On the first days of October (1-2) I was in Crimea (beautiful peninsula on the Black Sea). There was a beta version of BlackPerl workshop. We had not many people there but we had a lot of fun, presentations and even a small hackathon.
The view from the building was just awesome:
I wasn't on the first setup day, but the guys were already hacking:
On the first day Yaroslav Korshak (aka yko) explained how to behave, what to say and other stuff that could kick us out from the workshop:
And we had some great presentations:
- Perl 5.14 regexps by Oleg Alistratov
- PSGI/Plack by me (the best one of course)
- Interactive diff in git by Maxim Vuets
- Bulding PSGI-compatible frameworks by Sergey Zasenko
- How Perl helped me during my studies by Maxim Vuets
On the first night we did a little hackathon which created Relaxer!
On the second day we had even more presentations!
- Why you shouldn't mock Mojo by Anton Ukolov
- Accessors: pros and cons by Yaroslav Korshak
- TDD/BDD by me
- Maybe you don't know that... Viktor Turskyi
- Perl in day-to-day life by Oleg Alistratov
- ngx_mod_psgi as an example of PSGI server implementation by Yaroslav Korshak
- Code obfuscation by Denis Shulga
So this is it. For more photos visit https://plus.google.com/112066798668523378730/photos.
It was a great time: nice people, interesting talks and good weather despite of October. Hacking together was a useful experience too.
Thanks everybody involved!
I hope the next year we will have BlackPerl again and this time with more people and more interesting presentations!
