YAPC::Europe Day 2

Just while I was having a shower, the hotel had a 5-minute power cut. I decided to walk down the stairs to breakfast.

Another day of two breakfasts, one at the hotel and one at the conference venue (even more Баница) while meeting everyone.

Today I've mostly stayed in the "Devops" track as I've been doing a lot of web operations recently.

First talk of the day: SyContent - Content in the Cloud with V8. Torsten took us through the history of content management systems. He explained how he thinks content management…

YAPC::Europe Day 1

John highlighted the importance of a threat model and how avoiding v…

I managed to pick up a Баница, a pastry with fresh cheese. We then wandered around, found a great Rodin exhibition and made it to the evening meetup a…

Missing YAPC::Europe

I was really looking forward to YAPC::Europe next week in Kiev. The talks looked great and I was looking forward to seeing the Perl community. However, for work reasons I won't make it. This sucks.

What conferences should I go to instead?

YAPC::Europe Day 3

The third and last day of YAPC::Europe and everyone is a little tired after all the socialising and thinking.

This morning there was a little presentation about YAPC::Europe next year in Kiev, Ukraine. Should be cooler!

Stevan Little presented A MOP for Perl 5 which sounds like he's chosen a very simple syntax for nice concise OO code (and a backend).

Kenichi Ishigaki presented CPANTS: Kwalitative website and its tools where he explained the story behind taking over CP…

About acme

user-pic Léon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.
