Dutch Perl Workshop, part 2

[ #35802 ]

After staying at Wendy and Liz' (and visting a cave (!) in the Dutch mountains (!!)) I stayed a night at Mark & Cleos place.

Their 1.5 years old son Tycho is very cute (but I'm still happy that my kids are already older...). I managed to get most of my slides done while staying there.

On Thursday evening we prepared the venue for the Workshop (including setting up Wendys huge collection of Perl books). Then a aprox 10 attendees had some chinese food at Marks place. Then we went back to the venue, for more preparation, Fluxx and Whisk(e)y.

A tiny bit after midnight I was done with all my slides (even for the talk I only agreed upon a few hours ago, and a lightning talk), so I started working on Acme::ReturnValue. After finishing a first version I want to bed way to late.

The workshop itself was very nice. Jonathans talk on Perl6 Internals was very interesting (and it prompted me to install Perl6 on my laptop - hard to belive, but things like

perl6 -e 'say "Hello World!"'


I used my new wireless presenter thingy to remote-control my computer during my presentation, which was very nice.

Here are my talks (and their slides):

The evening was spend (as usual) with Fluxx, Whisk(e)y and Cake. I very much enjoyed my stay in the Netherlands. Everybody was very hospitable and I had a lod of fun speaking fake dutch

But I also look forward to beeing home again and spend some time with my family...
