My Recent Perl Events (Or: Perl Without Programming)

[ #27408 ]

I gave a couple of talks at the Nordic Perl Workshop a week and a half ago, organised the first Milton Keynes Perl Mongers meeting last week, and there's a London.pm social on Thursday.

I really enjoyed the Nordic Workshop. I agree with jonasbn's comments: having a single track with around forty atendees worked well.

Both my talks went well. As I get more practice speaking I find myself feeling more confident and relaxed. The audience laughed at my jokes and asked good questions. Even without bribery.

Our first MiltonKeynes.pm social meeting took place last Thursday and five of us showed up. Not bad for a first attempt.

Then there's the London.pm social in two days. I should go because I've missed the last few and haven't seen everyone for a while.

It's easy to forget I started using Perl to write code when I've ended up speaking, organising meetings and using it as an excuse to go to the pub. Even at work, I've found myself spending more time organising and writing up meetings, determining requirements and talking to people than writing code. I guess I'll keep going with the flow and see where it all ends up.
