OSCON 2008 Day 0 : Summary

[ #36982 ]

Ok, Day 0 of OSCON 2008 is over.

It was a good day. I learned about 3 good things from the Mastering Perl tutorial. I am still interested in Test Driven Development but I can't fault Josh for my false expectations.

I got to have a few beers and chat with some fellow attendees: Mike whose family business is printing services in Des Moines, some guys that work for McClatchy in Raleigh (sorry I can't recall your names at the moment[update: Daniel and Craig]), Jason that works for Texas A&M and Dave who works at the National Gallery of Art. Mostly Perl guys but all who will use whatever tool to get the job done.

So I will call it a very good day. I had planned to not be so sociable (missing my wife and kids a lot) but I had a good time talking with everyone. Besides, conferences are most fun when you meet other people and sparks fly.

I expect more good things tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to meeting all of the friends I haven't met yet tomorrow.
