Reini Urban (rurban): Memory savings with cperl and AvSTATIC
B::C and cperl has now proper support for copy-on-grow (COG) and copy-on-write (COW) arrays. COG means that the array of SV* pointers is allocated by the compiler statically, not dynamically, and that the cperl runtime creates a new array whenever [...]
David Golden: My Github dashboard of neglect
Bitrot. The curse of being a prolific publisher is a long list of once-cherished, now-neglected modules. Earlier this week, I got a depressing Github notification. The author of a pull request who has politely pestered me for a while to review his PR [...]
David Golden: A parallel MongoDB client with Perl and fork
Concurrency is hard, and that's just as true in Perl as it is in most languages. While Perl has threads, they aren't lightweight, so they aren't an obvious answer to parallel processing the way they are elsewhere. In Perl, doing concurrent work gener [...]

Thomas Klausner (domm): App::TimeTracker::Command::Category
A few days ago I released a new plugin for App::TimeTracker called App::TimeTracker::Command::Category. If you don't know App::TimeTracker (or tracker, as the script is called), take a short look at

mdk (also): Cost of Doing Business Part Deux

I'm going to focus this time on customer service, in fact I am going to focus on great customer service and how that is linked to the notion of caring. Specifically it is about how some people care, and how some people care so much they go th [...]

Chris Travers: On Contributor Codes of Conduct and Social Justice


The PostgreSQL, Ruby, and PHP communities have all been considering codes of conduct for contributors. The LedgerSMB community already uses the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.  Because this addresses many projects, I am syndicating this further than whe [...]

Dave Cross (perlhacks): Why Learn Perl?

A couple of months ago I mentioned some public training courses that I’ll running in London next month. The courses are being organised by FlossUK and since the courses have been announced the FlossUK crew have been running a marketing campaign to en [...]

Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on Pure-Perl XML in polettix

@Joel: I agree too, Mojolicious is not the kind of "installing half of CPAN" thing that sometimes makes me look for alternatives.

WRT my community experience, there are always two ends in a communication and they can be both wrong, mine included (as i [...]

Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on Pure-Perl XML in polettix

@Joel not sure what you mean with your comment. My goal is the equivalent operation of a fat-packing; in such cases, having a module that has less dependencies (especially when they are guaranteed) is easier to include than one with more (especially [...]

Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on Pure-Perl XML in polettix

@Joel thanks for the hint. Mojo::Dom seems fine for projects where I use Mojolicious, but for standalone-ness I'd probably look into DOM::Tiny which is derived from it.
