I have just uploaded the slides from the Moose talk I gave yesterday at YAPC::EU. They are a revised version of a talk I gave at the Perl Seminiar NY earlier this year, I think this version flows a little better and I was pretty happy with how the talk went. I was hoping to include more information about roles into this talk, but there was not time. Maybe the next talk.
MIME::Lite is, in my opinion, the worst of the popular email object modules. It's buggy, has a lousy interface, and just does awful things. I'd go so far as to say that the number one mistake I see in new email modules is a reliance on MIME::Lite instead of Mail::Message or Email::MIME.
That said, I've just released the first non-developer release of MIME::Lite in over four years!
The talks are on going, schedule got some last minute updates. Cog gave us a fun keynote on how to socialize in order to get most out of a YAPC. Larry Wall gave his current vision on scripting languages. Matt Trout had a full audience for an enthusiatic talk about the community around DBIx::Class. Hackathons are ongoing and domm is preparing videos of the welcome night. So the first day looks like a win and we are happy to see how it will go on.. :)
Sydney Perl Mongers - This Tuesday
I'm up in Sydney until the end of Thursday teaching our Programming Perl course. Tomorrow night (Tuesday 28th August 2007) I'll be presenting an illustrated history of failure at Sydney Perl Mongers I'd love to see you there, even if you have absolutely no interest in Perl.

That Makefile builds all of the languages, or I can build them separately by using the Makefile in their directories. Once I have the .pbc file, I can tell parrot to use it to parse my script:APL cola pheme
BASIC dotnet plumhead
HQ9plus ecmascript pugs
LANGUAGES.STATUS.pod forth punie
Makefile jako pynie
PIR lazy-k regex
WMLScript lisp scheme
Zcode lua t
abc m4 tap
amber nqp tcl
befunge ook unlambda
bf parrot_compiler urm
The t/ directory contains examples of what I can do with NQP, and adding to those tests is a good way to get started in the Perl 6 effort."./parrot languages/nqp/nqp.pbc hello.nqp
