Is it me or is the Planet Perl feed or Sebastien Riedel's Mojolicious::Lite post on like permanent update?
It's like every other day it shows up in the feed.
I suppose if I really cared I would email the NOC or Sebastien...but I'm trying to work on my passive-aggressive skills for use later in life.
Building a Custom Local CPAN
brian d foy
making custom cpan's for people
indexes it like cpan
* once you make your own index you can make your own cpan
* get the data files and you are golden
* john rockway sqlite-ified it
take any file installed anywhere, what perl distribution, where and such
* build me the cpan that existed when this was current
* work backwards
can now make a cpan for all your internal stuff that doesn't exist on cpan
* just a dir of tar balls
* now put in cpan structure
cpan.pm : connect to internet ok? config to 0
* turn off and go to internal stuff only
stonehenge might offer this as a service or something
movies on vimeo about this
look on use.perl as well
Have a way for your users to use your product
Provide software but don't provide the pieces to run it
plainblack.com - webgui.org
Make it easy to use it
webgui runtime environment
solve the problems, users don't care how
prereqs are plentiful and lots of versions
first impressions matter. you only get one chance
* easy demo/install
more potential users than existing users
the power of "it just works"
irc comment: acme::intraweb
Excellent visual presentation. Very well done.
Memory management with Perl
Your friendly introduction to a wastrel
Read the guts documents
Perl only grows, it doesn't free memory until it ends
can easily fragment the heap
NUL vs NULL very different
prune vars before assigning them
arrays suck a lot
hashed suck more
So there is lots of infrastructure for arrays and hashes
hashes grow in 2D over time
sort of wandering into Debunking Perl Myths (same speaker) but we mostly talked about memory management but that was ok. We had a good discussion.
Intro to Moose
shawn moore (sartak)
started early, that's ok
I need to start using moose. I've been to a couple too many intro to moose talks.
Less code is less bugs (from traditional perl 5 oo)
still need code reviews and good testing to catch typos
Where to get info.
The art of metaboject protocol
moose on irc.perl.org
Beyond the Tutorial: Lessons Learned in Using Catalyst on a Real Application
using catalyst and some tips.
Some notebook/projector/external display problems slowed things down.
I spent too much time on irc.
my fault as a bad audience member.
He showed real life code that he uses in his work.
Creation of a Simple Web App using CGI::Application, Template Toolkit and DBIx::Class
Aimed at folks not in control of their apache install and such
A lite mvc framework
You still need to do some work.
I'm just going stream of consciousness from my notes from Frozen Perl this weekend.
So, without further ado my ramblings;
The only thing that matters this year
Getting Perl 6 out.
We've had Perl 6 for years.
Parrot 1.0 - March 17 (St. Patrick's Day)
What will the tool chain look like?
Will we use CPAN?
Will we pull directly from github directly?
Colonize outside of use.perl.org
See Perl 6 discussed everywhere
Say Rakudo, Perl 5
The only other thing this year, Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow
Perl 6 dividends in Perl 5: Moose, Catalyst
One more thing (the third)
Be excellent to each other.
Perl's crowning achievement is CPAN
CPAN is community
Community is people
Perl's crowning achievement is people
The only things that matter
* Rakudo must come out in 2009
* Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow
* Be excellent to each other
Large code bases are screaming for Perl::Critic
Use Moose, Catalyst, etc.
Move to 6 for new stuff
Just sitting around waiting for the keynote to start.
Mostly just catching up on email, comics and such.
Along the lines of rootprompt.org going stale, linux.com seems to be going brain dead.
They announced a change coming.
The only change I see is suck. The main page is a forums page.
While linux.com wasn't the best geek news site it was worth a look.
I'm hoping it doesn't suck but when even roblimo gets laid off maybe tech news is not going so well.
Anyone know of a decent tech news site? I read
Hmmm, do I start reading kuro5hin again? *shudder*
