  • I don't have any insider information to share, but my impression is that because no one will be going to OSCON for the Perl talks this year, there won't be very many Perl talks. It's the same reason not to publish books on Perl; no one bought the new Perl books not published in 2003 and 2004.

    • Except that I know a lot of people won't go to OSCON *because* it's been getting weaker in Perl content every year.

      I don't know all the numbers, and am not blaming anyone. Just saying that it's unfortunate that The Perl Conference is, effectively, dead.
      • Yes, and people stopped buying Perl books when publishers stopped publishing them, thus proving that people don't buy Perl books. You (not you as in Chris Nandor, but you as in my evil private corporate overloards) can use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true, as long as you're willing to confuse cause and effect.

      • I went last year, because it was the first chance I had to get to the US, and so I could present. I really enjoyed it, and I thought there was quite a bit of meat there. I even ended up flitting between three Perl talks at the same time at one point.

        I'm not going this year, not because of the talks, but because I can't afford to be out of the country for BOTH of OSCON and YAPC, and so having done one of them I decided I should probably see the other. Also, Chicago is a new place, and I like new places.
