  • Posted Monthly Report - October to Mohammad S Anwar

    October belongs to Hacktoberfest technically. Most of my spare times dedicated to just one thing i.e. Hacktoberfest Challenge. However I still managed to continue daily upload to CPAN. Today is the 439th day of d…

    It is people like you that keeps me motivated all the time. Every now and then when I feel low, I get positive and encouraging response to my PR. Suddenly I am back in action like a little kid. So...
  • Posted Hacktoberfest: Thank You to Mohammad S Anwar

  • Posted Hacktoberfest 2018 - Memorable Moments to Mohammad S Anwar

    I remember the first time when I participated the Hacktoberfest challenge in the year 2015, I was so excited competing with other hackers. Although I only had to submit 4 Pull Request to get specially designed free T-shirt but I went ahead and submitted 45 Pull Request in that month. I was very…

  • Posted 1000+ Pull Requests: What kept me going? to Mohammad S Anwar

    I have been asked this question many times since I submitted over 1000 PR. Before I answer this question, I would like to share a secret with you all.

    It all started in the month of Jan 2015 with Pull Request Challenge (PRC) pioneered by Neil Bowers. Although I was already submitting PR b…

  • Posted Daily CPAN uploads: Mission continued... to Mohammad S Anwar

    I still remember the blog A year of CPAN uploads by Barbie published on 22nd March 2015. In his blog, he mentioned my name and my intention to break his record. At that point in time, I was at 150 odd days old. I…

  • Posted The Perl Conference in Glasgow - Report to Mohammad S Anwar

    To begin with "The Perl Conference in Glasgow" was my first ever YAPC. Prior to this, I was only regular to London Perl Workshop. It was the gang at German Perl Workshop that I attended earlier encouraged me to come to …

  • Commented on The Perl Conference - what is new?
    That must have given first timers great opportunity to open up with the old timers and build the connection. I think it was great initiative. I just hope every event organizer takes it forward....
  • Posted The Perl Conference - what is new? to Mohammad S Anwar

    Before I say anything, I must say, I am who I am today because of the wonderful Perl Community. I have been attending London Perl Workshop since 2012. Ever since I have seen plenty of improvements as far as the quality of talks, venue management and other activities.

    However there is one t…

  • Posted Comparative Analysis - Report (July 2018) to Mohammad S Anwar

    July has been little stressful for me. Why? For the first time ever, I struggled to find issues to help with PR. Partly because the "Kwalitee" link was broken for first 2 weeks. Even when it became active, there was hardly anything for me to work on. Is it because CPAN authors are becoming…

    I remember the first distribution Plack::Middleware::Session, I received after joining the "Pull Request Challenge" by Neil Bowers in the January 2015. I was so nervous thinking about what to do with the distribution that I have never used before. I didn't want to embarrass myself in the very…

    Oh I know that Wendy, but you were extremely kind and ludicrously generous and you need thanking. So... THANKS!

  • Jason A. Crome commented on 2018 Dancer Advent Calendar

    Thank you! Please ping me on IRC (cromedome). I am putting together an email list for those working on the articles.

    Essentially, write an article, send it to us, we will add it to the advent calendar github repo, at which point whatever back and forth needs to happen for editing will occur. Then wait for December, and see it published :)

  • Olaf Alders commented on Hacktoberfest: Thank You

    You kept me really busy in October. ;) Congratulations on this. One thing you could consider is fixing up the .travis.yml config files for various distributions. For example, many won't have added the latest version of Perl or may not have caching enabled, might not have sudo set to false etc. You could probably automate some of that and send hundreds of PRs! Just blasting the PRs might annoy a few people along the way, but if you check with authors first, I'm sure many would welcome it.
