Well here we are at YAPC in Munich and it seems a perfect opportunity to begin writing my journal.
There was a meetup last night for those of us who arrived early and much beer was consumed. No surprises there I guess, although it was great to see Larry Wall there. Which other language designers hang out with the people who use their language ?
This morning I attended Mark Overmeer's talk on Mail::Box. It was a good grounding the why's and wherefore's of this mammoth module.
Right now I am sitting waiting for Schwern's Advanced Testing talk to begin, attached by a mains umbilical to the wall despite having a shiny Vaio and wireless networking.
Why ? Because those lovely people at Sony failed to deliver a new battery before I left the UK. Supposedly they're now shipping it directly to my hotel but I'm not holding my breath.
Funny how popular you become when you bring a 4-way power strip with you though...:-)
