It's that time, after a wildly successful conference last October in Portland, Oregon we are now beginning to ramp up for the East Coast 08 conference! The current plan is to host a two day conference of Tutorials (new) and Talks on March 28th and 29th. The currently designated location for the conference is the Univserity of Maryland. This will be confirmed within two weeks.
For now, we are making a call out to the community, it was the hands of the community that made the October conference great. It will be the hands of the community that makes the March conference great!
We have already had a couple of offers for help which we are grateful for but we want to make sure that we open this up for anyone who may want to help organize the conference. Of specific interest are community members that are geographically close to the Maryland area. We will need boots on the ground to help us follow up with others (such as student unions etc..) to make sure we kick this conference off without a hitch.
As a reminder all proceeds from the Conference series go directly to Software in the Public Interest, a 501(c)3 non-profit, and will be used for PostgreSQL development, support and advocacy.
So if you are on the east coast and can help with organizing this conference please let me know at jd go-no-spam@ commandprompt.com . [updated] The conference website is located here.
