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'.

FOSDEM

[ #35798 ]
FOSDEM last weekend was huge - 4000 geeks and hundreds of speakers. Lots of interesting talks in the hallways and I particularly liked the JRuby talk as an example of how an open source project can continue without its founders. I really didn't like Patrick's Perl 6 talk: a lot of it was along the lines of "Perl 5 doesn't have this, but Perl 6 will" with examples which Perl 5.10 actually has, or "Perl 6 has feature X (e.g. threads) built in from the beginning" which is completely untrue. It was a bit sad really, but at least the room was mostly full so people haven't completely written off Perl.
