Thanks for the introduction, Ron. Huzzah for NE!
I encourage you all to introduce yourselves. If you have any
suggestions for topics, please include that in your message!
Also, we need to establish a regular time and place for meeting. Could
you all reply to me privately which days in the third week of the month
might work for you (M-F)? If there's no rough consensus, I'll try a
different week. The most likely place for a meeting is FreeGeek.
A little more about me:
I am really just a database user, more recently a DB admin and
certainly not a developer of PostgreSQL. I made my first network
monitoring tool using MySQL in 1999, picked up a little SQL over the
next couple of years and took a class on databases in a half-hearted
attempt at grad school. PostgreSQL is one application among many that I
support for my job. I met Josh Berkus last year at OSCON, and had an
interesting conversation with him about women in open source. I've
been impressed by the thoughtfulness of the postgresql community and I
hope I can contribute a little to that.
For work, I am run a small IT department for a manufacturing company
(we use Macs :), and really enjoy riding my bike to work every day.
I know a couple people on this mailing list from Portland Perlmongers,
and tend to code in Perl. Although lately, I've been dealing with
quite a bit of PHP, and dabbling in Ruby.
