Two talks at MySQL Conf done! Slides…

Just finished my last talk. Slides are downloadable here, and also embedded after the break.

MySQL Conf – Managing Terabytes

Own it: Working with a changing open source community

The floor show is closed, so no more booth work tomorrow. I’ve had a great time here talking with people and seeing my colleagues in the PostgreSQL and MySQL community.

Looking forward to getting some hacking time in tomorrow and enjoying an evening connecting with people instead of working on slides. 🙂

At MySQL Conference: Day 1 preview

Today is the first day of regular sessions at MySQL Users Conference.

I’m particularly excited this year because we have 12 PostgreSQL talks, including a Plenary talk at 9:40am this morning about the state of PostgreSQL.

Today’s talks include Building Data Warehouses, An Introduction to PostGIS, Securing PostgreSQL from external attack, and Introduction to PostgreSQL configuration.

MySQL Users Conference is the largest open source database conference in the world. When so many changes are occurring inside the MySQL database community, our presence is critically important. Particularly that we have Bruce Momjian, Robert Haas, Jeff Davis, Josh Berkus and many others here. Thank you to everyone that’s contributing to the booth, the talks and engaging in conversations here.

We’re also having a PostgreSQL BoF this evening, in Ballroom B at 7pm! Please stop by.

Getting ready for the first PostgreSQL track at MySQL Users Conference!

Back in February, I blogged about all the sessions related to PostgreSQL at MySQL Users Conference this year.

My stickers just arrived:

Stop by the PostgreSQL booth during the MySQL Expo, or come to one of my talks if you’d like one.

I’m giving two – one is about Emma’s database systems and the problems with scaling huge schemas. And the other is a community talk about managing competing business and community interests inside of the Postgres community, and lessons that other open source communities can learn from our successes and failures.

We’re having a free Birds of a Feather session Tuesday, April 12 at 7pm at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Please stop by!

PostgreSQL at MySQL Users Conference: the sessions!

You’ve probably seen a few posts about this – from the CFP, to Baron’s recent pointer to the release of the schedule. And now Josh Berkus just posted a Meetup for the event, so that spurred me on for this post…

So, just to make things even easier for you, I thought I’d summarize the awesome talks we’re having at the O’Reilly MySQL Users Conference this year related to PostgreSQL.

We’re also having a Birds of a Feather session, and staffing a booth on the exhibit floor!
