I'll be attending YAPC::NA 2015. I'll be easy to spot, just look for the long haired geek with a glass of Scotch in his hand at lunch. I'll be the one who is NOT wearing a kilt.

For those who are interested, I was at YAPC::NA 2014. (I met several Monks there, but also shared a LOT of Scotch with them so I don't remember exactly what face goes with which Monk.)

I just checked my Nerd Score, my wife wasn't surprised. <img src="" alt="I am nerdier than 98% of all people. Are you a nerd? Click here to take the Nerd Test, get geeky images and jokes, and write on the nerd forum!">

I first came to Perl in the early days, but didn't really start making full use of it until the mid-90s. Since then I have used it to implement a full billing system for an ISP, several membership and affiliate management systems, and a full online banking system.

My current $job is classified as Internal Development, which means I deal mainly with backend systems and internal APIs.
