PGDay.it ended

PGDay.it is over, it was a really impressive conference with a lot of good talks. The people from the Prato Linux User Group did a really good job. I met many people which i only knew by mail or irc, had some interesting discussions and of course we had fun ;-)


I'm just back from the Prato LUG bar (yeah, they even have a bar, imagine that!). We had a nice meeting right before starting the party: it was all about creating an european user group. I think, we are getting somewhere, people had some nice ideas. Now we just have to transform this ideas into something more usable.


Tomorrow we will use the free day and make a trip to Florence.

If you know the name of the people on the pictures, just add a comment.


The slides for my own talk (about using tablelog for audits) are available at: http://andreas.scherbaum.la/writings/. Especially the italian and french guys did not even know about tablelog and was very interested.

Thanks to mastermind for proofreading.

Community relations

I decided to have a second talk in front of my main talk and prepared some slides from the community day in Prato yesterday. The talk was named "Community relations" and got some attention ;-)

My main talk was about migrating web platforms from MySQL to PostgreSQL but i was a bit nervous, so this wasn't a good show.

Got icecream

Yesterday Stefan (mastermind) and i finally arrived in Prato just to meet David Fetter, Magnus Hagander and Josh Berkus in the hotel. We made a trip into the city because we had some hours until the evening program starts. There are some interesting fotos in my gallery.

The community program was a visit i a very good restaurant, we were 21 people and got bread, different meats and potatoes to eat, some people even tried to empty the available bottles ;-)
After the restaurant we visited a bar and there i finally got my icecream!

Last visit for this day was the boat we five already visited earlier this day.

All in all i met many interesting people and the Prato Linux usergroup is really impressive.


I wanted to write this blog entry yesterday in the evening (or more exactly early this morning), but the gatekeeper bugged me to leave the hotel lobby. So it's not as long as yesterday and i already forgot one or two facts i wanted to write down :-(

Even Magnus was faster updating his blog and feeding the planet ;-)
