Well, that’s put the cat among the pigeons1.
Of the commentary I read, Breda O’Brien in the Irish Times rang most true for me.
If you enjoy his music and can possibly get a ticket for one of his world tour dates, do. Now. Stop reading and go buy them now.
Got your tickets yet?
I’ll be speaking at the Irish Open Source Technology Conference this year. It’s on at Dublin’s CineWorld Complex, from June 18th for three days. They’re running a 2-for-1 offer on tickets at the moment.
I’ll be speaking about something Perl’ish, naturally.
The “Perl Myths” presentation I gave at IWTC earlier this year turned out to be a hit. (At least, it was after the event. There were less than ten people in the room at the time, including me! Perl clearly isn’t a hot topic among Irish web developers.)
My blog post, with embedded slides and video, has topped 7400 hits, plus another 3000 or so views on slideshare.
So I’m going all high-tech. No more “camcorder perched on a chair at the back” for me!
