The people from SAMS were VERY generous and fun to hang out with. It's weird to meet your editor for the first time a year after your book is published.
I did actually ATTEND some sessions though. Heckled Geoff at his tutorial, which was very well presented. I didn't faze him at all.
Grabbed a drink with Dan Sugalski (Hi Dan!) and chatted about fleshing out the parrot embedding API. It was a really good conversation, and I think something useful may actually come of it.
My book signing went okay. This isn't a sysadmin conference, so there wasn't the highest level of interest. Got a couple of takers though, so that was fun. My signing was after Geoff Young and...Wil Wheaton of all people. What an odd bunch.
My extproc_perl talk went tremendously. The crowd was good and very interested in the project, and all my examples worked as designed. Can't ask for anything more than that.
Time to get to a talk...
