What I learned at YAPC::EU 2010

This is a small list of stuff I learned at YAPC::EU 2010 in Pisa.

  • I can blog here at blogs.perl.org
  • I need to look at Try::Tiny. It's supposed to be (exceptionally) good at handling exceptions
  • The WWW::Mechanize::Firefox talk by Max Maischein should have been a bit longer. Max said he used RT for support questions and bug reports
  • The bars in Pisa close early and without any warning
  • People compile and install their own perl instead of using the version that comes with the OS
  • A lot of people use FastCGI instead of mod_perl. FastCGI has a X-Sendfile feature
  • I need to take a look at AnyEvent http://search.cpan.org/dist/AnyEvent/
  • I need to take a look at CPAN Minus (cpanm)
  • I need to take a look at Varnish http://varnish-cache.org/ for ESI and caching
  • I need to take a look at Splunk http://www.splunk.com/ for log handling
  • I need to take a look at MogileFS http://code.google.com/p/mogilefs/
  • Task::Kensho http://search.cpan.org/~apeiron/Task-Kensho/ contains a number of modules which are recommended by mst and other CPAN/perl celebs
  • Norweigan has a direct connection from Copenhagen to Pisa
  • Gitalist is a better web front end to git http://www.gitalist.com/
  • The food in Pisa is excellent
  • Perlbrew sounds like an interesting project
