Choose Your Own YAPC::NA Adventure

[ #4214 ]
YAPC::NA this summer is going to be the last Perl conference I do for some time, so let's make it a good one. Here are the talks I have prepared; which do people think they'd like to hear, which should I write proposals for, and which would be better off turned into articles or just binned altogether:
  • Tutorials:
    • Perl For Systems Administrators - 3 hour tutorial
    • Perl 5 Internals - 3 hr. rerun from TPC5
    • Unicode and Perl - 3 hr. rerun from TPC5
  • New talks:
    • Bacman - A Distributed Backup System
    • optimizer.pm - Speeding up Perl the hard way
    • Mail::Miner - Finding stuff in that mass of mail
    • Parroting On - Lessons from the coal face
    • Perl 6 for Cats (5 min lightning talk.)
    • How To Write Bad Perl
    • Using and Customizing RT - 1.5 hour
    • The .NET You Need To Know
  • Reruns from TPC 5:
    • Mail::Audit - An introduction
    • 10 Modules - I wouldn't go anywhere without

I'm sure I've got more than that, but I can't find them. :(

  • I won't be at YAPC so that my voice may not count, but here are those that I'd definitely like to see as articles (or in a conference, if that ever happens): Unicode and Perl (missed it last year), optimizer.pm, Mail::Miner, Parroting On, Using and Customizing RT, The .NET You Need To Know.

    As a sidenote, are you still on holiday or is it worth one sending you article proposals for perl.com?

  • Presentations I'd like to see, in order from most-prefered down. Note that I'll likely attend the lightening talks regardless, but I placed the LT at the end because if some other too cool talk conflicted, I doubt that any single lightening talk would convince me to miss the other too cool talk. I'm interested in Mail::Miner more than anything else on the list by about an order of magnitude (according to my recently-calibrated interestometer ;) The others I'd love to see on the schedule, because I know I'm
  • I'll be at YAPC so here's my listing:

    - Using and Customizing RT - 1.5 hour
    - 10 Modules - I wouldn't go anywhere without
    - Mail::Audit - An introduction
    - Mail::Miner - Finding stuff in that mass of mail
    - The .NET You Need To Know (more for my company than me, but hey that's life)
    - Perl For Systems Administrators - 3 hour tutorial

    The rest I'm not sure how to rank, maybe toss in optimizer.pm?
