04:22 AM Technical Meeting

[ #1345 ]

Another good technical meeting last night. As always there was a good selection of talks.

  • Leo Lapworth talked about a technology called Wackamole which easily transfers processes between a group of servers when one or more of them goes down. He caught our attention by demonstrating the problems in terms of Buffy characters.
  • Leon gave an interesting overview of the various benchmarking and profiling modules on CPAN.
  • I tried to encourage people to get involved in nms.
  • James Duncan introduced us to OpenFrame an open source application framework that they've developed at Fotango.
  • MBM overcame some early technical difficulties to talk about KeyMan - a trust network for software distribution.
  • Finally, Piers blew us all away by showing us the progress he's making in building a Perl refactoring browser.

In amongst all that we had the announcement of the nominations for the leadership election. The final nominees are:

  • Paul Mison
  • Amelia, the beany baby camel

May the best... er... thing... win!
