Trip to FOSDEM & Dutch Perl Workshop, part 1

[ #35766 ]

After the nice 0100000 party on Thursday (and a nice loot) I took the sleeper train to Köln on Friday night. By some very lucky coincidence I got a 4-person compartment on my own - yay!

The next day I walked a bit through the central area of Köln (around the Cathredral). Quite nice for a german city... I discovered a space invader and a fake medevial castle on a boat (some kind of museum).

In Brussels, I went straigth to FOSDEM where I met a few Perl people (Mark, Juerd, Leon, ..) at the Perl 6 talk. I spend most of the day talking with them. In the evening we had yet another birthday "party" (together with Leon) - and to my big surprise I discovered that I actually like Cherry Beer (because it doesn't taste like beer I guess)

Sunday night I drove with Wendy & Liz to their place, where I'm staying now. It's very nice and they are very hospitable. Yesterday Jonathan arrived from Kiev, and we did a small bicycle tour around the neighbourhood. I'm switching between working, preparing slides, chatting & playing Fluxx. Very nice...

  • That’s where I live! You should have pinged me. Well, had you known…

    Oh well.

    • Hm, I didn't tell dopplr that I stopped in Köln, and I don't know if you're on dopplr anyways.

      But as I only stayed one hour (from 8:30 to 9:30) I doubt that meeting up would have made much sense (especially so early in the morning)

      Maybe next time :-)
      • Ah. Your “walked around” bit sounded as if you were here for longer than that, hence my exclamation.

        No, I’m not on Dopplr… I guess I should be, huh? :-)
