The conference got 672 attendees and I think this is the record breaking biggest YAPC ever.
There are so many tweets during the conference and the hashtag #yapcasia was Trending on Twitter.
There are now so many blog posts on the conference, getting close to 100.
There was no talk focused on PSGI and Plack this year, because it's got the defacto standard already and no dedicated talks are required. Of course there were lots of mentions to Plack and middleware in the web app development and DevOps talk.
YAPC::Asia and Japanese perl community has so many awesomeness that the rest of the world needs a while to catch up :)
The trend in this year's YAPC::Asia was avoiding NoSQL (There was a nosql speicfic Shibuya.pm meetup last year) and hating ORM, especially the DevOps tracks. YAPC::Asia having lots of DevOps talk makes a lot of sense since many startups and internet giants (Mixi, DeNA, livedoor, Hatena etc.) use Perl as their technology.
I love the Titech campus and espeically the green grass for a picnic.
And of course drinking in public like this is completely legal :)
