Quick post-LPW roundup

I've just arrived back from the London Perl Workshop. Lots of very interesting stuff. A big thank you to the organizers! I especially liked:

  • Extending Syntax - Functional Programming meets Macros by LanX;
  • The Internet of Personification by Matt S Trout; and
  • Rewriting …
  • Book Report - October 2014

    This month has been quite a busy one for me, so I haven't had much chance to work on my (in-progress) book. However, I have had some time to start work on a short talk for London Perl Workshop 2014 which will cover some of the OO best practices followed in the book. (At the time of writing, I've not yet heard whether the talk has been accepted/scheduled.)

    Planet Moose - September 2014

    Welcome to Planet Moose, a brief write up on what's been happening in the world of Moose in the past month, for the benefit of those of you who don't have their eyes permanently glued to the #moose IRC channel, or the MetaCPAN recent uploads page.

    If you'd like to contribute some news for next month's issue, you can do so on the wiki.

    Moose

    Moose 2.1212 fixes some warnings under the Perl 5.21 development branch. (See also perl RT#121638.) Moose 2.1213 fixes a memory leak throwing exceptions. If you're already using Moose 2.11xx or 2.12xx, then it's probably worth upgrading to Moose 2.1213. If you're on an older version of Moose, then also consider upgrading but first test that your stuff works with a newer Moose.

    Book Report - September 2014

    As you may be aware, I'm writing a book which will eventually become a free e-book. (Oh how I'm beginning to hate the e- prefix on everything vaguely related to computers. Or should I call them e-machines?) This is my initial report on how I'm getting along.
