We've finally finished the schedule for PGConf.EU 2012 in Prague in October, and put it up at http://2012.pgconf.eu/schedule/. Of course, a schedule is never truly finished - we will update it if necessary as we get closer to the conference. But the basics are there.

Our Opening Keynote this year will be delivered by industry veteran Joe Celko, who will give us an interesting look at the past and the future of SQL and other database technologies. And if you read and enjoyed the SQL for Smarties book from Joe, you have a chance to attend a full day of training with him as well! Limited number of seats available, so register quickly!

Other than Joe, we have many great talks from well known speakers in the PostgreSQL community such as Simon Riggs, Bruce Momjian, Josh Berkus, Dimitri Fontaine and Devrim Gunduz, as well as a number of new speakers with exciting stories to tell! There is more than enough content for everybody!

Early Bird registration for the conference ends this Friday. This is your last chance to register at the reduced price, after which the full price will be charged.

We hope to see you all in Prague this October!

Showed a clients Oracle DBA about the null-vs-empty-string bug. He had no idea. Don't Oracle DBA's generally know the bugs in the product?

It's not a bug if it's the only reality you know.

Thank you, chromium, for creating a ~ directory in my homedir. Trying to trick me to do something stupid, eh?

The size isn't the issue. The location is.

I don't want to track my browser history, but I do want to track configuration changes.

It's time to mark your calendars - PostgreSQL Conference Europe 2012 will be held at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague, the Czech Republic, on October 23-26 2012. As previous years there will be one day of professional training (Tuesday 23rd) and then three days of regular talks.

At this point, we are also opening our sponsorship program. We are looking for sponsors at all levels, from Bronze to Platinum. Please see our website for details about the sponsor benefits and the costs.

Follow the news feed on our site, right here on Google+, for further information as we finalise details.

Seems I ended up writing a multi-process map-reduce script just to patch a few #debian boxes faster yesterday. And it was easy...

I knew it would be too. But I'll admit I underestimated exactly how useful it would be to me.
