So, I went to YAPC::NA 2006 Sunday through Wednesday this week. As I get time to transcribe my notes I'll post more details here. There were several interesting talks, but I didn't learn anything groundbreaking. However, the Perl Email Project seems to be getting off the ground again, so I'm happy about that. I also met the author of Rubric, which has inspired me to clean up my pile of Rubric hacks (feed aggregator, IRC integration, etc) for submission to CPAN.
More to come.
