YAPC Time!

[ #540 ]

Off to YAPC tomorrow, so its packing time tonight. I have a relatively small todo list that includes:

  • Dig out conference t-shirts
  • Save HTML version of presentation
  • Pray that Netscape doesn't crash
  • Remember my Passport

I'm at work during the day tomorrow so its important that I don't forget this stuff, hence me putting it here.

On another note I'm wondering why sub BEGIN {} and sub END {} don't stick around after compilation -- I don't see any benefit in having them disappear from the symbol table, and without looking into it, I think it would be useful for things like attributes inside mod_perl (which don't work currently).

And finally I'm very close to getting the Fotango Pro application server into a ready-to-release state. This is going to be open sourced and available soon. Its been quite a hassle to find the time to squeeze everything I want into it, but at the same time squeeze all of the Fotango specific stuff out of it. There is quite a lot of cool stuff in it and I'm hoping people will use it. Anyway, I'll write more about that when its available.

Until next time...
