Dear Lazyblog

Greetings Perl community,

i will give in a week a Talk about Perl - at a German Linux Conference. It will be part technical but in part also giving the people a realistic insight into our community. Slides will be as always on and slideshare.

So but the reason i tell you this now is because i want to make sure i don't miss the major recent trends. So if you have this cool Perl project / tool / module/ API which is not that often talked about but should - please let me…

What is the Perl community?

After my last rant about the p5 roadmap I wanted get technical again, but ... this last post about a link collection brought me back.:

YATOP5R (y a thought on Perl roadmap) [rewritten]

You propably seen that rant as well as what caused it. I'm neither core dev nore have 20 Modules on CPAN, but I have talked to lot of people online and in person over the years.

programming from brain perspective

As I talked during YAPC::EU with fellow Perl 6 fanboy mäsak about his (GOTO considered awesome) and mine (Perl 6 operators) recent talk I just summarized something I said and something he said and its just one little thought you might find nice too: Because normally as programmers we see it as as best practice from engineering point and so called best practices to have small manageable units (blocks, sub's classes,) and link them together as loosely as possible.

5 part YAPC::EU report in German

unless you already seen my tweets and you understand German - you maybe wanna read this thread in the biggest German Perl forum.
