Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

London Perl Workshop 2005!

[ #27769 ]

The London Perl Workshop 2005 happened on Saturday. Contrary to popular opinion, it wasn't timed to coincide with the introduction of more relaxed drinking laws - but we did manage to drink in a pub until 1am!

I really enjoyed the conference - around 100 people turned up early on a Saturday morning. Greg's talk at the beginning set an interesting theme: stop messing around talking about things and actually JFDI. We can knock up little things in Perl which astound non-techy people, you just need to actually start doing it instead of merely thinking about it or having arguments about frameworks. If just a few people took that message home then the conference will have succeeded.
