Lighning talks are coming up next month, on September 29th. But don't
forget we've got *two* meetings in September. on September 3rd (that's
*next week*) we have Kristina Chodorow of 10gen talking about
non-relational databases (though that's not at the usual Six Apart
Just to get the ball rolling, here's the talks I'm thinkinb about doing:
Someone was asking me to do an introduction to writing CPAN modules,
but I figure that's really two talks:
"Writing CPAN modules is easy!"
"Writing CPAN modules is hard!"
I could also (or alternately) do a talk:
"Quick and (slightly) Dirty Test Code"
(I went in a different direction on testing than Jeffrey Thalhammer.)
Anyway, hit me with your ideas, and I'll get you down on the schedule...
