"Short and sweet, but definitely a good value PR!"


As Neil categorized it in the title of this post, My first PR Challenge ( Poe::Component::DirWatch ) was definitely short , sweet and packed with value. When I attempted to work on this module I didn't find any issues to work on via the bug list. This lead me to jump into the PR Challenge irc chat where I got help from rjbs and ether on what I can do to submit my first pull request for this module. Of course the obvious answer was "Use the module" but while in the chat room rjbs did point out a bug ( documented here Moose::Classes ) that I ( without much experience on Moose) would not have been able to point out right away. After knowing this, I read some more Moose documentation and worked on my PR Challenge code .

This PR Challenge allow me to learn about Moose, namespace::clean and Test::CleanNamespaces ( The last 2 modules seem to be a better solution for my PR but I haven't installed the modules yet ) .

Thanks to everyone who pointed me in the right direction for my first PR Challenge.
