(I’ll be missing Friday’s tutorials.)
9am: Jeff Davis: PostgreSQL, Extensible to the Nth Degree. Jeff’s talks usually melt my brain, and I like that.
10:15: Conference Keynote.
11:30am: Mark Wong: pg_proctab. Turns out I’m giving this talk with Mark, even though my name’s not on the schedule. I should probably show up.
1:45pm: Scott Bailey: Temporal Data or Magnus Hagander: Secure PostgreSQL Deployment. There will be a coin toss.
3:00pm: Kevin Kempter: Backup and Recovery. There’s always something else to learn about this topic.
4:00pm: Bill Karwin: Practical Full-text Search.
9:00am: Aaron Sheldon: XML Data Warehousing.
10:15am: David Fetter: Lists and Recursion and Trees (Oh, My!) I want to learn about Windowing functions, new with 8.4
11:15am: Matt Smiley: Basic Query Tuning Primer. Another topic I could stand to learn more about.
1:30pm: Tossup between David Wheeler: pgTAP Unit Testing Best Practices and Josh Berkus: 5 Steps to PostgreSQL Performance. I’ll probably go to Berkus’s talk because Wheeler is a sport about repeating his talks for PDXPUG.
Other fun stuff:
The Hacker lounge will be open for two days of geekery: 7:30 am – 4:30pm Saturday, and 9-4 on Sunday.
EnterpriseDB has stepped up to provide entertainment after the Saturday sessions.
I haven’t heard if there are Lightning Talks, but I have a couple of ideas for one. You should too.
See you there!
