We are making our final preparations for the Plat_Forms contest. Our power cord adapters are in hand and our hotel rooms are booked.
Gantry is sporting a bit of clean up and a new SOAP capability (responses are prepared with SOAP::Lite, requests are integrated into Gantry). Bigtop generates all the code except the part that does the real work. For now, it only works for mod_perl 2.0. Time permitting we will make it work for mod_perl 1.0 and CGI after the contest.
We could use your help
The contest organizers are going to set up a blog server where contestants can get feedback from the public during the contest time. You can help us by visiting the blog during that time and providing feedback. The contest is from Thursday 8:00 UTC until Friday 15:00 UTC. Helpful comments will be greatly appreciated.
There will be two other perl teams. Please give them comments too. Help all of us make Perl look good.
