Im­agine a big chocolate cake full of yummy in­gredients and you have "ma kom­munitae" A per­son­al look at some of the peo­ple in the Perl com­mun­ity who both im­press and in­spire me.
The talk also examines some of the roles we take in our community using the sociological model of a family
So this is a slice of that cake, a family cake, though not lit­eral­ly. It is a metap­hor­ical cake. It also con­tains an­ec­dotes from the back end of a con­fer­ence Cthulu at­tempted to de­stroy (next year we sac­rifice 2 vir­gins to him). This is a per­son­al tri­bute and tale of an or­ganis­er in the wild, it may be use­ful, it will at least have slides.
