I know this isn't exactly Perl, but I know there's strong synergy between
Perl and PostgreSQL. I'm passing along this announcement for Joshua D.

The event this year is being held at Seattle Central Community College
from October 16th through 18th. The move to Seattle opens up a larger
metropolitan area for continuing to expose databases users, developers,
and administrators to the World's Most Advanced Open Source Database.
Following previously successful West Coast conferences, we will be
hosting a series of 3-4 hour tutorials, 90 minute mini-tutorials, and 45
minute talks.

This year we will be continuing our trend of covering the entire
PostgreSQL ecosystem. We would like to see talks and tutorials on the
following topics:

General PostgreSQL:

      * Performance
      * High Availability
      * Migration
      * GIS
      * Integration
      * Solutions and White Papers

The Stack:
      * Perl5/Catalyst/Bricolage
      * Potato
      * Ruby/Rails
      * Java (PLJava would be great)/Groovy/Grails
      * Operating System optimization (Linux/FBSD/Solaris/Windows)
      * Solutions and White Papers

If you are using PostgreSQL as your platform, you need to be presenting
at this conference! You may submit your paper here:


Andrew B. Sweger -- The great thing about multitasking is that several
                                things can go wrong at once.
