Nine Views of Mark Jason Dominus

[ #12384 ]
There's only one OSCON talk that I will move heaven and earth to attend. It's Nine Views of Mark Jason Dominus. He's giving nine lightning talks back to back.

Nine? Yes, nine. They are:

  • The coolest Perl project I ever did
  • Should I release a new version every month?
  • The failure of subclassing on CPAN
  • How not to ask for help from strangers
  • How to progress
  • Don't give up just because it's NP-complete
  • On giving a man a fish
  • Why Lisp will never win
  • A message for the Aliens

  • I thought you had assigned yourself to attend Intro to Perl Testing [] as penance [].

    • I won't be moving heaven and earth to get to that, though. It may be part of the terms of my parole ... :-)

      (Negligent Testing Causing Embarrassment, a class B misdemeanour punishable by internment in the tutorial. No time off for good behaviour.)

  • Video online? (Score:3, Interesting)

    Are you planning to make a video of this available online after the show?

    I just won't be able to go to OSCON, but I would so like to see MJD give this talk.

    Preferably something like the Judo class - it let you feel that you were almost there, just so much that the envy of the ones who got there was even bigger.

    • I won't be recording it (ENOCAMERA) but I'm sure it'll be a high priority for the people who do bring their cameras.
