Lightning Talks - My Dev Environment


This month, we're doing lightning talks on the topic of "My Dev Environment". Lightning talks are 5-10 minute, informal presentations. Bring your development environment (editor, IDE, operating system, shell, and otherwise) and tell us the most useful parts.

This is not strictly a Perl talk, so if you know someone who'd like to hear some tips, or would like to give some tips, bring them along.

If you'd like to present your dev environment, leave a comment on the ChicagoPM Meetup page.

Office Hours will be on Thursday the 11th. RSVP for Office Hours on the ChicagoPM Meetup page.

Become a CPAN Author Workshop - brian d foy


This month, brian d foy will be giving a workshop on How to Become a CPAN Author:

Have you wanted to upload a Perl module to CPAN but haven't been sure how to get started? In this workshop, brian d foy (blog, twitter, github) will lead you through the entire process as you upload a real module to CPAN. You'll create a new module, upload it to Github, make some changes, and upload it to CPAN. You'll break your module, upload the broken distribution, then work with others in the class to fix it by sending and merging Github pull requests. Finally, you'll upload the fixed module. By the end of the class you'll probably see your module on MetaCPAN, automatically announced in various places, and you might even get CPAN Testers reports. At every step of the way you'll have someone helping, and you'll even add some comaintainers.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, August 14, just in time for CPAN Day (August 16th).

With this, we are moving Office Hours to August 28th. Additionally, since having Office Hours on Wednesday has been more confusing than helpful, we will change our meeting schedule from "2nd Wednesday and 4th Thursday" to "2nd and 4th Thursdays".
