ACT being converted to Plack
Our software dev team for YAPC::NA 2012 has begun the task of converting the venerable ACT conference management system, used to run many YAPC's, to Plack. It is currently directly tied to the mod_perl 1.x API. This modernization effort should make ACT more accessible to more developers around the world. Our hope is that this work will be completed and released to GitHub in the next few weeks.
