YAPC::Europe 2007 report: day 3
My Lightning Talk on cpandeps went down really well, although as José pointed out, I need to fix it to take account of File::Copy being broken. I also need to talk to Domm after the conference is over to see if I can get dependency information from CPANTS as well as from META.yml files.
There were lots of other good lightning talks. Dmitri Karasik's regexes for doing OCR, Juerd Waalboer's Unicode::Semantics, and Renée Bäcker's Win32::GuiTest were especially noteworthy.
Richard Foley's brief intro to the perl debugger was also useful. Unfortunately Hakim Cassimally's talk was about debugging web applications, which I'd not noticed on the schedule, so I didn't stay for that.
And finally, Mark Fowler's grumble about why perl sucks (and what to do about it) had a few interesting little things in it. I am having vaguely sick ideas about mixing some of that up with an MJD-stylee parser.
At the auction I paid €250 to have the Danish organisers of next year's YAPC::Europe wear the Swedish flag on their foreheads. This, I should point out, was Greg's idea. I would never be so evil on my own.
