Using PostgreSQL with Rails? - PGCon 2008 - call for papers

Hey all!

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. :slight_smile:

Details follow..

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
