pgCon 2013 Unconference Day

The PostgreSQL Community is having our first Unconference Day at pgCon 2013 in Ottawa! This event, sponsored by, extends pgCon and gives us additional opportunities to share, collaborate, and discuss about PostgreSQL development, hacking, usage, and community.

For more about unconference days and why we're doing this, see the Unconference Day FAQ.

If you are interested in holding a session, or you want someone else to do a session on a particular topic on the Unconference day, please add your proposal to "session ideas" below.

How Sessions are Selected

No predetermined schedule is set for the Unconference Day beforehand. Instead, participants in the Unconference bring their ideas, demands, wishlists and discussion topics, and propose sessions at 10am in MRT 202. Anyone can lead a session. Sessions are accepted by acclaim, and scheduled collaboratively in the first period from 10am to 11am.

In order to get things started quickly on the Unconference Day, participants are encouraged to post session ideas on the wiki, below, before the unconference actually starts.

For more information, see the Unconference Day FAQ
