The easy but harder than I thought road to PostgreSQL Conference Fall 2007

The PostgreSQL Conference Fall 2007 has given me a knew appreciation for the little things. If it wasn't for PDXPUG leader Selena Deckelmann the conference would not have the complimentary breakfast/social nor would it have the synopsis of the talks on the conference website. The hard work of Selena, myself and the speakers appears to be paying off. We have a strong list of sponsors as well as a very strong list of speakers. See for yourself:
