PGDay Europe 2010 schedule announced

I'm pleased to be able to say that the schedule for this year's PGDay Europe conference in Stuttgart, Germany on the 6th - 8th December 2010 is now available.

We have a bumper crop of talks this year, with 13 sessions in German, 26 in English, 2 keynotes and a key signing party!

We're pleased to welcome Free and Open Source veteran, Simon Phipps as the presenter of our opening keynote. Simon is well known for his involvement with various organisations including GNOME, OpenSolaris and OpenJDK and will be talking about some of the changes we've been seeing in the Open Source world recently as projects evolve and corporate involvement changes. He is perhaps best known for his role as Chief Open Source Officer at Sun Microsystems where he oversaw the companies Open Source activities.

Of course, we also have some great technical talks lined up for developers, DBAs and people considering using or deploying Postgres, on topics such as PostGIS, application development, PostgreSQL internals, clustering and replication and more all in the comfortable surroundings of a top hotel.

For the first time we've also added a day of training sessions to the schedule this year (at extra cost). Training will be available on PostgreSQL administration, application development and PostGIS, with some courses in German and some in English.

As always, we reserve the right to adjust the schedule in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

So, if you haven't done so already, head on over to the website and register your attendance at the conference. You won't regret it!

See you in Stuttgart!
