Perl blog post #40
This week I’ve been off with The Mother, her parents, her sister, our 3 human children, and our 1 canine child, on simultaneous vacation and work conference. This year’s YAPC was in Salt Lake City, a mere 700 miles from our home and 550 from that of the grandparents and aunt. So we met in the middle(ish) and rented a small vacation house. I rode the train into the conference every day and brought the boys in at night for social activities. If you’re interestd in the mostly technical details of my experience, feel free to check out my Other Blog. But there’s also some non-technical stuff buried in there, so hopefully it’s of some value even to my non-geeky readership. Assuming there’s any readership at all out there, despite my repeated warnings to the contrary.
But in any event, my YAPC reflections is all you get this week. The vacation part was quite lovely, to be sure, and I’m quite glad we got away for a while, and quite glad we got to see the closest things I have to in-laws again. Still, it’s an exhausting week: driving 1500 miles or so, sleeping not in one’s own bed, dietary changes (e.g. a hell of a lot more fast food than I’ve been eating lately), dealing with multitudes and multitudes of people. So these few paragraphs are about all I can muster at the moment. Next week I hope to return to my salad series.
