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'.

YAPC::Asia 2008 Day 0

[ #36418 ]

Yesterday was the day before YAPC::Asia 2008 Tokyo and it was an evening of overflow talks. Which also happened to have free beer and weird snacks.

It started of with the Soozy Conference. It began with a talk on scaffold, which was really about thousands of lines of XML, flex and generating server-side Java based upon HTML.

Then there were a few lightning talks, about lift, a Scala web framework (Scala is the future), a geek magician with his playing card scanner beta, and yet another web application framework (it's too hard to write a WAF, so they spun out HTTP::Engine and HTTPx::Dispatcher). There was a quick presentation on HTTP::Engine (id:dropdb, "middleware is not a cool name") and a great Flash animation about Perl.

Then it was time for RejectConf, which talks about jQuery internals, higher-order JavaScript (wait, this is a Perl conference?) and a talk about Devel::DFire (something like DTrace for Perl).

An excellent beginning.
