Interview with Tim Bunce on DBI

Welcome back to Perlcast! We have a great round of shows lined up for the new year starting with none other than Tim Bunce talking about the future of the Perl DBI. Based on the interview, it looks like we'll need to take the word 'Perl' out from in front of DBI because it looks like Tim has big plans for the future of the distribution.

Interview with Chip Salzenberg, the Parrot Pump King

Just off the heels of the Chicago Perl Hack-A-Thon, which focused very much on Parrot, I have a great interview with Chip Salzenberg. Chip is a past Perl 5 Pump King and is the current Parrot Pump King.

Parrot, as many of you know, is a virtual machine that is intended be a platform for running Perl 6. Actually, the Parrot virtual machine hopes to run many languages other than Perl 6. There is currently beginning implementations of many languages on Parrot including Ruby and TCL. Parrot is different than many other virtual machines that we know of. It is register-based, as opposed to the common stack-based architectures, and it is designed to run dynamic languages.

Listen to hear what Chip has to say about the state of Parrot and what you can do to help out.

August Already?

So tonight I was sifting back through old emails trying to respond to people who I honestly just didn't have a chance to respond to in the last month. It's very odd responding to an email that is over a month old, but most likely if you emailed me recently then you got a response tonight. I'm publicly apologizing for my lack of attentiveness, but I have a good excuse :) You see, I was doing this YAPC thing up until the end of June and then minutes after I dropped of of YAPC attendees at the airport I picked up my mother-in-law so that she could stay for a week (ask cog, he was there). Then, on the day she left I officially closed on my new loft, which kept me more than busy (fixer-upper) until I left for OSCON. Now I'm back and am hacking on my loft, my job, YAPC follow-ups, and a backlog of other things that I have rudely abused recently.

So, this post is not necessarily an excuse for me ignoring any of you for the past month+, but more of a request for you to please ping me again if I haven't responded and/or fulfilled/rejected your request.
