Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Unsure About OSCON

[ #35983 ]

Both of my OSCON proposals were rejected. This raises a big question mark about whether I'll be able to attend this year. Damn.

  • I've noticed that, unlike YAPC, OSCON talks mostly need to deal with "buzzy" issues, and be more about shiny new products, or new ideas, rather than teaching people about programming practices...

    YAPC remains far superior to OSCON in that area.

    • Yeah, you're 100% right in your assessment.

      I'm somewhat upset that my two talks were also rejected. I was really looking forward to presenting them, since I'm not going to have time to talk at YAPC::NA this year.
  • Both my talks were rejected also. One I thought was pretty solid, I've given it a few places and gotten very positive responses.

    A definite bummer, I have wanted to attend OSCON for several years but this is the second year my proposal didn't get accepted. Seeing as how I am self employed right now paying my own way is not likely even with the 25% discount I get as a rejected speaker.

    It would be nice if OSCON offered a discount for open source contributers who run small shops like me (hint hint).
