The Perl Conference 2017 in DC - CFP

I'm super excited to be helping organize this year's largest north-american perl conference! Myself and the other DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop organizers are pitching in big time, and it's all starting to come together. Here is our CFP (which we'll keep posting all over the place) :)

The Perl Conference 2017 in DC (known in a parallel universe as YAPC::NA 2017) will be held at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in a historic suburb of DC, from June 18-23!

We are happy to open up submissions for talks and tutorials, you can see all the details and submit at We are looking for talks about anything interesting to Perl Developers of all experience levels -- from specific techniques and libraries to good ways to organize an agile team or Getting Things Done ... related technologies like your favorite data storage engine or how you automated your home. If in doubt -- submit!

Follow our twitter feed @perlconferences for news and updates. If you have any questions or comments about the CFP please email or for more general inquiries

I hope to see you all there!!

camel-harness version 0.6.0

I am happy to announce the release of version 0.6.0 of camel-harness (former CamelHarness.js) - a small Node.js - Electron - NW.js library for asynchronous handling of Perl 5 scripts.

The library is already an NPM package with a clear, object-based API. Now camel-harness can start long-running, event-driven Perl scripts and communicate continuously with them writing on their STDIN.

As usual, any comments and suggestions are quite welcome!

Any module to convert 'whitish' to 'white'?

A sort of de-inflexion module, so to speak.
