Well, I have 2 talks, one that I've written and presented last week at the Hive London Meetup, but is not Perl related at all:


and another one I've been mulling and considering writing to submit to LPW, but I'm afraid it wouldn't warrant me many friends in the L.pm community, it's titled "The problem with Perl" and is basically me ranting about the nice things in Java and Python that we (as in, myself until I started doing serious Java and Python, and some other L.pm'ers I've talked with) just tend to shrug off or don't even think about, or think they're bad but they're actually not bad at all.

The problem with the first talk is that it's target audience are people who already know Hive, and with the second the fact that I value my physical integrity :)
