By request, the format of PGCon 2015 will differ significantly from previous year.
Our goal is to give you more of what you want while still keeping the stuff you've always liked.

In June 2015, PGCon will be structured as follows:

Unconference: 16-17 June 2015 (Tue afternoon & all day Wed)

Beginner Tutorials: 17 June 2015 (Wed)

Talks: 18-19 June 2015 (Thu-Fri)

Advanced Tutorial: 20 June 2015 (Sat)

The big changes are:
- Unconference moved to weekdays and now 1.5 days (was one day; Saturday)
- Tutorials split between beginner and advanced, and now on Wednesday & Saturday
   (was Tuesday & Wednesday)


The unconference has become a bigger and more significant part of PGCon
for PostgreSQL contributors.  It has moved to earlier in the week to
coordinate with other developer meetings, in order to expand the
participation in development discussions and meetings around PGCon.
Additionally, the shift of some tutorials to Saturday allows tutorials to 
involve key PostgreSQL contributors without schedule conflicts.

Unfortunately, this meant moving something else to Saturday, at least for this year.
We considered moving the talks to earlier in the week, but we felt that our changes
were already disruptive and wanted to minimize the effects this late change may
have on people who have already booked travel / accommodation.  To those 
affected, we apologize and hope that this new structure will benefit everyone.
