I'm Going To Disney World!
Well, actually I'm going to YAPC::NA in Orlando, Florida. That "magic kingdom" place is just a side show by comparison.
This will be my fourth YAPC, and I'm especially excited this year. There have been a lot of advancements in asynchronous programming, meta-object protocols, and web frameworks. So I'm really looking forward to presentations on those.
And of course, there are all the hidden gems that I discover at YAPC -- things I had never expected to learn, but turn out to be incredibly useful or enlightening. Those alone are well worth the expense of attending.
And I always enjoy meeting all the fantastic people who have contributed to Perl::Critic and Pinto over the years. So if you see me, please come up and say "hi". I am pretty easy to spot -- I'm usually the only guy wearing a suit and tie.
Hope to see you all in June!
