- don't marry your tools
- don't judge a tool by typing (syntax)
- build UI first, pick method and tools second
- keep things out of controller
- red flag: big bunch of ifs in methods
Next talks were about ZeroMQ, Facebook::Graph and a comparison of 4 web frameworks. Mateu Hunter showcased Web::Simple, Dancer, Mojolicious::Lite and Tatsumaki. Nice: when asked after his favorite, he replied: Catalyst. :)
Matt agreed, that during his "State of the Velociraptor" talk we were allowed to throw octopuses (from WebGUI) at him. Stevan Little and Cory Watson sat in the front row with lots of "ammunition" :)
Finally there was another round of lightning talks, notable were Dave Rolsky's Courriel talk and Piers Cawley's song.
It was a wonderful time in Asheville and I'm currently at Tennessee to hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Thanks to all the organizers!
