An invitation to PostgreSQL community membersSat, Feb 21, 2009 in Conferences Databases
I’m not sure this has been publicized much in the PostgreSQL world yet, but the Percona Performance Conference is not a MySQL-centric event. We’re hoping for good sessions on PostgreSQL and lots of other topics. So this is an invitation – come attend, and submit sessions.
A few words about marketing. The event is free, and even though it’s stamped with Percona’s name and under Percona’s control, it is a technical event. If you want to present, you will be welcome to bring some marketing materials for your company. We’ll have something like a table for pamphlets and books. If you would like to present on a commercial product, it’s fine; and it’s okay to mention what you do or what your company does – we’re not trying to cramp anyone, but we’re looking for technical sessions. We’ll be doing the same thing. We’re renting a booth in the expo hall to do marketing.
We hope this will be an opportunity to get together and learn and teach; there isn’t really a PostgreSQL event on the west coast until later this year. I’ve made phone calls and sent emails to a lot of my PostgreSQL friends, but I’m sure I’m missing someone – I just went through my business card collection. Spread the word!
