  • Posted A FIXIT-dive into an old CPAN module to Salve J. Nilsen

    Let’s have a thought experiment. Assume there is an Open Source-licensed Perl module published on CPAN that you care about, and that hasn’t had any updates in a very long time - what are your options?

    In this blog post, I’ll take a dive into this problem, and use the Geo:…

  • Posted A Perl Toolchain Summit 2018 organiser's report to Salve J. Nilsen

    The 2018 edition of the Perl Toolchain Summit is over! I’ve posted my report from it on my own blog.

  • Posted Perl Toolchain Summit 2018: Oslo, Norway to Salve J. Nilsen

    Every year we bring together the lead developers of the Perl and CPAN toolchain! This event was previously known as the QA Hackathon, but in 2016 it became the Perl Toolchain Summit (PTS) to more accurately reflect the scope and purpose.

    This is an event where pressing issues around Perl&#…

  • Commented on Python is The New "Write-Only, Linenoise" Language
    Now, now, let's not go about bashing the pythonistas! They have still a gem of a language, perfectly cromulent for many things and with a long future in front of them! ;)...

  • Commented on We are all Perl's ambassadors...

  • Commented on Unicode is 20++ years old and still a problem
    Maybe the guy who wrote the software hasn't bumped into your usage pattern? If you want to make him/her aware of what you found, try filing a bug report (with a failing test, if possible :). Also, it might be...
  • Commented on When to create a branch in Git?
    Also, "git rebase -i " ftw. :) It's *very* nice to be able to reorganize and squash several related commits to one. Makes the commit history so much easier to manage....
