Tip for West side U.S. folks going to PgConf.EU in October

This tip works very well for me because of my physical location (Bellingham, WA) but it would also work reasonably well for anyone flying from Denver->West Coast including places such as Houston. It does take a little bit of patience though.

A normal trip for myself would mean driving down to SEA which is 90 minutes to 2 hours. This year, I decided on whim to see what it would take to fly out of YVR (Vancouver, B.C.) which is only 60 minutes driving.

Since I would be flying out of YVR on a non-connecting flight, I paid Canadian Dollars. For those that haven't been paying attention, the U.S. dollar has been doing very well lately (even overtaking the euro on some days). For example, the Canadian dollar is 27% cheaper right now than the U.S. dollar and thus my flight was 27% cheaper.

You can't connect to YVR, you must fly out of YVR. Therefore if you are in the aforementioned areas, you would fly into Seattle or Bellingham and then drive to YVR to connect to a new flight. Be patient and give yourself enough time (to not miss your flight), and you are going to save a lot of money.

Cheerio and make sure you register for my class!

In the beginning

There was Unix, Linux and Windows. They all run on hardware and that hardware all has bugs. What is the best way to work around hardware bugs? Backups.

You haven't had bad hardware, only bad developers? That's o.k., we have a solution to them too. It is called backups.

You haven't had bad hardware or bad developers, just bosses who still demand to have direct access to the data even though they haven't proven an ability to extract useful information without an extreme amount of hand holding? That's o.k., we have a solution to them too. It is called backups.

You haven't had any of the above? Lucky you! Can we move to your country or will you share whatever it is that you are putting in your tea? It sounds fantastic.

Either way, we have a solution to your data confidence, it is called backups and that is what this training is about.
