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.

End of financial year

[ #25429 ]

End of financial year
It's the end of financial year, and everyone and everything is just a little more hectic because of it. I have a ton of deadlines: negotiations with our bank, taxation matters, a stupidly big pile of paperwork, and a number of conference and magazine-article related matters.

However my real task for the day is clearing my desk, and making sure that there isn't anything that we really want to take advantage of in the 2004-05 financial year. Any spare time will be spent catching up on accounting and tax matters.

The good news is that despite the busy time was year, I was still able to go out to dinner last night with about a dozen very good friends, and I was still able to sleep until the gloriously late time of 10am. One of the distinct advantages of running one's own business is flexibility of hours.

On the matter of running a business, I'll be presenting a short yet amusing talk on starting a business at the Open Source Developers Club on the 13th July, 2005. This will be a sneak-preview of my paper and presentation for the Australian System Administrators Conference in Perth later this year.

      Absolutely, although usually my talks are uusally revised and re-presented a few times before eventually reaching the web. And sometimes I need to be harrassed to publish slides...

      However for more instant gratification, my presentation on "Whirlwind Web Development" that was presented at SAGE-VIC, Melbourne.PM, Sydney.PM, and Canberra.PM, should be available on-line within the next week. It's the pretty one with all the photos of Ascidians [wikipedia.org].
