When:
    Tuesday, April 5, 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Where:
    James Squire Brewery 

The April meeting of the Sydney Linux Users Group will be held on the
5th of April. Meet us at the James Squire Brew House at King St Wharf
from 18:30 onwards.

Gavin Sherry will be giving a follow up to Anand's talk last month. This
talk will explore the mechanisms available in PostgreSQL which can be
used to ensure data integrity: unique indexes, column level constraints
and foreign keys.

Neil will be delivering a talk on the PostgreSQL query planner. This is
a first look at the talk he plans to deliver at linux.conf.au.

The final talk of the evening will be on techniques to migrate
PostgreSQL to MySQL, including transforming NULL date columns to
0000-0-0, storing those pesky numbers which are greater than 2^31 and a
script to remove error checking code from Java and C applications, since
it is now redundant. For more information and background reading see
this site.

NOTE: There might be a video + postgresql talk as well.

Cheers,
Anand
