Can we do anything more in six months?

JD Wrote:

Approximately six months ago I gave the Keynote at PostgreSQL Conference West 08. This is not an unusual event as I normally present the keynote at each of the PostgreSQL Conference Series events. I recently uploaded the keynote to my Vimeo account so all can see and it is embedded below.

Upcoming PgUS Events

JD Wrote:

Now that the very successful PostgreSQL Conference East 09 is over it is time to start looking toward the future. We have a lot of stuff going on with various micro-pg communities around the United States. Here is my current list (things I will actually be attending on behalf of PgUS/PostgreSQL):

  • April 23rd: InnoTech Open Source Panel. I am on the panel and will be representing PgUS and SPI.
  • April 25th: PgDay Linux Fest Northwest. Organizing and Speaking at the event.

I was recently requested to present at a Webinar about the Hot 25 Open Source projects. I presented for about 15 minutes (about 14 minute in) on PostgreSQL. You can view and listen below.

It is now 2009 and time for a, "Thanks for all the laughs 2008!"

2008 was the year that PgUS spent getting its feet under itself. We formed our board, filed all of our legally required paperwork, paid a lot of money to attorneys, held elections and even managed to have some fun by working on parts of our mission. Many goals for 2008 were met.

We have ensured that when the new board was seated the majority of our logistical infrastructure was in place. CPA, Legal, etc...

Our Attorney is:
