I was quite happy to see Samuel Kaufman's post on how to stream your local PM/whatever meetings. We've been experimenting with streaming our Toronto.pm meetings for the past few months. Last night we had our annual September lightning talks and I feel like we finally got it right -- or at least we're getting very close. We had a laptop set up at the front of the room. Each speaker used this laptop and a USB key with their…
One of the pain points of MetaCPAN is that URLs don't always point where you would expect them to. For example, should a script be found under metacpan.org/module/*? Does that make sense? What happens when someone releases a module with the name of the script? Please note that we're talking about the URLs on the search front end, not the API.
We've struggled for a long while with questions like this. How do we structure URLs on metacpan.org which have a sensible hierarchy? URLs (lik…
This past Thursday we tried something new at Toronto.pm We decided to try having our in-person meeting also available online via Google Hangout. So far all feedback has been positive and it allowed us to have a meeting of 15 people rather than just the 10 who made the trip to our usual location. We had participants from as far as Texas and Alberta as well as some local mongers who weren't able to make it to the location but were still interested in the topic being presented.
We're going to make a few tweaks to the setup in the actual meeting room in order to let the online particip…
I'll be speaking about using (and abusing) the MetaCPAN API on day 2 of YAPC::NA. If you think you might be attending (or even if you're not), I thought I'd post some links to some helpful info. No, you don't need to do any prep for this talk, but for those who are interested, this is just some background info that will help you get your head around MetaCPAN.
This talk will touch on and expand on some of the points I discussed last year, so you could have a quick look at ="http://www.slideshare.net/oalders/abusing-the-metac…
Some interesting stuff has been said today on The Four Major Problems with CPAN, Don't release experiments to CPAN and CPAN is for experimentation and I hope that never changes.
If you haven't read these posts yet, I encourage you to do so. They've all got interesting things to say…
