We are excited to host a talk from Claire Giordano about the reasons PostgreSQL is awesome and improving all the time. After the talk we'll have an unconference style discussion time. Potential topics include ways the PostgreSQL community can continue to evolve, opportunities for everyone to get involved with the database and with the community, and resources for submitting conference talks. We look forward to taking audience suggestions as well.
