Postgres East 2008 Conference

I’m in Baltimore this weekend at the Postgres East 2008 conference. I’m giving a presentation tomorrow on SQL/XML for developers. Below is the presentation and below that is the code used in the presentation.

Code to follow along:

CREATE TABLE EMP
(
  LAST_NAME text,
  EMP_ID integer NOT NULL,
  FIRST_NAME text,
  DEPT_ID integer,
  SALARY integer,
  CONSTRAINT EMP_pkey PRIMARY KEY (EMP_ID)
)
WITH (OIDS=FALSE);
ALTER TABLE EMP OWNER TO xmluser;
