It's a huge fun to watch how quickly geeks can fill a fleet of buses. It seems most still lean towards Perl 5 as the process was quite stack based with a _very_ full head and an almost empty tail.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:) The Weingut Schilling owners have a good variety of white wines. They run soon out of beer and proposed instead Schnaps.</p><p>The third day finished with the traditional auction. For non-native speakers it took some time to see what was going on. domm invited for a very nice after conf party.</p><p>Anyway thanks to all visitors for coming. You made this Yapc lively. I'm very proud reading statements on irc "it was the greatest ever<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:&gt;".</p> maks 2007-08-31T12:29:33+00:00 journal yapceu07 http://use.perl.org/~maks/journal/34247?from=rss <p>The <a href="http://vienna.yapceurope.org/ye2007/i">YAPC::Europe 2007</a> in Vienna is quite happy to announce that almost all the announced people registered succesfuly this morning (Funny batch processing of quite some peoples).

Cog gave us a fun keynote on how to socialize in order to get most out of a YAPC. Larry Wall gave his current vision on scripting languages. Matt Trout had a full audience for an enthusiatic talk about the community around DBIx::Class. Hackathons are ongoing and <a href="http://use.perl.org/~domm/">domm</a> is preparing videos of the welcome night. The Selenium talk by Barbie got high prise. gwolf did a very good presentation about the challenges of the Debian Perl group. So the first day looks like a win and we are happy to see how it will go on..<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)</p> maks 2007-08-28T13:41:22+00:00 journal austrian perl workshop 2005 http://use.perl.org/~maks/journal/25303?from=rss <p>The <a href="http://conferences.yapceurope.org/apw2005/">Austrian Perl Workshop</a> was a great success. There were very interesting talks about Perl use in general, the Pugs present and the Perl 6 furture. The ambiance was very professional -a bit nerdier than last years apw.</p><p>The T-Shirt Design is great. Really like to wear it my shiny red thing. It rained for the dinner, so we couldn't stay outside. Anyway breakfast and lunch was delicious. Only the coffe was particular bad.</p><p>Thanks <a href="http://use.perl.org/~domm/">domm</a> for the organisation!</p> maks 2005-06-21T18:54:52+00:00 journal austrian perl workshop http://use.perl.org/~maks/journal/17525?from=rss From 20th to 22th May vienna.pm presents the first <a href="http://vienna.pm.org/en_workshop.html">Austrian Perl Workshop</a>.
