PGUK : PostgreSQL @ Spring 2008

The UK PostgreSQL User Group and UKUUG PostgreSQL SIG will be running our 
first one day Conference on Wednesday 2nd April 2008 at the Conservatoire in 
central Birmingham. 

The main theme of the day is "PostgreSQL in the UK" and we're emphasising that 
with a range of talks focused around the work of UK-based developers, 
successful UK-based projects and UK companies. 

If you're using PostgreSQL in the UK then please come along and join in, 
you'll find many interesting people there from across the UK. 

PGUK 2008 is brought to you jointly by the UK Unix User Group (UKUUG)'s 
PostgreSQL Special Interest Group (SIG) and the UK PostgreSQL User Group. 

PGUK 2008 is running in parallel with and at the same venue as UKUUG's 
Conference known as Spring 2008. If you are a delegate to PGUK 2008 you will 
be able to attend Spring 2008 talks on the same day also, if you wish.
