Mocking LWP::UserAgent

Important update: Don’t follow this advice, follow that advice!

chromatic mentioned how to use dependency injection in You’re Already Using Dependency Injection. Although I had read that when he posted it, I hadnt actually ever done it. That is, until today.

Thoughts on future conferences

YAPC::NA 2011 was great (read about it: 1, 2, 3), and I enjoyed almost every minute. I have only a few gripes, collected here in no particular order: You can never have enough power in the conference halls. Never. Yes, a four-day conference would be great. Give it a try! Make the area immediately outside the conference halls a comfortable place to sit and/or mingle. Having an area for hacking at the other end of the building isn’t good enough, it needs to be right there.

YAPC::NA days zero and one

I doubt my recounting will be anywhere near as colourful as Yanick’s, but I think it’s worthwhile to share my experiences at YAPC::NA 2011.
