I’m finally on my way to YAPC::EU. I’ve been travelling since Sunday and I’m really tired. Part of me thinks that I’m crazy to try to make this conference but I’ve been at all of them since 2001 and now that I live in Asia I miss the European Perl Mongers. The conference started this morning, so I’m missing the first day. I’m also going to miss the conference dinner but I’ll still have two days of talks to attend and hopefully enough time to catch up with people.
As I wasn’t sure that I would make the conference I only submitted a five minute lightning talk called 10 Things To Do With A Conference T-Shirt. This has been scheduled for tomorrow afternoon and is completely prepared as I gave it at YAPC::NA earlier in the summer. I have been considering translating this into Japanese for YAPC::Asia but I don’t know if I’m brave enough to get up and talk in Japanese.
I’ve another couple of hours before my first flight so I’m going to try to catch up on some of the backlog of email that I have. It’s going to be a busy week!
