PgEast... over and an exciting announcement from the .Org infrastructure team

So PgEast is over. You wouldn't know it yet by looking at the website, but it is. We maxed out at ~ 160 people. That is an almost 2x increase over last year at East. It is also a significant increase over West last October. This is an exciting time for this conference series.

The trainings were also successful, I had 19 (of a max 20) show for my Performance and Maintenance class, and I know the other classes had similar attendance.

Due to the success of East, we are going to be moving West to a hotel as well. There was overwhelming support for not returning to a college. Although most were supportive of the reason we used colleges in the past, they were also firm in their belief that further growth of the conferences will require a step up into the professional realm. That means a hotel.

There was also an exciting infrastructure announcement from the .Org sysadmin team. Core team member, Dave Page announced in his talk that .Org will be moving from FreeBSD and jails to Debian Linux and virtualization. This is a long time needed change and I am very glad to be part of the team that will be assisting in this move. I believe that this change will help us entice more people to be part of the sysadmins team and allow for a more diversified and flexible infrastructure.

I called the our hotel representative today because I was confused about why we had a deadline of 03/11 on the room discount. I was trying to push them to extend the date because we had met our room quota and I was wondering why they were trying to shut down the discount. Apparently, not only have we met our room quota, but the hotel is reaching capacity!

If you have not booked your hotel room for PostgreSQL Conference East 2010, now is definitely the time! If you do not book soon, you will be staying at another hotel (of course, you are still welcome to the conference).

    As we continue the countdown to the largest community and user conference in PostgreSQL history I am reminded of all the great content we have had in the past. Today while I was reviewing the curriculum for the PostgreSQL Performance and Maintenance class, I came across this great talk by Bruce Momjian as a further example of the high quality information you will receive not only from the various trainings but also all the other (over 50!) sessions at PostgreSQL Conference East!

    As we inch closer to PostgreSQL Conference East, I have been reviewing some of the great talks given at PostgreSQL Conference West. One of those talks was Josh Berkus's great, "5 Steps to PostgreSQL Performance". Here it is below:

    If you would like to see more great talks on PostgreSQL, make sure and visit the website... and perhaps even attend PostgreSQL Conference East.
