Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [] modules [] to CPAN, giving talks [], and use of the Trelane nick on for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

Templating! Debate!

[ #11696 ]
On Monday we had an extra tech meet. I say extra as we weren't scheduled to have another tech meet until next month, but as David Wheeler was in town and was offering to speak I didn't want to pass up the opportunity.

I'd been meaning to get Mark Lester and Andy Wardley to speak for ages. Mark is the creator of Jake, Yahoo!'s internal templating language, and as everyone who reads this journal knows, Andy wrote The Template Toolkit. Since David was speaking we had three experts on templating systems, so I got the Fotango lot to convince Alex Monney to make it four and did something we've never done at London Perl Mongers: a panel discussion.

So after David did the same talk he's scheduled to present over an hour and a half at YAPC::NA in 30min (way to go David), the panel answered questions from the audience. I was really pleased that we got a collection of sensible questions, though I did love Dom's "What's the worse way you've abused a templating system" as well.

And then we knocked off early and went to the pub. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, though acme complained that no-one threw any punches in the panel even though they were using different templating system. I guess he has a month we'll have vi and emacs users getting on.
