Getting the ball started

[ #32276 ]

I've spent the last 10 years lurking about through the Perl community, always attempting to "find the gold" instead of building the picks and axes. Thanks to my boss for that one.

Well, I've settled away from the consulting business and am now leading the development efforts at a small Internet photosharing/social site called As you can see it needs some work.

I'm a big fan of Perl, and in general, leveraging Open Source technologies. I've found it difficult to be as participatory as I wanted because my jobs rarely encouraged it and I had a choice of hacking on what I enjoyed (which is not easily released as FOSS) or spending all of my limited time on working on various software and authoring miscellaneous CPAN modules.

Well, now I have the great opportunity to be participatory in the Perl/OSS community as part of my job.

So, my focus now is to revamp the backend of the site by doing a full Catalyst Port, and contributing to the Perl community along the way.

Things couldn't be better :-)
