My Picks for Postgres Open 2012

by gorthx

The schedule for Postgres Open is out!

Here are the talks I’m planning on attending:
Tuesday:
Range Types in PostgreSQL 9.2 (Jonathan S Katz)

Large Scale MySQL Migration to PostgreSQL (Dimitri Fontaine) because I love case studies

12 Calm Years of PostgreSQL in Critical Messaging (John Scott) another case study

This is PostGIS (Paul Ramsey) <– 'nuff said

If I wasn't giving a talk at the same time, I’d be going to High Availability with PostgreSQL and Pacemaker (Sean M. Thomas)

Of course, I will be attending the Lightning Talks!

Wednesday:
Super Jumbo Deluxe (Josh Berkus)

For the next few sessions, I’ll require a coin toss to decide between:
Deploying Maximum HA (Denish Patel)
and
Scaling Postgres with some help from Redis (Josiah Carlson)

…and:
Query Logging and Workload Analysis (Greg Smith)
and
DVDStore Benchmark (Jignesh Shah)

The penultimate session is going to be tough to choose. Today I am leaning toward A Batch of Commit Batching (Paul Geoghegan)

To wrap it up, I want to hear about PG Extractor – A Smarter pg_dump (Keith Fiske)

I’m looking forward to the hallway track & meeting old & new friends. This was a really good conference last year & it’s not too late to register. Hope to see you there!
