fosdemSo far, the reactions to the Perl presence at Fosdem  have been great. The dev-room was more than packed most of the day, the Perl booth was by far the nicest there (biggest Perl library in the world, huge and small camels, wall sized banners, books, stickers, wine from the city of Perl (!), …) and Larry’s big announcement in a packed 1400 sits auditorium made waves: Christmas got a date.

So a big thank you for everyone helping out: the speakers, the dev-room (Theo, Geoff!) and booth volunteers and of course the audience!

According to the Fosdem people, the videos should be online Real Soon ™…

Perl devroom @FOSDEM2012: photos April 27, 2012

Finally I found the time to “develop” my Perl dev-room @ FOSDEM 2012 pictures (convert from camera RAW files to jpg). It was a very nice event. If you missed the Perl dev-room in the past year, you should really visit us in 2013. Or even better, give a talk.

In the pictures above you see Nicholas talking about Moose. He forgot his mac-VGA adaptor (ahum) so he ended up writing code on the blackboard (“the loudest syntax checker on earth”). Marc mixed some Haskell in his talk while Flavio showed some Javascript-powered Perl. Clément presented a Perl SSO solution and Erik showed us a open source accounting solution. Stefan introduced the PerlCommerce platform, while Ævar (a famous guy being the most mentioned name in Programming Perl, 4th ed!) talks about git-deploy (or rather git-undeploy :) ). Marius explained the marriage of Moose and MemCached.

As the organizer of the Perl dev-room, I had to attend to a few things during the talks. My excuses for not taking pictures of Mark’s and Guillaume’s talk (I was able to attend most of it, though). Sadly,  I didn’t had the time to photograph our fabulous Perl stand (although I have some pictures from last year): Wendy, Liz, Eric and all the other volunteers did a great job.

Thank you for a successful Perl FOSDEM presence.
