It is confirmed that YAPC::Asia will be on Sep 10-11, 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. (http://conferences.yapcasia.org/ya2009/)

We(PerlChina) are considering to host the beijing Perl Workshop on Sep 19 or 20(Sat or Sun) If there are enough interests from Y::A attendees.

Think about the Great Wall, Fobidden city and awesome Authentic Chinese food, If not Perl. :)

how about setting pace little loose? I thought one has the freedom when not working in a regular job and can call your own shot.

oddmuse is based on usemod. http://www.oddmuse.org/cgi-bin/oddmuse/What_Is_Oddmuse

regardless of one big perl file, it meets my requirements. a real world example of oddmuse is emacswiki and it seems to be running fine. http://www.emacswiki.org/

I am aware of MojoMojo. But it certainly doesn't meet my requirements - good feature set but installation is no comparison to any of the wikis I mentioned.

I have been having this urge of using a wiki written in Perl for PerlChina. We used instiki(in ruby) before moving to mediawiki(in PHP). Reason why we use mediawiki is because Instiki was not stable at the time, Yahoo China happens to run few mediawiki for other OSS sites so it is easy for them to adopt us.

September is good timing. We (PerlChina) are planning to host another Perl Workshop this year again in Beijing. Maybe We can have it after Y::A and subsequently get more attendees/speakers.

BTW, here is the world wide perl events and looks like September or October is mostly event free so far.

Attached to: Perl PR: There’s more than one way to do it

I did feel uncertain about the effect of putting a PR release on PRWeb When I read the blog entry. and I think doing cool thing in Perl and blog about it would do more good.

The problem is that I rarely hear much cool things done in Perl(say mod_wsgi support for Perl) or read about it.

Probably most of the cool things are already done in Perl and People are getting most of the fun doing it in other Newer languages now.

does the "management" know that the metric is meaningless in every way? I hope that's not a real motivation for developers in your team.

It is actually quite easy to separate the build system from krang. I did that and use it in my projects. I have put it on google http://code.google.com/p/btfm/
