Monthly Melbourne PM meeting

[ #38300 ]

Good and bad news for this month's Melbourne PM meeting.

Good news, a record (for the new venue) number of mongers (25.5, including what seemed to be a 3 year old perl hacker :)) turned out to hear Paul talk about App::Sweeperbot (funny, but uses the extremely useful Win32::GuiTest), Devel::NYTProf (awesome), PAR (remote repositories look very useful), moose and perl 5.10 regexps.

Bad news, i stuffed the airconditioning arrangements, so the meeting room got kinda warm. Hoping not to repeat that fiasco. Also, the quest to find a broadly acceptable place to eat/drink afterwards continues. Apparently the idea of booking a place to sit down and have a range of food and drink presented is harder than it should be. Targeting Young & Jacksons as a test for next meeting.

Need to find time to check out the remote_repository stuff for PAR too. At the moment it's looking like it has the potential to fix the "how to i distribute updatable code to non-root users" problem.

  • Hi,

    when or if you start playing with the PAR remote repositories, feel free to keep the PAR mailing list in the loop. There's likely still issues to be ironed out and sometimes the authors of a piece of software aren't sensitive to their own hiccups.


    P.S.: This all being said, my internet access will be spotty in the upcoming weeks.
