About domm

user-pic Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 kids, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, no longer dreadlocked and more than 34 years old but too lazy to update my profile once a year.

I've got stuff on CPAN, held various talks and organise the Austrian Perl Workshops and YAPC::Europe 2007.
