Nordic PGDay Our story
Nordic PGDay was started in 2014 in order to bring the PostgreSQL community in the Nordic region together. The idea was to create a single track conference with a focus on high quality talks in nice environments and with great hallway tracks.
The conference is arranged in a different major city in the region each year. The 2016 conference in Helsinki, Finland, will be our third annual Nordic PGDay and we are very much looking forward to meeting you all there for a fun and informative day.
We would like to thank PostgreSQL Europe and our past, as well as current, sponsors for supporting not only Nordic PGDay but the Nordic PostgreSQL community. We would also like to thank all volunteers who have helped us to make the conferences possible.
Nordic PGDay is financially supported by our generous sponsors and is economically underwritten by PostgreSQL Europe, the european PostgreSQL umbrella organisation for usergroups. The financial record of the conference is publicly available in the PostgreSQL Europe general assembly financial reports. Any proceeds from the conference automatically belongs to PostgreSQL Europe in order to support the wider European PostgreSQL community.
No Nordic PGDay staff receieves payment for their work except for free attendance.
