David Farrell sillymoose: What's new on CPAN August 2014

A curated look at August's new CPAN uploads

Toby Inkster (tobyink): Planet Moose - August 2014
Welcome to Planet Moose, a brief write up on what's been happening in the world of Moose in the past month, for the benefit of those of you who don't have their eyes permanently glued to the #moose IRC channel,...
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 035 Single-Character Strings
Much like empty strings, the PBP suggests being careful of how you write single character strings. It points out a number of them it considers “ambiguous”, including: For the comma, other punctuation, and whitespace, the PBP suggests usin [...]
Gabor Szabo (szabgab): Perl Maven - August 2014
August stared way too busy updating the Test Automation using Perl slides and then I spent almost 2 weeks traveling. It did not leave much time for the Perl Maven site and for other things.

Marcus Ramberg (marcus): Convos 0.8 - Spit and polish

This fall we released Convos 0.8, with the latest update 0.83 hitting CPAN today. As we're inching closer to 1.0, we've been focusing on polishing the user interface, fixing bugs and other rough patches in the user experience. One of the most [...]

Sinan Unur (Sinan): Context dependence in Turkish

So, I tried to improve upon the Turkish translation of Gabor's Scalar and List context in Perl, the size of an array. Given that my heart is not really in it, I am not going to make a habit of this, but I do hope that the new version is useful.

In thi [...]

Toby Inkster (tobyink): Data::Dumper Debugging
I've never really used the Perl debugger much (maybe I should learn?) and usually resort to lots of use Data::Dumper; print Dumper($somevar); statements to help me understand what's going wrong with a piece of code. However, what I often find...
Toru Yamaguchi: [Perl] YAPC Asia 2014


ブログを書くまでが YAPC だって事なので書いてみます。

  • まずスタッフの皆さんお疲れさまでした。yusukebe が主体になっての初の YAPC だけど何ら違和感なく熱狂のまま無事に終了でほんと感慨深かったです
  • typester さんのキーノート良かったですね。多分一定の哲学みたいのが完成していくんでしょうね。キャリアを考える際に自分自身の哲学って何だっけなど考え直すのも良いのかもしれない

YAPC は個人 [...]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 037 Constants
Mr. Conway’s book suggests that constants are good but “use constant;” is the wrong way to go about them. It suggests the Readonly module. Later commenters have suggested Const::Fast instead. Feh, I say. The arguments made against [...]
Herbert Breunung: 5 part YAPC::EU report in German
unless you already seen my tweets and you understand German - you maybe wanna read this thread in the biggest German Perl forum....
JT Smith: Posted Firebase - Build Realtime Apps to JT Smith
Firebase - Build Realtime Apps: I’ve been using Firebase a lot lately to build real-time web apps both in Perl and in Javascript. I figured it was high-time I give them a shout. If you are looking for an easy...

Between brackets: [question score / answers count]
Build date: 2014-08-30 10:44:49 GMT

  1. Why does Perl create an empty array reference via grep? - [6/1]
  2. The correct way to play with data ref [...]
Gabor Szabo (szabgab): Link to public version control system (GitHub or otherwise)
You might know one of my pet peeves is to get people to link to the public version control system of their CPAN modules. Earlier I created a few reports, and in the last couple of days I have started...
Chris Fields: Whither Bio::FeatureIO?
This is a brief post regarding why I decided to remove Bio::FeatureIO from the main core distribution. The fact that it has taken this long for someone to notice is interesting. tl;dr: In BioPerl, I would be wary of anything using Bio::SeqFeature::An [...]
Thomas Klausner (domm): Things I learned at YAPC::Europe 2014 in Sofia
Wow, I'm already back in Vienna for 4 days, but work, the yearly Vienna.pm Barbecue and family kept me from finishing this blog post. Until now! YAPC::Europe 2014 in Sofia was (again) a wonderful ...
Sinan Unur (Sinan): Replacing hash keys with values does not a translation make


Some time ago, Gabor and I had a disagreement regarding the value of translating programming articles to languages other than English.

In a nutshell, having actually worked as a translator (Danish↔Turkish and English↔Turkish, including a stint t [...]

David Farrell sillymoose: Facing the music with Perl

A few Perl modules make it easy

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 034 Single-Character Strings
The PBP suggests never using “” or ” for empty strings, and using q{} instead. Because clearly that’s so much more readable.The concern here is that ” (two single-quotes) might look like ” (a single double quote) o [...]

While attempting to profile a Catalyst application with Devel::NYTProf, I kept getting errors when processing the nytprof.out file because the file was not closed properly.

The solution from http://fkumro.blogspot.ro/2011/11/using-nytprof-with-catalys [...]
