  • Hi Dave,

    thanks for sharing your slides. It's great that I can at least track some of the talks from YAPC if I can't come.

    Additionally, I think your thoughts on advocacy are pretty much dead on.

  • I used that to re-create an Oracle schema that I was moving from an Access db.

    Any chance of putting those into PDF format?
  • Stop being fucking rude to newbies!

    Did you say that? That is the one thing I don't like about Perl and it has nothing to do with the language! I have been doing some Tcl work lately. Now Tcl is a cool language and it has some perception baggage as well. What I like about Tcl mostly? The community is the friendliest and helpful of any (including the Ruby one) that I have participated in bar none. That goes a looong way with someone trying to pick up a language.

    • Did you say that?

      I was going to. But when that point appeared on the slide, everyone laughed, so I didn't actually have to say it out loud.

      I got the point across tho' :-)

  • Q1: Since you have a definate opinion of what an ORM should do, is there one in the Perl community that you prefer?

    Q2: I think you are probably too busy to create the ultimate ORM, are you helping one of the other ORM projects to realize the Perl ORM nirvana?

    • Q1: Since you have a definate opinion of what an ORM should do, is there one in the Perl community that you prefer?

      Nope. Not yet. However, in the 48 hours since I gave that talk, I've heard a _lot_ of opinions from other people. I'll definitely be looking closely at DBIx::Class [cpan.org] over the next few weeks.

      Nope. Although I rant a lot, it doesn't really annoy me
