OSCON: Day One part 4
I had been highly anticipating the next talk, which was a presentation on Jifty by Audrey Tang. I was not disappointed. Audrey is widely credited with re-energizing Perl6 development, and now I see why. She's brilliant and crazy, much like Larry Wall, Perl's creator, but with an degree of technical genius that not even he can match. The talk was quitedense, so I won't post many details. I will say that it was extremely impressive. You could hear members of the audience occasionally gasping and giggling in amazement. It's hard to overstate the excitement generated by this presentation, especially considering that this was all Perl5. Well done Audrey!
