Robert: When I was helping Josh with the scheduling, we were initially going to make sure that the hacking tutorial ran concurrently with non-technical talks. However, on reflection this seemed like precisely the wrong thing to do: experienced Postgres hackers won’t have much to learn from the hacking tutorial, because it will focus on fairly elementary topics. So we decided to put some of the more hardcore technical talks, such as the talks on multi-threading and SMP scalability, alongside the hacking tutorial, so that the hardcore folks can see the technical talks, and the relative novices can attend the tutorial.
