East 09: Call for papers!

PostgreSQL Conference, U.S., East 09 will be held in Philadelphia at historic Drexel University from April 3rd through 5th. The call for papers is now out.

As always we let our submissions define our actual tracks. If you have something you want to talk about it. Submit it. As long as it is about PostgreSQL (or doing something with PostgreSQL) we will consider it.

We are seeking creative ideas about things we can do at the conference. At West we had a code sprint. The sprint was very successful as it was about all things postgresql and open source. It wasn't just hacking back end code but people worked on all kinds of things.. Is someone up for running a code sprint?

There has also been specific interest in having us add (in addition to our advanced topics) a newbie track. Please do not be afraid to submit a talks on items such as:

  • Backing up PostgreSQL
  • Understanding and Configuring Autovacuum
  • Normalization
  • Trigger Happy (how to use triggers ;)
  • PITR -- happiness is a shipped transaction log
  • Other topics we are interested in beyond the standard PostgreSQL architectural fanfare are:

  • Groovy/Grails
  • Django
  • PHP
  • Pylons
  • SQL Alchemy
  • So don't delay, PostgreSQL Conference, U.S. is the premeire PostgreSQL conference series for the United States PostgreSQL community! Submit your talk today.
