<IMG SRC="">I have three degrees in "Experimental Psychology", mostly from the University of Toronto. My research focused on biological and emotional reactions to sounds, which appealed to me because I was an audiophile and amateur musician 8-}

But what I spent most of my time on was the challenge of developing custom software to analyse the raw data for interesting patterns, using the best languages of the 70s, which included C and later AWK. After an Asst. Professorship in CS with the Univ. of Utah's CS Dept. (1980-1982), I was hired by AT&T to develop and teach classes on UNIX and C, and found that I liked this occupation best.

I now teach classes on UNIX and Perl topics to the Fortune 500, full-time, through my company Consultix, based in Seattle.

I was honored by the Perl community in July, 2002 by being granted a White Camel Award, in part for my work in establishing (in 1998) and leading the Seattle Perl User's Group. This will go on my trophy shelf next to my Golden Brain Award for Excellence in Physiological Psychology, which is a rat brain in a jar of formaldehyde! 8-}

[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
