What is Citus Con?

Citus Con: An Event for Postgres is a free and virtual developer event organized by the Postgres team at Microsoft Azure. Join us to hear from open source users, Azure database customers, and experts in PostgreSQL and Citus about how they use Postgres. With livestream talks in 3 geographies, plus on-demand talks too, Citus Con is a global event designed to be useful and delightful. Come learn what you can do with the world’s most advanced open source relational database—from the nerdy to the sublime.

Live sessions

With 3-hour livestreams in 3 different geographies, you can select a time that works for you. Talks will be given by Azure customers, Citus open source users, Postgres and Citus experts from Microsoft, and Postgres community members.

  • Americas—Apr 12, 2022 | 9am–12pm PT (UTC-7)
  • APAC—Apr 13, 2022 | 11am–2pm SGT (UTC+8)
  • EMEA—Apr 13, 2022 | 11am–2pm CEST (UTC+2)

On-demand videos

A group of select Postgres and Citus talks will be pre-recorded and published as on-demand videos on our Microsoft Developer YouTube channel, on the first day of the event.

Why are some of the videos available as on-demand? Because we can’t fit all the talks into the 3-hour livestreams. Plus, with on-demand, you have the flexibility to watch your way: pause, rewind, speed up, slow down. It’s up to you.

Call for Speakers

Every great event starts with great speakers—and the learnings you want to share.

Whether you’re a first-time speaker or a regular on the conference circuit, we’d love to consider your talk proposal(s) about Postgres and/or Citus. To make things easy, we’ll take care of the video recording and production, for both livestream and on-demand talks. And you can present remotely with your favorite cup of tea. Questions?
