YAPC::NA over

[ #25430 ]

so my first YAPC::NA is over..

I wrote up a blog type of YAPC in chinese here. including pics and videos i have taken. http://xrl.us/gkze

here are some of them in english without pics/videos :)

i think i am bit surprised when half of the people in the room raised their hands when asked how many are first time in YAPC.

i think one of the greatest thing for this YAPC is that there are many interactions, it's so easy to join a conversation or start a conversation with other people. i guess i am not regret that i didn't bring my laptop to the conference. :)

oh, the talks. I missed the MVC talk, unfortunatelly. i like Michael Peters's CGI::App talks very much. he is able to give two talks on basic and how to use cgi::app.

two highlights from his talks :

1. you can use cgi::app directly in mod_perl because of the way cgi::app being done. no worry on namespace pollution. and he mentioned that cgi::app works in mod_perl 2 as well.

2. there are some useful plugin, such as the sessions one. no need to handle the session on your own.

that made me want to try CGI::Application.

UPDATE add the cgi::app and mod_perl part

  • CGI::Prototype is more lean than CGI::Application, which for me was important keeping the abstraction out of the way more often.

    Also, people are finding the Class::Prototyped base of CGI::Prototype to be incredibly flexible (fun?) to work with.
