interest in this list?

Álvaro Herrera
Howdy Sydpuggers,

The previous list owner's email for this list no longer works; in fact,
the person in charge is not even in Sydney at all.  I wonder if there's
still any interest in the SydPUG, and whether there's anybody who would
like to be in charge of this list.

If there's no interest, we will close the list to further activity,
until a new owner appears.

Please let us know.

Re: interest in this list?

Arulappan, Arul Shaji
Hi Alvaro,

I am interested in maintaining this list. I have been involved with this
list from the beginning. In recent times haven't had much time to
allocate to this activity, but I am planning to change that.

I am more than happy to take ownership of the list and manage it.

Rgds,
Arul Shaji

The list is moribund. It had some good days a few years ago with the
backing of Fujitsu FAST and personalities like Charles Duffy and Gavin Sherry
(I imagine Charles Duffy is the owner you mention? I believe he's in India these days).

I believe the list can be safely closed.

Best regards,
Stuart.

Re: interest in this list?

philip_rhoades
People,

Two things come to mind:

- Is anyone interested in running an intro course on PL/pgSQL ? - I
have never really had DBs myself that needed this sort of performance
improvement but it would be a good thing to do.

- I soon will need to set up large and growing DBs of large chunks of
written text and be able to parse that for semantic meaning - it looks
like Sphynx and Xapian would be more suited to this sort of stuff but it
would be nice if I could stick to PG - any comments?

Thanks,

Phil.

PL/pgsql is relatively simple as languages go.  Are there particular
issues you've been having?

What kinds of volumes are we talking about at the moment, both the
extant corpus of work and the rate at which it's growing?

Cheers,
David.

No, I haven't used it at all so far - I just thought it might be
interesting if someone is motivated to have a Meetup and give a talk.

Not going yet but I expect tens to maybe hundreds of MBs (maybe
eventually GBs?) for each person and for potentially thousands of people
- however an individual would only ever interact with their own data in
a chatbot-like environment.

Thanks,

Phil.

In reply to this post by Stuart Cooper
I'm relatively new to this list, and have been lurking.

I've been involved in a number of Open Source lists, and suggest that it might be more appropriate to maintain an Australian list, or Australian/New Zealand list (rather than Sydney only), which I expect is more likely to attract sufficient traffic to ensure the list is a valuable and sustainable communication channel.

I'll answer Philip's email about training in a separate thread.

Re: Postgres and PostGIS training

In reply to this post by philip_rhoades
Philip,
LISAsoft has teamed up with EnterpriseDB to provide commercial support
and services for Postgres in Australia and New Zealand.

In particular, we have upcoming training in "Postgres Administration"
and also comprehensive course on the spatial functionality provided by
PostGIS.
Details here: http://lisasoft.com/training-schedule

If there is a demand for a PL/pgSQL introduction course, we'd be happy
to add that to our list of courses. Are you aware of sufficient demand
fill a classroom?

I was only speaking for me before the list was wound up . .

Re: Postgres and PostGIS training

andrew.boag@catalyst-au.net
It would be good to have a PG session.

Catalyst would be happy to host this event. Our office is 89 York St in
the city. We are just in the process of an office move so would be best
in a few weeks.

Happy to do a talk as well if required.
  - We did an Oracle -> Postgres migration project for Moodle for a
Queensland university last year which was an interesting case study.

Any interest?

Re: Postgres and PostGIS training

philip_rhoades
People,

I would be interested in going to some talks but eg I am not interested
in an Oracle migration talk.  I could set up another Meetup group (on my
account) for six months as a test - if someone else was prepared to be
the main "organiser" - a Meetup group might reach a wider PG audience
than this list has?

Regards,

Phil.
