I haven't been to OSCON since 2005. It kept getting less interesting without getting less expensive. This year, though, OSCON looks really good -- and I'm not just saying that because I'll be giving my Perl 5.10 talk. There are a lot of talks, both Perl and otherwise, that look really interesting. I'm glad to see that Perl is so well represented this year, with talks about new Perl systems that I know can really improve Perl software development.
I won't be there for the whole thing, but I'll be there for a few days, and I hope to walk away gorged with new ideas.
