  • Posted AmsterdamX.pm hosting a Perl hackathon! to Sawyer X

    At AmsterdamX.pm we decided to cook up a special surprise this cold February: we're hosting our first hackathon!

    But since we like surprises, there is one more surprise. We will have a special guest: Stevan Little. Yes, that Stevan Little.

  • Posted New Dancer 2 release: 0.11 to Sawyer X

    Hi everyone!

    A new version of Dancer 2 has just been uploaded to CPAN: 0.11.

    Before we go over the changes we've had, I'd like to take a moment to welcome Russell Jenkins (veryrusty) as a member of the Dancer core dev team. Russell has done tremendous work on Dancer and provided pa…

  • Commented on What if Perl OO was a Core Feature?
    Toby Inkster gave an excellent answer. This "if OO will be easy and integral, people will force it upon me everywhere, all the time" claim is not just silly, but it's absurd and unfounded. It's actually just FUD. Toby pointed...
  • Posted New Dancer 2 release: 0.08 to Sawyer X

    (this is the email sent to the Dancer users mailing list, updating on recent releases)

    Hey,

    we have just released a new version of Dancer 2: 0.08. While it didn't carry everything we had wanted (one specific change was left for 0.09), we decided it is more important not to delay fe…

  • Posted New Dancer 2 release: 0.07 to Sawyer X

    (this is the email sent to the Dancer users mailing list, updating on recent releases)

    Hey everyone,

    I would like to get back into the habit of letting everyone know what's going on with Dancer. This means keeping you up to date on releases and our plans for the future.

  • Commented on Modules ported to p5-mop
    I wanted to start converting my modules too but got a few issues (including a segfault) in the process of running perl 5.16 using Perlbew. :(...
  • Commented on TPF Grant Progress Report: July 2013
    I love reading grant progress reports. It gives a sense of being there with you, and being included in the thoughts and ideas, and the effort into putting those into action. Thank you for writing them even though it's not...

  • Commented on Kegler spam
    In most programs it's the keyboard button "J", or just click "Next"....
  • Commented on Crowdsourcing self-confidence
    This is gonna take a bit, and I apologize for that, but there's a lot to say. First of all, you're quite technically gifted. Beyond the ability to bring ideas into term, you also have a plan of where to...
  • Commented on p5-MOP syntax improvements
    Thank you for continuously updating about this. :)...
  • Commented on Kegler spam
    I'm disturbed by people disturbed by long posts they can just skip with a single button. How can I flag this post as "abuse [of my time]"?...
  • Commented on Recruiters suck, and why I became one.
    As I've said in person, I'm sure Leïla and you will do a wonderful job. You have the knowledge (social, administrative, technical), experience and passion for it....
  • Commented on Once More Unto The Breach
    I think in retrospect this will turn out to be one of the more important steps done for Perl. Unsurprisingly, it will probably be up there along with Moose - both done by the same imaginative person. Thanks for that....
  • Commented on Pre-Modern Perl VS Post-Modern Perl: FIGHT!
    Excellent post, Buddy! I just want to note that evolution is basically adaptation for survival's sake. If we're talking about surviving the future, Perl (as with any animal) must adapt (or "evolve") to fit the environment. To write *new* things...
  • Commented on Post Every Day
    I think the post-a-day approach was a major part of why YAPC::NA last year was sold out so soon and got people so excited about it even before it started....
  • Commented on Using Stratopan To Build ... Stratopan
    Aaand... you ruined it, Getty. :)...
  • Commented on Using Stratopan To Build ... Stratopan
    Take a look at Getty's reply, please. You'll notice that although he is well known for being... let's say "abrasive", he still nailed it. He basically said "you could have phrased it differently" and added "and I hope that eventually...
  • Commented on Using Stratopan To Build ... Stratopan
    Peter, you seem to be overreacting. He noted that in this specific incident he did not want to start debugging the situation. That's fair. He doesn't owe the community to sit and sift through an unknown number of modules to...

  • Posted Interview with Pragmatic Perl in English to Sawyer X

  • Posted Why You Should Help Crowd-fund Pinto to Sawyer X

    There are only a few more days left to chip in to sponsoring work on Pinto. If you're still unconvinced or haven't thought about it yet, let me give my point of view on why you should spare a few minutes and a…

  • Posted My Perl Pitch to Students to Sawyer X

    I blogged about visiting Evozon and giving a Perl pitch talk to students, trying to get them interested in Perl. I've decided to share the draft I wrote a day earlier with the ideas I wanted to express. So, here it is:

  • Commented on ::NonOO suffix for non-OO version of a module
    I like the "I wrote and uploaded this thing to CPAN, now I'm looking for a good name for it." - why not blog *before* that? Did you email the module-authors list as well? Have you consulted people on IRC?...
