[For unknown reason, the text does not show in the announcement of two days ago]
The sixth Dutch Perl Workshop will take place on Friday March 6 2009 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. Although the main language of the conference will be Dutch, usually quite a large number of presentations will be in English.

The conference will have a single track with 5, 10, 15 and 20 minute presentations only: many condensed stories about modules, projects, ideas, challenges, poetry, hard-core internals, and end-user applications. Contributions welcome!

How much to pay depends on how you are taking part. Business employees are requested to pay 100 euro, private participants 75 euro, and speakers 38 euro. We will make special arrangements with foreign visitors. Free lunch and diner included, and a night for Fluxx or Hacking. Good and cheap hostel.

  XML::Compile now provides an instant SOAP daemon on 2008.04.09 9:43 markov

The nice thing about hackathons is that hacking together stimulates one to complete long postponed modules. In Olso, my SOAP daemon got completed at last. Salve, thanks for organizing this useful and pleasant Perl QA meeting!

The XML::Compile suite implements an alternative for SOAP::Lite. Schema's are used to translate between typeless Perl and strictly typed XML. Currently limited to Schema2001 (with all its nasty features), SOAP1.1 over HTTP1.1, and WSDL1.1. Of course to be extended with SOAP1.2, WSDL2 and various transport protocols in the forseeable future. If you have a WSDL, you only need to provide pure perl callbacks for each procedure to create a fully functional SOAP server. Great for rapid "prototyping". The client side call to a remote procedure also takes just a few lines of code. Contributions in any form are welcome.

  Dutch Perl Workshop, Program Available on 2008.02.15 16:06 markov

In two weeks (Feb 29th), the Dutch Perl Workshop will take place in the StayOkay Youth Hostel in Arnhem, The Netherlands. This meeting is primarily targeted on Perl users in The Netherlands and Belgium.

The program is now available, and by accident about half of the talks are in English. So even if you are not able to speak Dutch, do not think our nightly wiskey BoF and games of Fluxx are a good reason to come, or if you do actually need some sleep at night, you now have a chance to learn more about Perl from renowned speakers.

Please register a.s.a.p, if you want to join, because we have to give numbers for the beds and the included free diner.

  Dutch Perl Workshop 2008[->] on 2007.12.28 5:12 markov

The fifth Perl Workshop in the Netherlands will be held at the spare day of the coming year: Friday February 29th. Your boss probably forgot all about that day, so no reason not to come — besides, maybe, that the main language is Dutch. Only a small number of English talks will be presented. Like most of our previous Workshop editions, the day is held at the cosy StayOkay hostel in Arnhem. It is easy to reach by train and car (free parking) See the DPW website for details.

Speakers may enter for free, where business attendence pay 100 EUR and other people 75 EUR incl VAT. This includes lunch and diner. You may plan one or two nights at the hostel (at 37,50 a night), to extend the discussions, play Fluxx or have some drinks together.

We still have a few openings in the program for presentations in Dutch or Flamish. Especially "new" speakers are invited.

  XML::Compile::SOAP milestone[->] on 2007.11.27 9:38 markov

Submitted by markov on 2007.11.27 9:38
Module News
In the past year, I hdeveloped a new XML module, named XML::Compile. It is a full implementation of XML Schemas. Namespaces, data validation, and formatting needs are hidden at the Perl side, but are strictly applied on the XML.

Now, the next hurdle has been taken: SOAP. Yes, there now is a good SOAP::Lite alternative. XML::Compile::SOAP currenlty supports WSDL1.1 and SOAP1.1 over HTTP, the usual combination. This includes support for header blocks and automatic handling of faults (both client and server side errors). Supported are Document-style, RPC-literal style, and RPC-encoded style SOAP messages.

In the design, no concessions were made to the intension of XML: the output of your program is strictly typed, producing predictable results. At the same time, the included examples will demonstrate that the Perl interface for SOAP is kept extremely simple: a working SOAP client within 5 lines of code.

In the forseeable future, a Net::Server based SOAP daemon will be released (with an WSDL file, you only need to add callbacks). Furthermore, WSDL1.2, SOAP1.2, and older schema version will get attention. For now, I would really like to invite early-adopters to give it a try.
