Postgres folks, consider the 2011 MySQL conferenceWed, Sep 29, 2010 in Conferences Databases
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.
