Mark Fowler (Trelane): Critical Hit
Last night I braved Winter Storm Juno to venture out to Albany Perl Mongers’ technical meeting in East Greenbush. Our special guest star Jeff Thalhammer had agreed to teleconference in from San Francisco to talk us through Perl::Critic. This ar [...]
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 078 Value Switches
The idea behind this Best Practice is to explain how a table lookup can be used instead of an if/elsif/elsif/elsif/elsif/else block to make selections from a set of constants. This is almost always a good choice! Mr. Conway’s examples are clear [...]
Andreea Pirvulescu (andreeap): A new week and profiling
It is common knowledge at this point that performance is a critical aspect of building a web application. Time is of essence for many of us, therefore in some cases even if an application has better functionality, but it is…

Renee Baecker: Yak-Shaving January 2015 ;-)
You might know the problem: you work on anything (let's call it "A") and then you realise that you have to work on anything else ("B") before you can finish "A". And then you realize that you have to work on yet another thing ("C") to finish "B".

I wa [...]
David Farrell sillymoose: Introducing 3 new Perl Glyphs

What will you use them for?

fREW Schmidt (fREW): Asynchronous Musings

Recently at work I’ve been working on our first section of code that is purely asynchronous. It’s pretty exciting! As I’ve discussed before, we’re using IO::Async, which has first class support for Futures. Futures are sorta kinda a way to expr [...]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 077 Multipart Selections
The PBP say “Avoid cascading an if.” At first glance, this sounds like a pretty harsh suggestion. As it turns out, I rarely ever have any issue following this suggestion. Well organized code seems not to need long if/elsif/elsif/elsif/els [...]
Doug Bell (preaction): Managing SQL Data with Yertl
Every week, I work with about a dozen SQL databases. Some are Sybase, some MySQL, some SQLite. Some have different versions in dev, staging, and production. All of them need data extracted, transformed, and loaded. DBI is the clear choice...
mdk (also): The Testers Need a Badge

Let's face it CPAN Testers is an absolutely ace service. We have to agree to that right, and I know you will all [instantly feel like following this link and making a donation][donate] to keep this service alive and well. I have said on a num [...]

Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Perl Implementations of anyPass() and allPass()
allPass() takes an array of code refs containing tests, and returns a function which takes a value, runs the tests on that value, returns false if any test fails, and returns true after all the tests.

anyPass() takes an array of code refs containing [...]
Tatsuhiko Miyagawa: FOSDEM 2015 - Home
FOSDEM 2015 - Home:

FOSDEM 2015 will take place at ULB Campus Solbosch on Saturday 31 January and Sunday 1 February 2015.

I’ll be traveling to Europe next week to attend FOSDEM for the first time, in Brussels. I’m not sure but looking at the social str [...]

Andreea Pirvulescu (andreeap): A new week and Moose
I never quite enjoyed OOP programming, so when I heard about Moose I was really skeptical that it will be any different even if everyone says it is such a cool thing to use. Moose is an object system for Perl 5 that really gives you powers, because i [...]
Shadowcat Systems: Shadowcat Team go to [FOSDEM][fos]

[FOSDEM][fos] is only a couple of weeks away,[1] and for the first time in their history the Shadowcat team will be making an appearance.[2]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 076 List Processing Side Effects
Mr. Conway suggests the very firm, “Never modify $_ in a list function.” I’m torn on this. I’m torn because this seems to discard a useful part of Perl; the list functions for, map, grep, and first all set $_ to an alias of th [...]
David Golden: Setting up a Perl Development Environment with plenv
This is a slightly modified copy of something I posted internally at work about setting up a development environment using plenv, which keeps your working Perl isolated from your system Perl. Many expert Perl developers already have some variation of [...]
David Golden: Flaming people versus flaming code
I think the Perl community in general (perhaps like many open source communities) suffers from two interrelated flaws: (1) We think flaming someone's code is an acceptable or useful form of technical critique (2) We react to flames against our code a [...]
David Golden: Back on the iron blogging horse
When the Perl Iron Man challenge was going, I blogged regularly. At a certain point, I stepped it down, and then, since last May, stopped. It's time to get back on that horse. I'm going to be aiming to meet the original Iron Man goals: 4 posts every [...]
