YAPC::Europe 2008 nightmare

[ #35087 ]

The other night I was starting to fill in information in our organizers Wiki somewhat late in the evening, I jumped directly to bed and experienced my first YAPC::Europe 2008 nightmare.

It was horrible...

The venue was too big so we had to walk and walk and walk to locate something (pretty basic nightmare pattern) - things where all chaotic, but running along. I guess that part was not a nightmare, just social realism sneaking in.

brian d foy did not attend and I could not get anybody to tell me why, the dream ended before involving any travel to Iceland and any volcanoes or marathons.

I guess this will not the last nightmare I will experience on this topic, but I will attempt to avoid doing Wiki stuff just prior to going to bed.

  • Sounds like a lot of fun, I am up for it. Of course a soak in the excellent hot springs needs to happen after :)
  • We (former YAPC orgas) usually don't talk about this in public (especially during call for proposals for next years YAPC), but having nightmares is just on part of the job description. I sure had some, but the "best" YAPC nightmare probably was experienced by Jose [perl.org], who even shared it with the audience in the opening talk of YAPC::Europe 2005 in Braga.

    • I remember Jose's presentation in Braga. I even experienced nightmares for the first few Nordic Perl Workshops, but I thinking that my nightmares this time are not about organizing the event, but something completely different, I am however still interpreting. The theory is however work and Christmas stress related, so there is nothing to worry about since it is like this every year at this time.
