RPerl in Paris - Part II
Hello everyone, and Happy New Year!
Previously, on "RPerl Around The World", the team was in Paris for a meeting with the Paris Perl Mongers, and then left for the London Perl Workshop.
We are now back in Paris for another meeting at the FPH building (Fondation pour le Progrès de l'Homme). Every Thursday, the FPH hosts a Linux technical meeting, providing a place for programmers to work on their various projects. Thanks to Emmanuel Seyman, we got to meet two of the Linux programmers, Stéphane Gigandet and Pierre Slamich. They work on a collaborative open source Perl project called Open Food Facts.
Open Food Facts is a food products database. It is a non-profit project meant to give as much information as possible to consumers regarding the food products they buy. The project was launched in 2012 by Stéphane Gigandet. You can learn all about it here: https://world.openfoodfacts.org/
This Paris meeting was an opportunity for us to learn about what Open Food Facts does, and for them to learn about RPerl and its possible use with their database platform.
