CPAN Workshop in Houston at cPanel
I'm giving my CPAN workshop at cPanel* in Houston on Thursday July 31 at 7pm. In this workshop, you can go from nothing to releasing a CPAN distribute in a couple of hours. We'll go through the entire process using an actual distribution you create and uploading to a live server. You may even get actual CPAN Testers results by the end of the night.
If you plan to be there, make certain that you request a PAUSE account ahead of time.
If you'd like to participate in CPAN Day on August 14, this is a good way to get ready.
Although I won't have time before CPAN Day to do this for other groups, I'd be delighted to give this workshop again wherever someone wants to host it.
[*] cPanel is at 3131 W. Alabama, Houston, TX.
I'm taking suggestions for the namespace to use for this CPAN Workshop. People upload modules to the real CPAN. I'll send a Perl Nerd Merit badge to the suggester of the name we choose. If you don't have a suggestion, verbalize your support for another one. (Wow, I think I want a poll for this on blogs.perl.org!)
Suggestions so far:
