Last Tuesday I gave my first talk at the Amsterdam Perl Mongers' meeting. I did an introduction to PPI, Adam Kennedy's Perl parser module. It was my first real talk, but once I got started, it went reasonably well, I think. People were interested in the topic, and some nice discussion was had.
The organizer of the Dutch Perl Workshop asked me to do the talk at the workshop. Apparently an uncertain "Uhhh" is equivalent to "Yes, of course!" as the next day, I saw name added to the listof speakers. I'm flattered
