  • Commented on We are all Perl's ambassadors...
    Ooh, correction to myself; CPANRatings is on github! https://github.com/perlorg/perlweb/tree/master/lib/CPANRatings :D...
  • Commented on We are all Perl's ambassadors...
    One obvious way to improve the situation is by letting CPANratings "time out", so old (and presumably fixed) comments get a reduced visibility. I think cpanratings.perl.org can be made into a much better resource than it is today, but this...
  • Posted CPAN Day 2014 in Oslo to Salve J. Nilsen

    Oslo Perl Mongers are organizing a CPAN Day event! \o/

    Tomorrow (Saturday August 16th 2014), we’ll be hanging out at the Hackeriet (Norwegian for “The Hackery”) hackerspace, helping anyone dropping by with CPAN and Perl issues they may h…

  • 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....

    As someone new to going to YAPC's, I want to also say a big congrats to Wendy, Liz, and the Brasilian Perl community. You deserve the recognition, and I hope you see you this summer!

    I completely missed the call for nominations via MobRater, but the award winners are certainly well-qualified. Welcome to the club, Thiago, Wendy, Liz and Fred!

    Congratulations to the winners. I'm sure they are well-deserved awards.

    Unfortunately I think this may simply be a very small example of how the Perl community is generally sometimes unfriendly to new developers. Before I get pounced on I'll give a shout out to all of of the great work done by people who are trying to change that (Gabor Szabo for one). It was also nice to see the Zero to Perl workshop last weekend at the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop (Dan Wright)!

    The snobbish attitude though is not reserved just for new developers. I'm not defending poorly written and possibly ill conceived modules that folks might naively upload to CPAN. I believe there …

    Maybe create some phase gates for new contributors? or create some kind of bar to get over before you can upload and even get rated in the first place?

    prepan.org exists as a place where authors can upload code for critique, but it doesn't get used often enough. I wouldn't mind the requirement for a new author to make at least one submission to prepan.org first (and get some positive feedback) before their first PAUSE upload, but this is difficult to enforce without a lot of code that no one would want to write.
