last weekend my co-workers and I went to the Belgian Perl Workshop 09. I attended the following presentations:
Painless XSLT with Perl, by andrew shitov. Was interesting, even if I don't do any XSLT anymore. Again, some ideas might be used for work.
Regular Expressions and Unicode Guru, by abigail. Feel better to know that I'm not the only one suffering with unicode in Perl ;). Learn some stuff like how to create a custom character classe, etc.
Catalyst, by matt trout. Ok, we're using Catalyst at work for our webservices. So we allready know about catalyst, but we were curious. And as i was hoping, we learn some nice tweaks. We discovered Catalyst::Model::Adaptor, so we don't have to do some horrible stuff in our Controller any more, and some other interesting stuff were put in this talk. And matt is a really good speaker, manage to keep an audiance amused and interested.
Catalyst & AWS, by matt trout. Once again, a really good talk by matt. Some good advices, and a lot of fun.
We didn't stay long for the social event in the evening; we had booked a hotel in bruxelles. But i'm glad that we were able to get to this perl workshop, it was well-organised, good talks, meet nice people, and learn some stuff. All in all, a good day :)
