I’d like to encourage everyone in the Postgres world to submit session proposals to the 2011 O’Reilly MySQL conference. It’ll be a different event this year. We’re looking for a breadth as well as a depth of proposals on technologies beyond MySQL, and in the speaker selection committee conference calls, PostgreSQL was on the top of the list. I am on the committee. Your high-quality submissions will get a fair and unbiased vote from me, and I think I can speak for the rest of the committee too. There are no ideologues this year. Postgres is a great open-source database that deserves to be heard in this audience, where it’s been absent the last couple of years. This is a great conference for Postgres to have a significant showing.
Some people seem unclear about whether there will be a 2011 MySQL conference from O’Reilly. There most definitely will be, and the CfP is open. We are looking for speakers. I’m on the speaker selection committee again this year for the Nth time, and my advice from past years still stands. This year we’re also looking for a greater diversity of database products, including other relational databases, NoSQL databases, and ancillary technologies.
O’Reilly’s official website announces that they are planning a MySQL conference in 2010 (same time, same place). Unlike past years, it isn’t co-presented with Sun/MySQL; they are flying solo. The theme is Information Unleashed.
