Lightning talk accepted

YAPC::NA - So next week in Boca I’ll be giving a short talk (20 minutes) based on our Java code generation system (discussed briefly here) and also give a little diatribe (5 minutes) on the benefits of INI files for human-readable configuration. These are known as “lightning talks”, and AFAIK they originated at YAPC 00 (aka YAPC 19100). LOTS of fun, particularly since most people don’t have time to get nervous :-)
