Slides from YAPC::EU 2010 - When Perl Met Android

At YAPC::EU 2010, amongst all the talks I've attended and people I've met, I also gave a talk myself.

The talk was titled "When Perl Met Android" and discussed the Android operating system for mobile devices and the SL4A project and how to use it to run Perl on your phone.

You can find the slides right here. Hopefully I'll be able to cut the screencast to parts and upload to youtube or - or both. Once that happens, I'll post links here as well.

The ideas to give the talk at YAPC::EU 2010 (which was also my first YAPC ever) and to participate in the SL4A project itself - promoting Perl - were both conceived by Gabor Szabo, to whom I owe quite a lot.

This is a good chance to say "thank you". Gabor has supported me with talks in multiple PM groups. He was the one who got me interested in SL4A (when it was originally called ASE) and pushed me to go to YAPC::EU and even give a talk there. He also supported me throughout YAPC::EU, which was quite intimidating for me at first.

My hat's off to him.

Thank you.
