A quick char-sui bun later, and Tsung-Hsiang Chang presented "SpamAssassin and Perl". Apparently he hates spam, like the rest of us. He covered the background, how to set it up, what rules are used, how to define your own rules, and a few tips and tricks. A fairly comprehensive talk, and god knows I'd be completely lost without SpamAssassin (I got more spam during his talk than he gets in a day!).
All the speakers were then on a panel about "Running an open source software project", where autrijus asked us all to name a handy tip. Mine was "underpromise and overdeliver". Now for lunch, and clkao took me to Din Tai Fung, an excellent Taipei-style dimsum restaurant with broth-filled dimsum. Oh, and we had some weird ice dessert.
Then it was time to give my presentation on Exploiting Other Enterprises' Web Services, which was very amusing to give. Given that we're in Taipei, all the English talks are translated live. clkao was translating for me, so at the beginning we switched roles and I translated for him. The talk went well: 07:04 @autrijus argh, acme is too entertaining.
Jesse then continued talking about RT, sketching out ideas for the future. Maybe something like RTML, but using a graphical editor. "XML makes me cry", he says. His big plan is "RT everywhere". He then showed off small UI improvements from overnight.
Autrijus presented Perl 6 The Ultimate, where he explains the different features of all the historical versions of Perl, eventually leading up to demos of Perl 6 and explanations of new Perl 6 features (simplified sigils, pre- and postfix functions, rules and more), Parrot and the creation and wonderful growth of Pugs (scary committer graph). It's truly impressive how far Pugs has managed to go in such a small amount of time.
Overall, a very enjoyable conference. It was nice to finally meet miyagawa. Most of us are off to the seaside for the next few days to do some serious hacking. Fear!
