PgUS (an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit) to fund future PgUS events and support the PgUS mission.


PGDay Chicago is committed to providing an environmentally friendly conference experience, involving an organized approach to introducing sustainable materials and processes throughout the conference. 2023 is the first year of PGDay Chicago's sustainable approach, and we are working on making small, manageable changes in order to move on to more widespread and effective permanent changes to how our conference is managed. Our goal is to contribute in a meaningful way towards a greener and more sustainable future.
