Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): What Language Should I Learn? Three Answers
A friend of mine, who works in IT but is not a developer, asked me a question during lunch today.

James Marca (jmarca): Using npm with R is great
A few weeks ago I wrote up how I am using npm, the standard package manager for node.js. When I first started using node.js, and when npm first started cropping up as the best package manager to use, I was … Continue reading
Alberto Simões (ambs): CPAN PRC: July is Data::Dump
For July, the CPAN Pull Request Challenge assigned me Data::Dump. Better than the pull request itself, this assignment was great to know Data::Dump, as I have never see it before. For the PR, I tried to read user complains, and...
fREW Schmidt (fREW): CPAN Patch workflow

I just wanted to write up a quick note on my workflow for CPAN patches, because I’m so pleased with it.

I use three tools:

  1. Git::CPAN::Patch

  2. git-hub

  3. fugitive.vim

When I first see a module that needs some love, like today I saw that Gazelle needed some POD [...]

Chris Weyl (RSRCHBOY): Currying patterns
One of the most dangerous books I’ve ever even partially read is MJD’s Higher Order Perl. In particular, its description of subroutine currying — that is, building more specific functions out of more general purpose ones — is [...]

In the last chapter I spoke about our Extended Family, in this article I want to switch to our internal staff once again. i would like to talk a little about the Interns we have had and the great contribution they have made to the fold.

Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Things I learned for perlbrew: Config
Config.

Mostly, I haven't developed for Perl, I've developed for the perl on this machine. Sometimes, my perl on this machine, with this set of modules.

With perlbrew, you're starting with whatever Perl is available, and sometimes, upgrading the perl y [...]
Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): What I learned from perlbrew
I signed up for Neil Bowers' CPAN Pull Request Challenge, and the first module I got was App::perlbrew. After some looking and guessing, gugod pointed me to one of his problems, and after some time reading and understanding how things work, I got it [...]

Paul Evans (LeoNerd): libtickit terminal size handling

I've recently been working on the Window layer in the C library libtickit (a migration to C from my Tickit perl distribution). It's very-almost ready now - I think we have all the code and tests ported from Perl (with the single exception of the exte [...]

David Golden: Why you shouldn't waste your time on Perl 5.6
This is a sort-of response to mst's On Perl 5.6 post. Mostly, I agree with Matt about not gratuitously breaking 5.6 compatibility (i.e. to "force people to upgrade"). However, in recent years, I've never received a single bug report or patch from a p [...]
