Below is a post to the CPAN Testers mailing list by Mark Overmeer. Mark asked me earlier in the week about promoting under-tested OSes, which has been something I've been meaning to do for awhile. Alhough, I planned to write a blog post, however as M [...]

Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Thinking through Git in my work
This is mostly me thinking through some issues.

I use git and GitHub a fair amount. Not enough, not deeply enough, but a fair amount.

  • code in ~/dev/Project
  • subdirs (test/, lib/, examples/, docs/, e [...]
David Golden: How to add 'provides' metadata via Makefile.PL
My last post about PAUSE permission problems suggested to manually add a 'provides' field to your metadata files if PAUSE can't determine what packages are in your distribution. I realized that people might not know how to do that, so this is a quick [...]
Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Testing my API changes with Perl
I have an API. I like some things about it, but it was kinda clunky in many ways.

I rewrote it. I thought I had everything together, used the same SQL queries, but I wanted to be sure it kicked out the same output.

Dave Cross (perlhacks): Modern Perl Articles

Back in 2011 I wrote a series of three articles about “Modern Perl” for Linux Format. Although I mentioned all three articles here as they were published, I didn’t post the actual contents of the articles as I wasn’t sure abou [...]

In the talk somehow near th [...]

Apologies for the disruption.  We'll update this post as more information becomes available.

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 093 Algorithmic Documentation
The Best Practices suggest using a full-line comment before a paragraph of code to explain the algorithm. This is, in my experience, good advice, and what comments should be used for. Comments need to describe why you’re doing something, not th [...]

Unlike a workshop session where there is a little time to stretch while teaching a presentation has to do a little more, and in a different way. In a presentation we have to sow the seeds of our passion, show a little of something new to the audience [...]

perlancar: Interacting with PAUSE using CLI
Any CPAN author has to interact with PAUSE, the website you go to upload files if you want to publish your work on CPAN. There is no API provided, so you have to use a browser to upload files manually. Well, not really. There are some modules you can [...]
