About Me

Jeff Pinyan. 7th of 8 children. Born in Waldwick, NJ. Living in Princeton, NJ with wife Kristin.

Born in November 1981. Started using Perl at age 15 or so. You do the math. A fair number of modules on CPAN.

Places of Interest

Sex, Eger!
reversing regular expressions, for fun and profit (see his web site)
Perl's Regex Engine causes me distress
why Perl's regex engine is as dumb as the character classes you feed it
Tie::AssignWrapper
really overloading the assignment operator, so that you can assign values to an object and let the class take care of the translation from native value to internal representation
Array One-Liners
randomizing (via Fisher-Yates), perfect shuffling, and cutting, each in just one sweet line of code (less than 80 characters)

[Corion]: ambrus: My slides are mostly a list of things I want to talk about. But sometimes I want to point out interesting parts, or build up a larger image from small components. This is where animations/ highlights would come in well
[choroba]: what I like about slides in HTML + CSS is I can use templates to produce them, which means all code in slides is tested, and I can version them in git
[ambrus]: Btw, a request to everyone who organizes international conferences where presenters will show slides.
[ambrus]: In the document where you tell people how long the presentations are supposed to be, please also tell the aspect ratio of your projectors, because that's not obvious in advance.
[Corion]: ambrus: A more important point is that when constructing slides, you should respect a margin around your slide content of maybe 10% where no important information should be ;)
[ambrus]: If you don't do that, some people will be able to use only two thirds of the available screen area, or have to prepare three versions of their slides, each of which is a waste that you could avoid with one simple phrase in the call for papers.
[Corion]: As for somebody hosting national conferences, we don't always know the kind of connectors and aspect ratios available ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: well sure, but that's the similar to any printed document, and the margin is diminishing with today's technology. Video games no longer have to assume that the CRTs won't show the edges of the screen.
[Corion]: If you cram your slides with that much information, they might work in an "offline" situation but not very well for a live presentation IMO
[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
