Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Test::Kit Plans and YAPC::EU Surprise

[ #37221 ]

I've received some nice feedback about Test::Kit. A number of people at YAPC::EU also told me it sounded interesting, so I made the mistake of promising I'd have an alpha out by conference end. I made that deadline, but now there's a lot of work to do. I have three main things resolve:

  1. Add some missing test features
  2. Clean up internals (don't look. Sausage manufacturing looks wonderful in comparison)
  3. Write a Cookbook

In particular, while it's possible to create something just like Test::Most, it's not particularly easy, so the first thing I need to do is eat my own dog food.

Regarding YAPC::EU, I was astonished when the Lisbon, Portugal delegation opened their talk with my promotional video for a Lisbon YAPC. Sitting in a lecture hall with a few hundred people and watching your video on a large screen can be a wee bit intimidating. Fortunately, it went over well and people laughed in the right places (whew). I'll have to do more. That would be fun. Anybody want a video for a conference? :)

In other news, the Copenhagen conference was fantastic and, once again, I'm terribly impressed with what the organizers put together. They're a tough act to follow.
