Hi Mongers,

As some of you know a significant milestone in Perl 6's release history is coming up this Thursday, http://rakudo.org/node/73 and what better way to get through an install than with local PM'ers!

  Journal: Hudson for Everybody Else on 2010.06.10 15:01

Joe McMahon will be talking about Hudson on June 22nd at 7pm, at the office of Mother Jones.

"Continuous integration" sounds like a great idea: you automatically run your build on every checkin, so you know very soon after you've committed if you make a mistake or checked in a bug. However, like any
properly lazy Perl programmer, the last thing you want to do is write more code; you want to take advantage of work that's already done: that's Hudson.

Whoops, looks like I am using constraint_methods. I'll check out the datetime validation stuff also.
I've been able to shoehorn DFV into some very unfriendly legacy codebases, so that will be a big focus.

Huh, I'll need to read up on those new methods. I've been using constraints mostly.

As the first talk in series of talks on form validation, Fred Moyer will present an overview of Data::FormValidator. Real world code examples will be presented, and you'll see how you can use Data::FormValidator to implement form validation for legacy codebases as well as new code. Data::FormValidator is a loosely coupled, highly flexible, and easy to use form validation module written by Mark Stosberg.
