> Hi all,
> I think it's about time we restart PostgreSQL User Group meetings in
> Wellington, that stopped years ago. With number of projects where it's
> used, and people that use it, it is certainly justified.
> In January this year Josh Berkus, core team member, gave a
> presentation on 9.4 features, and the number of people that showed up
> is a clear signal that Wellington PostgreSQL community needs a regular
> meet-up. I spoke about this with Brent Wood from NIWA (who organized
> Josh's session at NIWA's Gretta Point office) and we agreed something
> needs to be done. 
> So from this month, let's try and have a meet up every third Thursday
> of the month - that makes the 18th of June a date for the first
> meeting.
> Catalyst, supporting Open Source community as always, kindly agreed to
> provide space (some of you may remember that Catalyst used to host
> PostgreSQL user group meetings years ago).
> For the very first meeting, the plan is to get to know each other,
> find out what people are doing with PostgreSQL and plan some
> presentations for the coming months (and have some pizza and beer).
> We're also going to hear about some cool stuff guys from DMS are doing
> with PostgreSQL - Simon Nitz will talk about PostgreSQL/PostGIS and
> LINZ Maps: 
>   "6 months ago DMS implemented our IntraMaps web mapping software at
>   LINZ, utilising their national data sets within a PostgreSQL 9.4
>   environment.  IntraMaps is built on MapServer which is also Open
>   source.
>   Access to “LINZ Maps” is available for internal staff and
>   contractors to access with an anticipated 4000 users."
> Where: Level 3, Catalyst House, 150 Willis Street, Wellington
> When: 6pm 18th June 2015
> Please come, and please share this invite with others that may be
> interested.
> Best regards,
> Miroslav Vujičić
