Summary of Day 2

Thursday, December 2nd, 2004 at 09:28pm

With my slides for my talk tomorrow at the Open Source Developers’ Conference complete enough I suppose I could go through a summary of Day 2…

  • Open Source Trends by Nathan Torkington
  • “Scripting Language” My Arse: Using Python for Voice over IP by Anthony Baxter
  • PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling
  • Javascript Game Development by Simon Hildebrandt
    I didn’t realise just some of what is possible to do by using JavaScript to interact with the Document Object Model (DOM).
  • I didn’t know perl could talk to hardware? by Scott Penrose
    This talk has inspired me to revive some of my abandoned projects. In particular getting the 1-wire temperature sensors I have hooked up and wiring up at least one of the LCD displays I have had for at least six years now. And of course I will be interacting with them through perl…
  • How to build a Web Grabber / Screen Scraper by John Kaye
  • Overview of Perl Security Modules by Craig Pearce
  • Lightning talks
    This was probably the most value as there was a lot of interesting topics which were then capped by Damian performing his rendition of “Everything I need to know about the Perl community, I learned in kindergarten”
