I saw lots of talks I wanted to attend but missed. I saw names of speakers I wanted to meet but have not.
It is the same every year.
I go to YAPC. Go to good talks. Talk to a lot of good people. In the end I find out there were a lot of other good talks I missed and a lot of people I have not talked to, during the even.
YAPC is great
This year was not an exception either. It is a very good opportunity to meet new people and catch up with old friends. Even if I miss some others during the event.
Luckily there are many reports written by the attendees. There were a number of reports coming out during and right after the conference but for some reason a few more showed up in the last couple of days.
I feel these are very important posts. I can read how others saw the event and it provides a way for people who have not attended to see what went on.
It can also provide a tool for the organizers of upcoming events to show potential visitors what can they expect.
Let me link here to all the reports I found. If I missed some, please let me know! I'd be glad to link to all of them.
Barbie gave two talks at YAPC::EU 2011. Smoking The Onion - Tales of CPAN Testers and Perl Jam - How To Organise A Conference (and live to tell the tale). The latter is a book in progress you could help writing.
Plack basics - talk at YAPC::EU 2011. Leo Lapworth (Ranguard), one of the new White Camels gave a very good talk about the basics of Plack at YAPC::EU. He already published the slides.
