Pull Request - Mission Accomplished

According to the Wikipedia, "The Mission Accomplished" speech was a televised address by United States President George W. Bush on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003.

My journey so far has been very satisfying. I have had some low times in between but I kept it going. To do this for such a long time consistently, you have to have a real motivation. All credit goes to one man, Neil Bowers, whose contributions inspired me to take this challenge. Every time my PR gets accepted a…

Performance Report - August 2018

Belated Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Indian friends.

Last month, August 2018, was really busy for me, personally and professionally. My 9 years old daughter had summer break from school. So lots of action all the time together with the nearly 2 years old twins. Best part of August was attending The Perl Conference in Glasgow with the entire family. My first Perl Conference ever and it didn't disappoint me. We, as a family, got to explore the city of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Already looking forwar…

Daily CPAN uploads: Mission continued...

I still remember the blog A year of CPAN uploads by Barbie published on 22nd March 2015. In his blog, he mentioned my name and my intention to break his record. At that point in time, I was at 150 odd days old. I was no where near the Barbie's record number. However I had made up my mind, no matter what I will go past his magic number. One day not only I crossed the magic number 370 but I reached 1000 days mark.

the event. To make it even more fun, I brought my young family with me to explore the city as well.

I arrived at the Glasgow Central railway station about 7pm on Tuesday 14th Aug. I was staying at Rennin McKenzie Hotel, just 2 minutes walk fr…

The Perl Conference - what is new?

Before I say anything, I must say, I am who I am today because of the wonderful Perl Community. I have been attending London Perl Workshop since 2012. Ever since I have seen plenty of improvements as far as the quality of talks, venue management and other activities.

However there is one thing I still see missing all these years unfortunately. I am saying these based on my personal experience. I still remember my first time at LPW, I got to see all the greats physically other than all the great talks. When I came back from the event, I tried to analyse what I liked most and what I mis…
