Cees will be giving a talk about Rose::DB and we have a guest speaker giving us this talk live from San Francisco...
Title: I've Got 99 Problems But CPAN Ain't One
Abstract: As software developers, we face lots of esoteric problems. And if you use Perl, then you have probably faced the CPAN problem. Shifting versions, incompatible interfaces, and test failures in dependent CPAN modules can suddenly break your application. In this presentation, you'll see how solve the CPAN problem, remove tough stains from fabrics, and become a better lover by using Pinto to create a private CPAN.
Bio: Jeffrey Thalhammer is an independent software developer and consultant. He is best known as the creator of Perl::Critic, the widely used static analyzer for Perl. Jeffrey is also a scorpio and co-organizer of the San Francisco Perl Mongers.
Thanks to SiteSuite and Cees who arranges that for us, for allowing us to use their facilities last night and shouting us all dinner.
A huge thanks to Jeffrey and Cees who gave very interesting and well prepared presentations on Pinto and Rose::DB respectively. Personally, I found both talks left me with new things to explore. Hopefully we can arrange to get those up on SlideShare or similar.
Welcome to Andy and Chris who attended Sydney PM for the first time.
Finally, thanks to everyone who attended. Hopefully you will join us again next month! Speaking of which, anyone who would like to volunteer a venue please speak up!
(It seems that Chris found us from the above blog post... so PM'ers should consider posting a notice here to be potentially worth their time!)
