Here are ideas for possible presentations that either people have
mentioned to me or I have been kicking around:

Introduction to PostgreSQL - a brief run down on features,
set-up/administration, where to get help and information, where to find
add-on software,

PostgreSQL on Windows -  Showcase postgresql native windows (hopefully),
explain how the different tools work, cover ODBC information.

From LRU to ARC -  explain the changes involved in the switch and the
reasoning behind it.

Full Text Indexing with tsearch2 -  explain how it all works

Optimizing PostgreSQL queries - explain output of explain commands and
what too look for in them. Also go over logging options that can help

PostgreSQL Advanced Tools and Tricks - examples of using complex
functions / data types / operators,  using rules to make updateable
views, using triggers to make materialized views.

Replication - give a run down of various replication solutions,
including rserv in contrib, and rserve/slony from gborg.  Potentially
highlight commercial offerings.

PostGIS - explain what it is, how you use it, how it's handy.

DataWarehousing with PostgreSQL - Cover improvements in 7.4 for this,
also some items in contrib.

PostgreSQL war stories - A good example is the .org registry, but it's
been done, so showcase another "enterprise level" setup, or perhaps a
migration from Oracle/DB2/m$



Anyone care to add to the list, or claim one of these?
