PgDay Portland, A huge success!

On July 22nd, PostgreSQL.Org held a single day conference in Portland Oregon preceding OSCON 2007. This conference, although short notice was a huge success. We had solid attendance from new and old community members. Notable talks for me was Theo Schlossnagle's talk on Solaris and PostgreSQL. It was enlightening to see where PostgreSQL is lacking, (places I didn't realize) and how Theo has worked around the problems to provide a quite decent set of tools for Solaris and PostgreSQL. Following PgDay we had the PostgreSQL Party at the Marriot, home of the 5.00 free beer!. The party had excellent turnout (larger than PGDay itself) and lasted longer than I stayed (and I was the host). In all, I look forward to having a even bigger PGDay in Portland next year!
