JPUG 10th Anniversary conference pics

I finally got my photos from the JPUG 10th Anniversary conference in Tokyo online. Most are actually from the events before and after the actual conference which involved some sightseeing, and lots of discussions of PostgreSQL on topics such as infrastructure issues and server virtualisation, how to be more supportive of new developers, and how to make MERGE work nicely with the PostgreSQL rules system.

Breakfast sushi at 6AM!After hitting the limits on my free Flickr account I figured it was time to move to Smugmug, so you can find the full set of pics over there.

Thanks again to all the JPUG folks for an exceptional conference!

Are you ready for 2009? 2009 starts tomorrow morning, at Telecom ParisTech in Paris, France. A few of us are here already to make sure the local bars and restaurants are suitable for the discerning PostgreSQL hacker or user, and in our spare time finishing our preparations for the great lineup of talks and and general 'get together' of Postgres people.

One thing that we haven't yet announced, is the almost traditional EnterpriseDB Party. This year it will be at Acrobates et Funambules, which is just a minutes walk from the conference venue at 204, Rue de Tolbiac, 75013 Paris, immediately following the conference on Friday. Due to the way the venue likes to operate, we'll be giving out tokens to exchange for drinks during the day at the conference. Hors d'oeuvres will also be served.

See you there!
