YAPC this year was great.
I met a lot of people I only knew on the interwebs, went to some great talks, and got my ass heckled. I enjoyed every moment of it.
Matt Trout gave a great ironman forfeit talk, Stevan Little gave a great keynote on Tuesday, Nick Perez gave (6) great talks, 2 of which I was able to attend, Jesse Leuhrs showed me how to extend Moose like a boss, Chris Prather told me why MooseX::POE sucks and why I shouldn't use it, and I learned some Klingon from Paul Fenwick. Jay Shirley talked about a sensible way to use templates to control your UI, keeping designers AND programmers happy, and Cory Watson talked about selling Moose to your bosses and managing your data verification stack with Data::Manager.
My talks went mostly okay. Intro to Catalyst was a bit of a farce, but hey! We all learned something that day: Catalyst makes things get done faster. Thumbit was fun to talk about, and I actually got a good deal of hacking done on the code to make it (almost) work. Google Summer of Code will always be near and dear to my heart, my first talk, which is about my first dip into the magical waters of open source development.
I bid YAPC2010 a fond farewell, and shout outs to every one I met and everyone I got to hang out with after hours.
Until next year!
