Last month I attended the Nordic Perl Workshop.
It was definitely one of the best Perl conferences I've been to. Fun all around, great people, and well organized.
Perl people often joke about JIT slide writing. Well this time I was a good boy and wrote my slides in the morning, way before my talk. What I did write at the last minute was the slide software. More on this soon.
I was actually productive during the hackathon (usually I'm only productive because of hackathons, afterwords). mst and I found and fixed some hairy Moose issues involving metaclass compatibility and the immutable code generation. I also ported over Rakudo's MMD resolution algorithm to MooseX::Types::VariantTable, so that rafl could finish this bit of awesome. Lastly, I had my hair set on fire by Ingy.
