OSCON: Day One wrap-up

After the Perl lightning talks we went back to the exhibit hall reception for some free beer. It was during this time that I was able to talk to a couple of prospective developers at the exhibit without feeling useless. Maybe it was the beer.

Besides the free beer, there wasn't too much interesting stuff going on in the exhibit hall. I got a tee-shirt and a few stickers. After the reception Thai and I walked back to my hotel. We've dropped off our stuff and now we're waiting for Adam to come back from dinner with David and his family. I heard from Nick that there's a Perl party of some sort, which is what I'm most interested in, but there will be lots to do tonight regardless I'm sure.

So far I've been pleasantly surprised at how much fun I've been having at this event. The talks have been fantastic, the people are friendly and knowledgeable, and there's usually free food. I'm looking forward to the next two days that much more.
