YAPC::NA 2007 is over...

[ #33647 ]

My pictures are up on Flickr already, including the early morning "fire drill" at the Hilton on my last day.

I had about 30 people in my 2-day "master class", where I presented "Perl Second Best Practices" (my take on PBP) and "Persistent Perl Data" (a survey of simple persistence, DBI, Class::DBI, and Rose::DB::Object).

I'm beat, heading home, but no rest for the weary, as I'll be on the road for six of the next seven weeks.

  • Oh, please put that talk up. I would dearly love to see it.
    • I second that. But it sounds like it was a full class, so I'd understand if you're wanting to retain it so as to keep its value up and turn it into profit or something. :)

      J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers
      • Yeah, I'm cool with making all the short talks Creative Commons, but the long talks have to be our bread and butter. I put a week or so of time into it (on spec), so now I have to sell it a half-dozen times before I can get that money back to even break even.

        I am thinking of doing one or two upcoming articles on "Where I respectfully disagree with Professor Conway", which would be the meat of my unique contribution to the material that is obviously based on PBP. So, watch my columns [] for some updates.

        • Randal L. Schwartz
        • Stonehenge
        • That is cool. I did not realize you did that or I would not have asked. I guess I will have to hope one of your talks takes you to the DC area. : )
