I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

A week away in Sydney (working)

[ #23714 ]

A week away in Sydney (working)
Spent the last week in Sydney, presenting introductory Perl courses to a mixed class of students. We had nine students, and I believe they were representing eight different organisations. An interesting tidbit from the class is that the boarding passes used by my airline are printed and processed using Perl I even got a peek at the source code.

Any class over eight students usually warrants a second trainer, and so I was fortunate enough to have Jacinta assisting me.

Normally when I travel for training I find myself with a little free time in the evening; however this particular trip had a busy social calendar. One night was spent visiting some old friends who have recently had a child, and the other was spent with Sydney Perl Mongers.

Syd.PM certainly know how to have a good time, especially judging from my grin in the photo. We had Robert Spier (from perl.org) visiting, and to cap off the evening the New South Wales chapter of SAGE-AU were also at the same pub. When it got too late Jacinta had to almost drag me away, reminding me that I really did have to be up and teaching at 9am the next day.

As always, I'm very happy to be back at home, and I'm looking forward to a weekend where I'm not standing on my feet for 10+ hours a day.
