The PGCon 2010 Schedule is now available:
For the fourth year in a row, PGCon continues to be the conference for the worldwide PostgreSQL community. If you want to advance your knowledge of PostgreSQL internals, scale your database application, contribute to the project, or just rub elbows with the core team, major contributors, and committers from around the world, PGCon is the place to be.
PGCon 2010 will be held on 20-21 May 2010 at University of Ottawa, with two days of Tutorials on 18-19 May 2010.
You can read the official announcement here.
We received a huge increase in submissions this year. We were close to adding a third day of talks, and considered it at length, but decided to retain the originally announced format. Why? We announced the dates and times for PGCon nearly 10 months ago. People have made plans, arranged travel, booked hotels. We didn’t want to disrupt those plans. To date, we’ve had attendees from over 50 different countries. People come from all over the world, including:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
For what it’s worth, we get nearly as many people from USA as from Canada. Clearly, PGCon is worth the trip to many people
Without doubt, we had enough high-caliber talks to support a third day. To those speakers, we apologize and encourage you to submit again for 2011.
The PGCon 2010 schedule program includes:
