Well as far as a class goes let's see how an inservice goes first. I say this for two reasons primarily putting togeather a full curiculum is a lot more work than an inservice ( although a good inservice takes a lot of prep too) and I don't want to go throught planing a class just to find there is too little intrest. The second reason is the development of the inservice combine with the questions from the audiance after will help me with producing a better class curiculum latter. Think of it as a compressed dry run.
also I do think postgresql is a good subject as I get a supprising number of inqueries from recruters on a weekly basis because postgresql variants are becoming hot in the data warehouses and there is no official certification. What's worse is I hear thing from DBA's who took classes on it that I know are wrong and its not just their intrepritation some of them have shown me classroom materials that make statments that are wrong and make it seem more difficult to manage than it is.

Classes interests me at this point. I'm wondering if you can put
together a prostgres program, and I would like to do an embperl workshop
along with the perl classes.
