  • Thanks for the great writeup. Personally, I'm sad I missed YAPC for the first time that it ever came to my state. But there just wasn't enough leave time this year. :)

    Oh ... it scares the crud out of me that there was a talk on NLP. My first introduction to this was the flamewars on the associated article on Wikipedia. Hopefully it was less flame-ily presented. :)

    J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers

    So... on one hand we have CPAN Testers, and on the other we have PITA. Every pondered the idea of merging []
    • I always thought that was the intention! At least that's what I told everyone :) I was quite pleased in the interest in PITA, because as far as I'm concerned that is the real next phase of CPAN Testers. It's a step up the tool chain, with the benefit of representing many more environments than we do currently.

      There was some discussion around generating and working with VM images to use for CPAN testing, so hopefully some of those involved in the discussions will be checking out your latest posts :)

      • > I always thought that was the intention! At least that's what I told everyone :)

        Well, it is, sort of.

        It's just that there's some elements of CPAN Testers I utterly loath, mostly the reliance on email :)
        • That is likely to change in the future. Adam Foxson has some ideas in that regard :)

  • $30 isn't bad for quicktime pro on windows - it lets you export to any supported format.

    I've also used VLC successfully in the past - []
  • too bad i coulnd't make it..

    autioning future/pass T-Shirt is a good idea as it helps to promote the future conf. i never liked the silent aution though. but i guess it is to speeding up the process.

    I like what you have said about YAPC BOF. I hope what have discussed in the YAPC BOF can be recored for future organizers.

  • Thanks for the write-up on the conference! I had actually planned to go, but then found out in conflicted with a job (that I really needed): such is life.

  • Wow, great write-up! I didn't have a chance to catch any of the talks, so I look forward to the videos. Regarding the organizers having not attended a YAPC, Will and I actually attended last year in Chicago. I already had plans to bid before attending, so it was good that I was able to get $work to send me. Other than that, I haven't really been to any major conferences.

    • Ah, I thought you'd said you hadn't been to a YAPC. Oops. Still, I hope organising one hasn't put you off and that we'll be seeing you at many more in the future ;)
