> Personally the talks I'd be most interested in hearing are related to database design and performance.  As a programmer learning to be a dba as I go the postgresql problems I run into most at work involve keeping query times reasonable as the size of our database grows, maybe not postgresql specific, but talks about topics like ranging from the basic considerations when designing new database schemas, to when and how to approach de-normalization of your data, partitioning, sharding, materialized views,etc.  Looking through pdxpug's notes on past meetings it looks like they've had quite a few talks in this genre.  If you are interested and willing to talk about one of these subjects Robert I think that would be awesome, otherwise maybe we could convince some of pdxpug's previous speakers to come up here and give their talks again.
