  • Commented on The Perl Conference in Riga
    For some reason, you and Leila were not invisible to me. Well, in real life, we did not meet, but online, we did. I followed some of your life from the sideline. I admire you two (three, I should not...
  • Commented on YAML and more at the Perl Toolchain Summit 2019
    It's always a pleasure to take care of the needs of the vegans, vegetarians, allergics, picky, and the others. Finding the right stuff is always a challenge. And you are always so grateful, it is so nice to see you...
  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2018 White Camel Awards
    As a previous White Camel Award winner, I hope my opinion that Perl 6 is also Perl and that therefore Perl 6 people can also win a White Camel Award, would be of some value. I would like to nominate...

    Thanks! Indeed, also non-programmers can be charmed by Perl, and be helpful to the ideals of open source and the ideals of Perl....
  • Commented on RPerl at YAPC Europe - Day 2
    Well, as it turned out, you did know what you were talking about! And you are a wonderful public speaker, and you know it... :-)...
  • Commented on RPerl at YAPC Europe - Day 1
    I indeed somewhat forced you on stage, and you did admirably. Thank you for attending The Perl Conference, representing RPerl, speaking, doing marketing, and being a fun neighbour to my booth....
  • Commented on My First Perl Conference
    I didn't write my reaction to provoke a thanks by you. Just wanted to let you know that I saw you, like who you are, hugged you, and did not notice you needed more hugs, and maybe needed some more...

    Nice to meet you again, and I am happy that you came after getting such advice from us at the German Perl Workshop....
  • Commented on My First Perl Conference
    Excellent blog, thanks! I now know I did not hug you enough, and did not chat with you enough. I thought you were damn butch and now I see you just were posing. Well done... And it was very nice...
  • Commented on Cancellation of Perl 6 Constants and Rationals Grant
    I would not mind re-purposing the grant into the actions Zoffix wrote above. Maybe not what was proposed, but still very useful....
  • Commented on My Perl Conference in Amsterdam Takeaway
    Thanks, mephinet. I'm a member of Amsterdam.PM since before it was called that way (in the nineties, it was just a semi-regular "monthly" meeting of Perl programmers from Amsterdam and surroundings), and of AmsterdamX.PM since I knew of its existance,...
  • Commented on My Perl Conference in Amsterdam Takeaway
    Re: "Thanks a lot for organizing the conference, AmsterdamX.pm, I'm looking forward to seeing you all in Glasgow." The conference was organised by members of both Amsterdam.PM and AmsterdamX.PM. I am a member of both. Happy you liked it. See...

    I can. But I can't remove that comment....

    Can I add text to my own blog?...
  • Commented on Why in The World Would Anyone Use Perl 6?
    Thank you! This is one of the little things that make me happy, and Perl 6 has many little things that are making people happy....
  • Commented on Christmas Came, Bah Humbug
    I cannot give you an immediate business case to switch to Perl 6, but I can address some of your points. Perl 6 has the module Inline::Perl5 that allows you to use virtually all code from Perl 5 inside Perl...
  • Commented on Suspending efforts on my #riba2016 crowdfunding campaign, looking forward to my own Xmas
    I look back on many meetings with you, formal, informal, and otherwise. Most of the meetings taught me that you are very smart, and often not very diplomatic. Not being diplomatic does not mean that you weren't right. I am...
  • Commented on Perl 6 lives!
    I want to add: Thank you Damian for your hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours of work to help with the design and implementation of Perl 6, and furthermore to make examples, and to make and present your presentations all over...
  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards
    I hope I can nominate several people. Jonathan Worthington So tremendously often available and willing for a presentation, a course, or to help out at a booth, you would expect him to not even have a job. Not mentioning that...
  • Commented on YAPC::EU 2015 from 2nd to 4th September
    Same for The Netherlands, which is divided in 3 regions. Summer holiday is 6 weeks, and each region starts a week after the other, and the last region's summer holiday ends on august 30. Several Dutch Perl Mongers will not...

  • Posted Marketing for Perl is easy because Perl is awesome to Wendy

    Liz and I were awarded the White Camel Award last year and are very proud of that. Thank you all. Too much honor, and I feel a bit silly now. No modules on CPAN, not a member of any Perl-organisation, not a single line of code written in the past 9 years, and mainly being silly and loud.

  • Commented on Bangkok.pm 1 meet up short summary and pictures.
    Congrats on the success of the meeting. The pictures are very nice. Those buttons and stickers and the camel look very very familiar (proud here!). Wish you have many more interesting meetings! Greetz, Wendy...
  • Commented on 1. Czech Perl Workshop
    lichtkind, Thank you for a nice report. Indeed, Richard and Martina organised an excellend workshop. The speakers were very nice (as far as we non-Czech people could understand them, since a lot was done in Czech). The venue was also...
  • Commented on Damage control is not quality assurance
    Using a hotel is a great idea. Certainly when it is within the budget. But remember, even when you let the hotel take care of breakfast, lunch, dinner and inbetween snacks (ow budget again), they might not accomodate for all...

  • Commented on Is Perl really short of newbies?
    In 2013, my partner Liz and I went to 18 Perl events and we have seen dozens and dozens of newbies. Quite often, one of the organisers asks the attendees: "please raise your hand if this is the first Perl-event...
  • Commented on The 2013 White Camels
