Subject:Looking for MySQL Speakers
View as plain text  
Hello,

I run PostgreSQL Conference (long announcement below). We are looking
for some people to speak on why MySQL at East 09 in Philly.
Anybody interested should submit a talk (or better yet Tutorial). Yes
this would be a little different for a MySQL person but I believe in
reaching out. Specifically I would love to see one or two people be
willing to "convince" PostgreSQL people to switch.

Begin long infomercial:

PostgreSQL Conference, U.S., East 09 will be held in Philadelphia at
historic Drexel University from April 3rd through 5th. The call for
papers is now out at: http://www.postgresqlconference.org/2009/east/ .

As always we let our submissions define our actual tracks. If you have
something you want to talk about it. Submit it. As long as it is about
PostgreSQL (or doing something with PostgreSQL) we will consider it.

We are seeking creative ideas about things we can do at the conference.
At West we had a code sprint. The sprint was very successful as it was
about all things postgresql and open source. It wasn't just hacking back
end code but people worked on all kinds of things.. Is someone up for
running a code sprint? 

There has also been specific interest in having us add (in addition to
our advanced topics) a newbie track. Please do not be afraid to submit a
talks on items such as:

      * Backing up PostgreSQL
      * Understanding and Configuring Autovacuum
      * Normalization
      * Trigger Happy (how to use triggers ;)
      * PITR -- happiness is a shipped transaction log

Other topics we are interested in beyond the standard PostgreSQL
architectural fanfare are:

      * Groovy/Grails
      * Django
      * PHP
      * Postgis
      * Pylons
      * SQL Alchemy
     
So don't delay, PostgreSQL Conference, U.S. is the premeire PostgreSQL
conference series for the United States PostgreSQL community! Please
submit your talk here: http://www.postgresqlconference.org/2009/east/ .

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
