Chas. Owens: Just add a space
So, the thing to do these days seems to be to comment on the idea of renaming (or not renaming) Perl. My gut instinct is that it will do no good and possibly do harm. If I saw a project I had thought was stagnated rename itself with a lot of fanfare [...]

PerlNinja: Mango, sri's new tasty treat!
For those who may have missed it, sri has gone and done another one of those "let me give you guys something cool to play with" things. Before, there was Mojolicous, which brought us non-blocking goodness for our web applications.

Now, there is Mango [...]
Sebastian Willing: Cronjobs on the Dancer floor

Did you find a typo in the title? No? You’re right. I recently started to love the Perl Dancer Framework – and tried to write my first cronjob for a Dancer based project today. I searched CPAN and Google – and found nothing. After d [...]

John Napiorkowski: Pumpkin Perl, Version 20.
In a previous posting, I ranted on the whole, "What should we call Perl" debate that seems to run as an endless sort of ear-worm around our community. After reading a lot of postings, and speaking with people, I've come to accept that the issue is so [...]
Chris Travers: A look back on something I wrote 9 years ago
I recently came across a comment I wrote in 2004 on Slashdot.  I read it and was surprised actually both where my approach had changed and where it hadn't.  The entire comment is worth posting with a few very minor edits:

First, I think that stored proc [...]
Alexis Sukrieh (sukria): Dancer 1 and Dancer 2, what we’re going to do
Dancers a foot ahead by Jonathan Borofsky Fellow Perl hackers, you who like to “dance“, read the following carefully for I have some interesting news for you. You probably know that we’ve frozen Dancer 1 development some time ago, w [...]
NAP Tech Blog: Finding memory leaks
One of our programs was leaking memory. Not much, but enough that Tech Ops were not going to allow us to put it into production. Fair enough, I wouldn’t allow it either, if I were on-call. So I did the … Continue reading
Booking.com dev blog: Highlander!

There can be only one! Referring to the one process doing a particular job at a time, of course.

When writing cron jobs that perform particular tasks in regular intervals, assumptions like "the run time will always be much shorter than the run interva [...]

kazuhiro osawa: Try::Lite より安全な例外キャッチを簡単に
I wrote too safety exception handling module. https://metacpan.org/release/Try-Lite $@ の処理を安全に取り扱う例外処理モジュールとしては Try::Tiny があまりにも有名ですが、別の実装を作ってみました。 アプリケーションを作る時は、よく例外クラスを作ってから die bless {}, $foo_class; みたいな形のオブジェクトの例外を投げて、上流の方で eval で受け取ってから $@ の isa [...]
Ricardo Signes (rjbs): spending somebody else's money... for Perl!

Over the past few years, the Perl Foundation received a bunch of nice big donations to be used for Perl 5. Some of this money has been used to pay for work by Dave Mitchell and Nicholas Clark to work on difficult problems in the Perl 5 core. This has [...]

David Golden: Crossing the Perl Rubicon
Yes, this is another blog post reacting to Matt S. Trout's Pumpkin Perl idea. (His followups are here and here.) I've considered a long, thoughtful reply about what I see as the problems Perl 5 faces, why various proposals I've heard fall short, and [...]
