Things I learned at YAPC::Europe 2015 in Granada
took place in Granada, a very nice and laid back city. I went there after two weeks of holidays in Spain and Morocco. Now I'm sitting at a rather touristy joint waiting for my Churros & Chocolate - a nice way to end several rather intense days in Spain. YAPC::Europe
I did one talk and one lightning talk:
The thing I liked most about
is the amount of actually used YAPC::Europe 2015 Perl6 code shown in various talks.
As usual, here's the list of things I learned (or rather, remembered to write down):
How to solve the Tapas Crawl Load Balancing Problem
Great thing about technology: It will always give you
an answer (this is not the Gihon river you're looking for) ( aurum) The humanities are made of corner cases (aurum again)
It's sad that people still need to be told to use bcrypt/scyrpt (
leont) There's cold rain and free grey in London (mdk in a lightning announcement)
SSIs (ServerSideIncludes, if you skipped the 90ies) are in theory Turing complete, but in fact a pain in the ass (can't remember who said that) "The Perl Conference"
is a better name than "YAPC" (ditto)
IRC is a cesspool where conversations go to die (but irc.perl.org isn't!) (ditto) Unicorn hunts are to expensive, for everyone (hunter and huntee (aka prey)) (
Jessica Rose) People rather watch a JS animation of a bouncing ball then learn about how the universe works (
Florence Okoye) If all your tests are passing you don't have enough tests. (
Lee Johnson) Sufficiently advanced insanity is indistinguishable from a good idea (
Albert Pinkham Ryder practiced the PHP-method of paint mixing ( stevan) Embrace the chaos! (stevan again)
The Perl source code is too ugly to be considered art, not even art brut (Nicholas during stevan's talk)
The Spiders of Mirkwood invented the Wood Wide Web (
TimToady) Each team member reserves the right to die and screw up the project schedule (also TimToady)
People are using up all the words, just to name web frameworks (
dotandimet) We need more Japanese talks like the one by
lestrrat, watch the madness here There is a free novel hidden in the test suit of a
CPAN module ( jmerelo) Fresh churros are damn hot! (domm's fingers)
Thank You! goes out to the orgas, the speakers, the attendees, and of course the sponsors!
See you all next year in
