      <p>Scott Mead is a Sr. Architect and founding member at the Open
        Source Consulting Group (OpenSCG).  Scott has 12 years of
        experience with the PostgreSQL database engine including,

        administration and modification of the PostgreSQL kernel. 
        Lately, Scott has been highly focused on relational data in a
        horizontally-scalable world; integrating PostgreSQL with NoSQL
        data processing engines.</p>
      <p> </p>
      <br>
      <p><b>Talk: </b>What's the place of an RDBMS in a NoSQL world? 
        We will dive in to tools and tricks available to PostgreSQL
        developers and admins that allow us to take advantage of BOTH
        horizontally-scalable AND relational models simultaneously.</p>

      <p>Talbert Hall is more or less between the Governor's and

      <p><b>Special note from  Charlie:</b> I let the TV weather
        discussion scare me into calling off the November 12 session.
        I'm not sure how well I did at notifying people. If you care to
        send me a phone number (<a href="mailto:cjwertz@gmail.com"
          target="_blank" rel="nofollow">cjwertz@gmail.com</a>), I will
        call you if this happens again. If you do this, let me know if
        it is a cell number; in that case I will send a text. I promise
        not to give anyone else your number and it is very unlikely I
        will use it for any other purpose. <br>
