Geoffrey Young’s mod_perl session was good. For the first half-hour or so, I was worried that perhaps the session was a mistake, since I wasn’t learning a whole lot new. Not too much after that (9:41, actually) I realized that he was spinning into some new and interesting territory. The remainder of the session was a dizzying tour. Wow. He just blew through stuff, holding true to Mark-Jason Dominus’s Conference Presentation Judo recommendation to just speed right along at a clip faster than 75-80% of your audience would prefer. This makes it hard to take notes but that’s okay. What I had hoped to get out of this thing was a more general grounding in mod_perl, and to carry away a few techniques and concepts, cool ideas I can look into using right away and that will help guide future study and development. Bingo, that’s what happened.
