"A regular feature, PGCon will have a Lightning talks session, with presentations on diverse topics.

The format remains essentially the same: in a one hour period, audiences are entertained and informed by a rapid fire series of short talks on interesting new or on-going work by individuals or groups. Slides aer permitted, but not obligatory; pictures are highly recommended. Topic areas include new open source software projects, works in progress for future releases of existing projects, student projects, etc. Lightning talks topics this year may make good conference papers next year!"


EnterpriseDB are sponsoring this event for all PGCon 2011 attendees. Dinner and drinks will be provided. See the map on the website for directions to the venue.

The Velvet Room 62 York St Ottawa, ON K1N 8Y3 - 6:30pm-8:30pm
