I’ve arrived in Salt Lake City a couple of days before YAPC::NA in the hope that I can adjust time zones before the conference. This doesn’t feel like it is working well, but I did manage to stay awake until after 10pm last night even if I started waking at 4:30am this morning. This would not be so bad if my head didn’t hurt and I was able to concentrate. I appear to have my body here, but my brain is somewhere over the Pacific.
We held the last weekly YAPC::NA planning meeting last night. There are some last minute things that need to be sorted out but things do seem to be on schedule. I’m both apprehensive and excited about the conference. This was the first time I was involved in the planning of training courses around the conference and I’m pleased to see that the Introduction to Moose course has sold out.
I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and there are a few people, who I have dealt with in email, that I’m looking forward to meeting in person.
