PGConf.EU 2011: My schedule

PGConf.EUI’m very exciting about upcoming PGConf.EU 2011, which will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands this month. And it’s time to choose the most interesting talks to visit. So I prefer these:

Wednesday, October 19

11:10 - 12:00
PostgreSQL 9.1 - what's new

Despite the fact I read a lot about new Pg 9.1 features, it’s always interesting to get overview by someone who knows system very well and spent a lot of time developing it.

12:10 - 13:00
Look Out The Window Functions (and free your SQL)
Gianni Ciolli

It’s a shame, but I really know a little about this powerful functionality.

Lunch!

It goes without saying! :)

14:00 - 14:50

I hope index-only scans will be presented here also.

15:20 - 16:10

Development process! What else to say?!

Thursday, October 20

09:30 - 10:20
