Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 kids, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, no longer dreadlocked and 33 years old

I'm also head of Vienna.pm [pm.org], maintainer of the CPANTS [perl.org] project, member of the TPF Grants Commitee [perlfoundation.org] and the YAPC Europe Foundation [yapceurope.org].

I've got stuff on CPAN [cpan.org], held various talks [domm.plix.at] and organised YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna [yapceurope.org].

Vienna.pm vs London.pm

[ #35093 ]

The short story

After seeing London.pm take over the YAPC::Europe 2008 stats again, I suggested starting a group called not_London.pm, which should be able to beat London.pm on the scoreboard. Due to a traitor on #austria.pm, Greg learned of this plan and consequently declared war on Vienna.pm (As a point of order, I regard the formation of !London.pm as the act of war - Greg). Which we of course accepted.

The "war" will take place at YAPC::Europe 2008 in Copenhagen and consist of three rounds of battle, "fought" by the leaders of each group, that is Greg McCarroll for London.pm and Thomas Klausner for Vienna.pm

  1. Playing a cowbell version of guitar hero (To be created by domm and Greg) while drinking white wine between rounds (Austrians have a high tolerance for this apparently - Greg).
  2. A cooking contest
  3. Arm wrestling

  • As a part of the organizing team, I must hereby inform you that Copenhagen.pm will be neutral in this "war".

    Looking at the 3 rounds of battle I have a few comments.

    As for the cowbell battle, this will most certainly break several international conventions, so we will attempt to provide innocent bystanders with the proper protective
