Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the deadline for proposals for the PostgreSQL Anniversary Summit is less than 5 days away. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, check out the [http://conference.postgresql.org/ conference registration site]. Also I wanted to say that, if you are feeling intimidated about submitting because you are just Joe User, please don’t be. Some of the most popular talks among the PostgreSQL developers have been case studies that show off how PostgreSQL has played a critical role in your business. [http://techdocs.postgresql.org/oscon2005/aaron.thul/pg_built_your_car.pdf Aaron Thule’s talk from OSCON 2005] comes to mind here. And on a final note, I’d like to make a request for a few specific talks I have heard about but not seen, including the following ideas from [http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/2332 Jonah Harris]; Debugging PL/pgSQL, Writing Lightning-Fast Stored Procedures in PL/pgSQL, Building an Open Source Software Business, Building an Open Source Consulting Business. I’d also like to see [http://www.slony2.org/slony2_opendbcon.pdf Gavin’s talk on Slony II]. Anyone else have some specific talks they want to see? Hmm… thinking about that, one final final note; if you want to see one of my talks please drop me a line. I’ll be involved in the PostgreSQL Web Developers Discussion/Sessions or whatever that turns out to be, but I’ve no specific plans to outside of that.
