PGDay.EU day one

align="right" So, day one is almost finished, when it comes to the conference itself - and then it's off to the EnterpriseDB evening party. A quick summary of the day is: awesome.

Going into a little more detail, the day started with us actually getting up painfully early. Got to ParisTech in the morning, right as they opened up our room. I have to say the facilities at ParisTech have been great - the rooms are in great shape, perfect size, and all the A/V equipment is working perfectly. (Yes, there is a slight flicker on one of the projectors, but it's not bad).

I did the intro section with Jean-Paul, and there's really not much to say about that. We (well, I) forgot to add a slide about the feedback - oops. I bet that's one reason we don't have as much feedback entered yet as we'd like.

Simon took over with a keynote, which was very good. Simon is a very good speaker, and he found a good balance between technical and non-technical talks. It was a nice way to kick off the conference. At this time, we had somewhere between 125-150 people had shown up, which is definitely not bad.

I half-followed the English track after that, with talks about PostGIS and Data Warehousing, which were both very good talks. Also spent some time in the organization, which has really worked pretty smoothly. We've had a few minor issues, but they were all solved quickly.

Lunch was fantastic. Many thanks to our great caterers who served us an amazing lunch, with good organization, and more than enough food. Couldn't be better!

align="left" Watched Gavin's talk on scalability after lunch, which is always a good one. After that I had my own talk which went at least Ok, though I did finish a bit early. After that it was off to a pgadmin developer meeting, which is where I am now.

So I'd better go now, so I don't miss out on the activities.
