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.con f.au- Aftermath

[ #32266 ]

Linux.con f.au - Aftermath
My talk on Thursday at linux.conf.au was very well attended, and received a very good reception indeed. For both Thursday and Friday I seemed to have no lack of attendees wishing to ask or comment on my talk; it seems my biggest failure was that I didn't come equipped with sufficient business cards, and I found myself having to start rationing them.

Friday morning I participated in the Speakers' Adventure. I'd heard a variety of reports on what this would be; the official documentation suggested heights, but Adam Kennedy had suggested it involved a swim at the aquarium, and Jamie on the organisation committee also backed up this story. As such, I arrived at Sydney Tower with mask, snorkel, and underwater camera. Thanks guys, they were really useful 250m in the air. ;)

The keynote on Friday was presented by Kathy Sierra. Essentially a talk on how to grow communities, Kathy covered how we're all fitted out with "legacy brains" that still react to stimulae that were important when we were living in caves. Kathy put her knowledge of legacy brains to good use in her talk, providing a good example of how presentations should be done.
