I'm just going stream of consciousness from my notes from Frozen Perl this weekend.
So, without further ado my ramblings;
The only thing that matters this year
Getting Perl 6 out.
We've had Perl 6 for years.
Parrot 1.0 - March 17 (St. Patrick's Day)
What will the tool chain look like?
Will we use CPAN?
Will we pull directly from github directly?
Colonize outside of use.perl.org
See Perl 6 discussed everywhere
Say Rakudo, Perl 5
The only other thing this year, Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow
Perl 6 dividends in Perl 5: Moose, Catalyst
One more thing (the third)
Be excellent to each other.
Perl's crowning achievement is CPAN
CPAN is community
Community is people
Perl's crowning achievement is people
The only things that matter
* Rakudo must come out in 2009
* Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow
* Be excellent to each other
Large code bases are screaming for Perl::Critic
Use Moose, Catalyst, etc.
Move to 6 for new stuff
