This talk will be led by Joe Conway. Joe is an innovative leader with broad experience in a wide array of disciplines and extensive international business exposure. He has been involved with PostgreSQL as a contributor since 2001. He is also the author and maintainer of a PostgreSQL procedural language handler for the R language, PL/R.
