I was asked by my friends in the PostgreSQL community to mention this here. If you're using PostgreSQL with your Ruby on Rails applications, they're hoping to get some of us from the Rails community involved at PGCon.
PGCon 2008 will be held 22-23 May 2008, in Ottawa at the University of Ottawa. It will be preceded by two days of tutorials on 20-21 May 2008.
We are now requesting proposals for presentations.
If you are doing something interesting with PostgreSQL, please submit a proposal. You might be one of the backend hackers or work on a PostgreSQL related project and want to share your know-how with others. You might be developing an interesting system using PostgreSQL as the foundation. Perhaps you migrated from another database to PostgreSQL and would like to share details. These, and other stories are welcome. Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
Here are a few ideas to jump start your proposal process:
- novel, unique or complex ways in which PostgreSQL are used - migration of production systems to PostgreSQL - data warehousing with PostgreSQL - tuning PostgreSQL for different work loads - replicating data on top of PostgreSQL
Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
The schedule is:
19 Dec 2007 Proposal acceptance begins 19 Jan 2008 Proposal acceptance ends 19 Feb 2008 Confirmation of accepted proposals 19 Apr 2008 Final papers/slides must arrive no later than this date
