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.

Linux.conf.au, Day 1

[ #32152 ]

Linux.conf.au, Day 1
I've got a number of journal entries prepared to continue the report on my dive adventures, but I haven't finished of the processing of the photographs to go with them. They'll be posted when I have a spare moment.

I've arrived in Sydney for Linux.conf.au, which is huge, and allegedly has 700-800 attendees. Every session I've been to, including the keynote/welcome, has been packed, with numerous people standing or sitting on the floor.

The regular conference-goers are here, as well as Nat Torkington, whom I didn't expect. I also shared a mini-bus from the airport with Andrew Tanenbaum.

I'm planning to spend much of the day in the hallway stream, although I'm attending a few of the presentations here and there. I'm also posting what few photographs I take to flickr. I daresay that I'm both a poor photographer and a flickr newbie, so don't expect anything too amazing.

Tonight is the speakers' dinner, which is on a boat. Tomorrow night is a party which I believe is sponsored by Google, Wednesday is the professional delegates and speakers' "networking session" (booze-up), and Friday night is the conference dinner. I'm planning to sleep Thursday night in order to be awake before 6am for the "speakers' adventure".
