in reply to Perl Monks BOF at YAPC::NA?

I intend on going also. I've only been to last year's YAPC, and I had a great time there.

I'd certainly be interested in a BOF -- we did have one last year on Friday, but it wasn't anything formal.. we basically all went out to eat at a neat Vietnamese restaurant.

For those looking to attend this year -- be sure to make your hotel reservations soon. The week after YAPC is the 4rth of July, and hotels are filling up quickly.

I'll be staying in the Holiday Inn, and as of a week ago, they still had room.

Hope to see you there!
-Eric

[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
