While I am not part of any official Perl organization, I have some experience with the Perl community, and with organizing events. So I put together this 'kit'. Some of this might help you. It is mostly about promoting the event, but in the end there [...]
Come participate at MadMongers on Tuesday night. [From my blog.]...
Putting this down here both for the public and for myself as a reminder. I still run ActivePerl v12, both because our production servers are at that version and because i see a lot of windows users at that version...

Just under a year ago we passed 30 million reports. This month we have managed to clock up 40 million reports.

Congratulations to Andreas König for submitting the 40 millionth CPAN Testers Report. The report itself was a PASS for Class-DBI-ClassGenerat [...]

The CPAN Testers Admin site has been expanding its user test base, and had some further feedback. Expect an official launch very soon.

In blog news, Randy J Ray has posted two articles relating to CPAN Testers. In his first, CPAN Testers and RPC-XML [...]

If you’ve seen me giving my “Kingdom of the Blind” lightning talk this year, then you’ll know that I’ve been hanging around places like the LinkedIn Perl groups and StackOverflow trying to help people get the most out of [...]

## Introduction

Mojolicious is truly a modern web framework. It keeps up to date with the HTTP, HTML, WebSockets and JSON specifications so you don’t have to worry about doing that right. It’s a framework where you implement the core business logic, whil [...]

Everybody knows, I hope, that you have to be really careful when dealing with time in programs. This isn't a problem only in Perl. Things are bad all over. If you know what you're doing when you start, you can avoid many, many problems. Unfortunately [...]

We've been doing a lot of work behind the scenes on MetaCPAN lately and we've come to the realization that we needed some private repository hosting. In the past, we've reached out to companies where we had contacts, and they've...
It started out with wanting to take in mass quantities of "ruin my day". I wrote a program that would traverse a directory tree and run Perl::Critic on everything with pl and pm suffixes. This would bring out all the depression in all the code I've w [...]
OK, so that's maybe not 100% accurate, but we are looking for students who want to get paid to work with us. How can you get paid to work on MetaCPAN? There are currently two really great options: the Outreach...

I have a feeling this won't necessarily improve Perl's reputation, but I was inspired by Non-Alphanumeric Ruby for Fun and Not Much Else. For reference, here is the Rosetta Code page for FizzBuzz.

#!/usr/bin/env perl

I was dragging my feet for a long time with this, but since the Modiin HUB has opened its gates I have no more excuses. They were kind enough to host our first meeting, and let me start to organize regular meetings in the Modiin HUB. So I am happy to [...]
As I was doing my daily check of blogs.perl.org, I noticed a recent post by Ovid in which he said ... Of course, we also need the p5-mop, but that hasn't been touched in a while; I hope it's not...
I have had this ready to go for a few days now, but I figured I might as well wait for Mardi Gras; so feel free to celebrate, put on a masque, and enjoy a nice Hurricane Cocktail while you read this. A little over three years ago I got inspired while [...]
Earlier this evening was a presentation at the San Francisco PM group, on “Unicode & Everything”. I wanted to go, but had a conflict so I had to miss it. Character encoding is an area I’m weak in, and one that I need to be bette [...]
I was a Gittip skeptic. Heck, I still am. But I signed up anyway and I'll tell you why. But first, I want to talk about money and altruism. Most people contribute to open source for free. They don't do it for money. They do it for fun or self-satisfa [...]
