I work for Angelo State University as somewhat of a Windows server administrator. I am the founding member of the San Angelo Perl Mongers. I'm fairly new to the Perl Community at large.
I can be found on irc in #yapc, #news, and #win32. I'm trying to help out with the win32.perl.org project. I've recently acquired a PAUSE ID and might have a module or two on the CPAN (by the time you read this). http://search.cpan.org/~jfluhmann/ [cpan.org]
I am also one of the organizers for YAPC::NA 2007.
As I've started trying to become more involved in the Perl community (starting a local PM group, contributing to win32.perl.org, offering a yapc bid, volunteering), I have been considering putting a module on CPAN. I have some reading up to do in order to prepare a module to be worthy of CPAN, but I'm up for it.
At my previous job, I maintained an IIS server for 400+ web accounts and users. The "old" way of creating new accounts was to manually:
I quickly grew tired of the "old" way, so I automated it. I setup a page that allowed me to type in the desired username and 'Real Name' for the new account, as well as the new account's contact e-mail. The page would then send it off to the server to do everything for me and mail the information to the new account's contact.
I had to do a lot of researching to figure out how to create a 'new website' on IIS in Perl (not just a virtual site). There wasn't much out there (or I wasn't using the right search terms).
I've been in a different job for almost a year now, but out of curiosity, I did a quick search on CPAN for anything relating to IIS and found only ONE IIS admin module. I'll probably do some work this week and see what happens.
If anyone has any advice, comments, or recommendations to offer, please do so. I appreciate any feedback.
