Melbourne.pm last night

[ #32689 ]
To Melbourne.pm last night, along with Josh H from work (ex Pdx.pm). Gave a talk on test modules -- basically just a quick overview of some of what's out there on CPAN -- which I think went pretty well. It got that eyes-lighting-up response from a few people anyway, and someone at the pub namechecked Lessig wrt my presentation style, so excuse me while I preen briefly (though I thought I was doing the Takahashi method (http://presentationzen.blogs.com/presentationzen/2005/09/living_large_ta.html), sorta, only with code blocks). Must clean up my CPAN modules. It's a mess.

    • Yeah, in my case I found myself trying to write Test::MockObject::Extends (in one pathological case) and it was a bit lame. Worked better for words like "SKIP" that have something closer to the same aspect ratio.
