This month we'll be shifting gears a bit to focus on automating your cloud deployments and improving database performance. We're especially delighted to be hosting Craig Kerstiens of Heroku who will be giving us the run down on Postgres performance. The format will be roughly the same, drinks and food starting at 6:30pm, followed by two thirty-minute presentations. We hope you can join us!
