  • Commented on HOWTO: Youtube live streaming of a talk
    Thank you very much for sharing this ! I think we'll try this out at the next Paris.pm technical meeting. It's always a pain to upload /convert videos... Well I've been told, as I'm always too lazy to do it...

    Nice porting experience :) It should motivate others to do so...

  • Posted p5-mop, a gentle introduction to Damien "dams" Krotkine

    I guess that you've heard about p5-mop by now.

    Moose into the core of Perl. Moose provides a Meta Object Protocol (MOP) to Perl. So does p5-mop, however p5-mop is implemented in…

    MooX::LvalueAttribute - improved

    New and Improved!

  • Commented on Mapping the MOP to Moose
    So, I hope it's not too much off topic, but what I liked in Ruby, is that attributes variables have a leading sigil '@'. I don't like the syntax (the sigil), but I like the idea: it makes it obvious...

  • Commented on Perl 7
    @dolmen : For me, Perl 6 has not failed at all as being a next generation language. But it's not anymore "the next Perl". It's a different language. So it should not be in the Perl namespace. Or so I...
  • Commented on On the version number succeeding Perl 5
    Joel : I don’t see why using year in version means dropping backward compatibility. That said, I think yearly version naming is probably better suited for “distributions” (be it Linux, or anything that is a bunch of packages). I would...
  • Commented on On the version number succeeding Perl 5
    I would definitely add in the list of things to ship in Perl 7: include Moo or Moose by default. I think it’s very important to have a proper object system available without having to install it from CPAN. My...
  • Commented on Perl 7
    Yes, Many linux distributions have switched to year related version naming (Mandriva, Gentoo come to mind). Perl 2013.1 for first (or second, depending if we start at 0) quarterly release. Sounds nice to me....
  • Commented on Perl 7
    I agree with Joel Berger, I vote for Perl 7, and Perl 8 not too long after. I don't see why Perl 5 should continue suffering from Perl 6 diversion anymore. One of the 2 languages should have his name...

    Mass-Testing Dancer's Plugins

    So, as I said at YAPC::EU 2012, one thing that remains to be done before Dancer 2 can be released : migrating the plugins, making sure they work with it.

  • Commented on Explaining Web Programming via Plack
