Had a great time at the GPW. Met lots of interesting folks, saw some good talks (although probably didnt understand as much of them as I should given my crappy German skills), and had fun hanging out and meeting some of the people who I only know through the internet.
My talk went pretty well, it probably could be improved some, but considering it was the first time Ive presented to an audience of that size, (about 80-100 people I guess) I think it went just fine.
Annoyingly there are still some bugs in the Perl5 regex engine so a few things that should have worked didnt, but well thats life.
I probably shouldn't have drunk so much on the second day. I passed the point of being able to say no to more alcohol, and just might have made a fool out of myself blabbing on about my days as a courier in london...
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the next perl gathering and hanging out with folks some more.
Cheers to the GPW organizers for doing a great job, and to eveyrbody that participated.
