PDXPUG: May meeting: Lightning Talks

When: 7-9pm Thu May 16, 2013
Where: Iovation
Who: Group
What: Lightning Talks

Recent presentations have sparked several conversations of the “no sh–, there I was” variety, so for May we’ll be doing Lightning Talks. Bring your stories of wizardry, abject failure, and “Hail Mary” passes. We do request that your topic have something to do with Postgres, but that’s the only requirement – you don’t even need to have slides if you don’t want to. If you’ve never given a talk before, a lightning talk is a great low-risk way to try it out!

Our meeting will be held at Iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

Building security will close access to the floor at 7:30.

After-meeting beer location: Huber’s. See you there!

PDXPUG: April meeting in two weeks – eXtreme Database Makeover

When: 7-9pm Thu April 18, 2013
Where: Iovation
Who: PSU students
What: eXtreme Database Makeover: Portal, part 2

Usually when we do Extreme Database Makeover, we’re referring to the schema. This time, we’re going to do some GUC tuning. The Portal database is running pretty close to a default configuration, and we can help the student admins improve that.

This will be a group effort; bring your favorite performance tuning references.
