Thanks for the good words! Was really great to have all the Perl-ers there.
Now if we could just get more Java folks presenting, and a few Python guys
as well, then I think we'd be covering all the major languages. My goal is
to have the most equal and broad coverage possible of current technology. A
big thanks to you folks for helping to make that happen.
For those curious, we had an estimated 325 people attend camp on Saturday.
Kinda funny that both the PLUG guys and us expected that with Code Camp
happening concurrently, they would have more people getting installed.
Heck, we had even put it on our agenda for people to sign up and everything
to try to get them more sign-ups. Strangely there was less attendance than
normal for them, so apparently the other sessions were more compelling than
the Ubuntu progress bar.
BTW, do you guys know about barCamp coming up in early December? Josh
Knowles, James Britt, and some other Ruby-centric guys are spearheading it,
and just like with Code Camp any language goes. The interesting catch? Ya
gotta present something if you're going. (Doesn't have to be big, just
Looks like it will be fun.
