Day Two got off to a bit of a slow start due to a very, very good time at the party last night. The night was long and amazing, the Museum of Art was a wonderful location, outdoors with music and lots of playful lights. We did say that YAPCs are fun right? Well, they’re very fun!
This amazing event has a lot of great talks, but there’s so much value in just meeting new people or old friends to chat and debate projects, interests or just have some fun together. This is what makes the Perl community amazing. And the first talk of the day just showed how international and close the community really is - The State of the Velociraptor.
We heard a lot of good things during the State of the Velaciraptor talk, (besides Sawyer) from Sue Spence from London.pm (active since 1998), a lot of good things about meta::cpan and intel about houston.pm from Todd Rinaldo (who had a 15 hour flight all the way to Cluj). Sawyer gave a few insights about Dancer 2, actually a lot of insights, what happened there was a lot of hard work, dedication and commitment.
It all ended with Tina Muller’s talk about Berlin.pm. It was great to hear how local perl communities work and get organized in cities all over the world. This is really the fabrics that makes the whole of the Perl community what it is today.
Here’s the schedule for the full day two of YAPC::EU:
The Imager::Trim talk from Jussi Kinnula was very exciting, it was great to learn more about this module and its method. Check out more about it on meta:cpan.
Lunch was delicious and revigorating. And delicious again.
The day carried on with:
The startups talk from Nigel Hamilton was something different, but very informative. Startups are born every day and only a few of them survive more than a year, but they represent a new level of innovation that pushed the tech world and not just that, forward.
There were a lot of great talks to attend, a bit of everything for everybody, which was great. Day Two checked!Tweet
