YAPC::EU - over 200 participants

YAPC::EU Granada has just passed 200 confirmed participants already passing two previous YAPC::EUs and there is still more than a month to go.

YAPC::NA in Salt Lake City gained more than 100 additional participants in the last 30 days, but they used a PR firm. I wonder if YAPC::EU will also get another 100 people. I try to log the numbers for future reference, but I am not sure how to help the organizers re…

Has YAPC::NA 2016 been announced?

I don't seem to remember any blog post here or on TPF. Has the location, time or the organizers of YAPC::NA been announced?

Web application development course before YAPC::EU

Just a reminder that I am running a 2-days long course before YAPC::EU in Granada, Spain.

In the course I am going to teach web application development using Perl Dancer and MongoDB in the back-end, and AngularJS in the front-end.

Actually, we are going to see a version of the front-end code using plain HTML with JQuery and Handlebars, and then another version using AngularJS.

There are still places left in the course.

Bounty for fixing CPAN modules

Yesterday I had this idea of creating a site where people and companies could offer bounties for fixing specific bugs in a piece of open source code. Then I ran a search and found Bountysource.


I wonder, have you or the company where you work ever used it? Would your company be ready to offer bounties for fixing specific issues in a CPAN module or even in core perl? (bugs or new features alike.)


Would such bounties be a better way for TPF to spend their grant-money?

Which CPAN distributions include jquery.js ?

Further playing with the JavaScript based view of CPAN I've added a new page in the lab called files. You can type in a name of a file (e.g jquery.js) and it will list you all the distributions that include this file.

You can also search for directory names such as js or css.
