The Shadowcat boys, along with a chef, will be attending YAPC::EU in Vienna by car. Yep we decided that it would be fun to have a road trip across Europe, going almost from edge-to-edge. If there is anyone in, or near, Koblenz (Germany) who would like to meet up for a beer and a rowdy chat on either Sunday 26th August or Friday 31st August then let us know.
