LCA2013 – Wrap-up

February 16, 2013

So I didn’t end up posting that much about LCA…

The main conference was fantastic:

  • Clojure is awesome for concurrency
  • Unix party tricks are extremely fun, and rather scary, and now I just want to disappear off teh interwebz
  • Schwern taught me lots about Git – I now have a Github account and I feel a lot more confident with it!
  • Repent, for the end of the Unix epoch is nigh!
  • Pia Waugh can talk very fast, particularly given some sleep deprivation
  • bunnie’s keynote provided some very interesting insights into the world of consumer manufacturing, particularly pricing
  • TBL can speak even faster than Pia – this was actually problematic…
  • Asheesh Laroia and OpenHatch are pretty awesome
  • Paul Fenwick can talk very, very fast given a 90 second timeslot…

Anyway, it was awesome. I highly recommend it, and I’m already planning to make my way to Perth for 2014.
