We were lucky enough to host PGConf Philly 2018, the third year we've hosted the conference for PostgreSQL at The Wharton School. The event brought PostgreSQL enthusiasts from the east coast together for an afternoon of learning, sharing, and fun. Jim Mlodgenski started the event showing some trends in PostgreSQL growth; Philadelphia is the third largest local PG group, behind only New York and San Francisco. Yes, we're bigger than Chicago, Seattle, and Austin!
Most of us have had the experience of loving a CMS at first, but souring over time, as the limitations and shortcomings come to light.

What if something better could be built, which would withstand the test of time, and still be loved after years?
