Thomas Klausner domm

Just in case you like to know, I'm currently spending my time as a father of 2 grown-up sons, Perl hacker who is not afraid to touch other tech, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, cook & taker-of-pictures - while being 40+ years old but too lazy to update my profile once a year.

I'm also head of Vienna.pm, member of the TPF Grants Commitee and the YAPC Europe Foundation and previous maintainer of the CPANTS project.

I've got stuff on CPAN, held various talks and organise the Austrian Perl Workshops and YAPC::Europe 2007.
