Thomas Klausner domm

Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 nearly grown-up sons, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, cook, taker-of-pictures and 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.

In this talk, I try to explain vue.js (and a bit of JavaScript) as my Perl brain understands it. Slides: Slides for the European Perl Conference 2018 in ...

Today I finally removed disqus from https://domm.plix.at and replaced it with my half-finished, read-only (for now) self-hosted solution (which will be the topic of my #TEPC18 talk)

Coding to pre90ies Beastie Boys is very hard between all the dancing, headbanging and remembering a shockingly large percentage of the lyrics - will have to switch to boring music to get some work done .. but I guess work can wait a bit!
