A couple people asked about this last night...

Topics: 	Gabrielle's new database design; and EXPLAIN
Who:	Gabrielle Roth, XO communications; Selena Deckelmann, Chris King  
Precision Components
When: 	Tuesday, December 19, 2006, 7pm
Where: 	FreeGeek, 1731 SE 10th Ave

Gabrielle has been working on a new database and will lead us through  
the trials and tribulations of the application she developed and  
maintains.  This recently involved a full schema-rewrite and you will  
delight in learning the reasons why.

I have been reading up on EXPLAIN.  I think this talk will be mostly  
of a whirlwind tour through what the planner does when executing a  
query, drawn from the Performance chapter in the Douglas book. I will  
focus on the practical implications for structuring some simple  
queries and try to draw on a number of sources.

You can get information on a couple talks that the amazing David  
Wheeler has given (including "what's new in 8.2" back in October),  
last month's benchmarking talk, and slides from August that give an  
overview of setting up PostgreSQL on OS X.
