What am I working on right now? Probably the Sprog project [sourceforge.net].

Wellington Perl Mongers had a fun evening last week - our annual Lightning Talk meeting. As usual the talk schedule was looking pretty thin in the days leading up to the event but with a bit of encouragement people did step up and the evening went well. The talks covered a range of Perl modules; a bit on Erlang and CouchDB (thanks Lenz); mountain biking and mapping (Donovan); and Perl on the iPhone (Tobi). We even got to see the beginnings of Matt's robot army (doesn't look like we have anything to fear yet) and Srdjan gave us his sermon entitled "If statements considered harmful". I asked Matt to take some photos. The lighting wasn't great so not many came out but here's a montage.
As a group, it's clear that there's one key thing we can all do to improve our delivery - turn and face the audience. The one exception pictured is the guy speaking without slides.
