  • As an attendee, I must say that I enjoyed it quite a lot and learned much. I would heartily endorse spending the money and actually attending when the UOP rolls into the town nearest you.

    I know a number of people who attended the Perl 101 class and they all felt they had learned quite a bit. I personally attended Damian Conway's OOP session which was every bit as good as his quite fantastic book.

    I also attended both of his less serious speeches, the one on Quantum::Superpositions(the module is available on CPAN []) and Perligata speech at the SPUG. Both did amazing things to perl, Perligata's use of Source Filters to transform perl into a language based on suffixes ($next became a nextum when used as data, nexto as a target) not on word positions, was particularly amazing. Both speeches made you think seriously about the adaptability of perl.

    At the end of the Perligata speech (which was much more heavily attended than the Q::S speech) there was a section of Q&A for the collected perl luminaries in which there was a particularly interesting section on the possible directions of, and the need for Perl 6.

    On the whole the UOP's trip through town was pretty darn cool.
