Lightning talks

Short sharp descriptions of short topics

A regular feature, PGCon will have a Lightning talks session, with presentations on diverse topics.

The format remains essentially the same: in a one hour period, audiences are entertained and informed by a rapid fire series of short talks on interesting new or on-going work by individuals or groups. Slides aer permitted, but not obligatory; pictures are highly recommended. Topic areas include new open source software projects, works in progress for future releases of existing projects, student projects, etc. Lightning talks topics this year may make good conference papers next year!

The number of slots is limited, and experience suggests there will be more takers than slots. Sign up well in advance to be assured a spot. The session chair this year is yet to be decided.

Our tentative list of talks is:

  • Security, Why it's Awful and How To Fix It - David Fetter
  • Finishing Your PostgreSQL Talk On time - Greg Smith
  • PostgreSQL China PUG - Galy Lee
  • pgBadger - Gilles Darold
  • PostGIS 2.0 and CartoDB 1.0 - Javier de la Torre
  • Seven Deadly Sins of Deployment - Josh Berkus
  • pg_extractor - Keith Fiske
  • Improving the PostgreSQL Experience on the Mac, One App at a Time - Mattt Thompson
  • pgstatstatements - Peter Geoghegan
  • What to Do with a Cray Supercomputer - Stephen Frost

... however, this is subject to change up until the Lightning Talks actually begin.
