Accidental DBA and More at OSCON next week

O'Reilly OSCON is next week, and I'll be attending for the first time since 2009.  I'll be teaching the Accidental DBA tutorial, for which I've just uploaded the preparation materials.  There's also lots of other PostgreSQL and community-building content, much of which I'm involved in.

As an experiment, I'm trying to do hands-on for this tutorial by using Vagrant, which will provide each attendee with a nice VM they can use to try out various PostgreSQL administrative commands.  Of course, this means that attendees need to download, install, and run setup on Vagrant before the tutorial, and preferably while they are still at home with good internet access.  I've a feeling that 20 people will want to try to install it the morning of the tutorial, which won't work. I'm also conflicting with "predictive R analytics", dammit.

If you're attending the tutorial, preparation materials are here.

As usual, there will be a significant amount of PostgreSQL content aside from my own tutorial, which includes:
Of course, my main reason for going to OSCON is for the community-building stuff.  I'll be involved in the Community Leadership Summit, where I will be giving a mini-talk called "Fundraising 101" on Saturday afternoon.  Then I'll be involved in both of these two sessions:
So, if you're going to be at OSCON, I'll no doubt see you there!
