Postgres folks, consider the 2011 MySQL conference

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.

I'm Baron Schwartz, the founder and CEO of VividCortex. I am the author of High Performance MySQL and lots of open-source software for performance analysis, monitoring, and system administration. I contribute to various database communities such as Oracle, PostgreSQL, Redis and MongoDB. More about me.
