  • YAPC Buffalo bid document Mon, 26-Jun-2006 by Jim Brandt

    In the interest of providing more examples of bids from the past to help future bidders, I'm posting the Buffalo bid here. Read on for details. Note that we had a wiki up with details, pictures, etc., but the wiki has since gone away. Proposed dates: To keep with past years, it seems June 16-18, 2004 would be best. However, we can be flexible with other dates in June. Facilities.

  • Nicholas Clark's "Improve Perl 5" Grant Completed Sun, 21-May-2006 by Curtis "Ovid" Poe
    in: Grants

    I was going to announce Nicholas Clark's progress on his Improve Perl 5 when I announced this quarter's grant votes. However, the summary below isn't quite accurate. It was sent to me on May 11th, and as of a May 20th email to me, I'm informed that even Nicholas' TODO items have been accomplished, along with documentation of user pragmata. His grant appears to be finished and a great

  • May Votes Sun, 21-May-2006 by Curtis "Ovid" Poe
    in: Grants

    Just a quick update about the grant applications for May, 2006. Regrettably, no applications were approved. We generally don't publish the rejected applications because we don't want to make the applicants feel awkward, but I do have the unenviable task of informing the applicants not only that their grants were not approved, but also giving them a rough summary of why the grants were not approved. For this round, it

  • perl6-users mailing list Wed, 17-May-2006 by Ask Bjørn Hansen

    Between Parrot and Pugs Perl 6 is slowly but surely getting to a state where it's actually usable. We created the first mailing list for "Perl6 users". Eventually most of the regular perl mailing lists will be for both Perl 5 and Perl 6 users, but for now it makes sense to have a list specifically for users of Perl 6 Subscribe by sending a mail to perl6-users-subscribe@perl.org

  • When to make bids public Tue, 09-May-2006 by Jim Brandt

    Jeremy Fluhmann responded to my Call for Venue post saying he'd be interested to see the other bids when they get posted. This brings up a good point: when should the bids be made public? My thought was that they would be made public after the Conferences Committee has selected the host group. This allows people to see what we voted on and it's a good reference for next year.

  • Call for Venue--YAPC::NA::2007 Wed, 03-May-2006 by Jim Brandt

    Can't figure out how you're going to get to Chicago for YAPC::NA this year and wish it was in your city? Want to meet Perl luminaries, but aren't sure how? Want to contribute to Perl without writing a new MVC framework? If you answer yes to at least two of these questions, you might be just the person we want to host YAPC next year. But you can't host if

  • YAPC::NA 2006 schedule published Wed, 26-Apr-2006 by Andy Lester

    Josh McAdams and Pete Krawczyk have just released the YAPC::NA 2006 schedule on the conference website. This year there will be four rooms of talks going on for the three days of the conference. We are lucky enough to have both Larry Wall and Damian Conway giving keynote addresses. Of course, there will be a lot of Perl 6, Pugs, and Parrot talks, was well as the usual barrage of

  • Artistic License 2.0 public review Fri, 21-Apr-2006 by Ask Bjørn Hansen

    "Allison":http://www.theperlreview.com/Interviews/allison-randal-20060412.html posted the "Artistic License 2.0 public review":http://use.perl.org/article.pl?sid=06/04/20/2042256 announcement to use.perl.org today. bq.. Part of the Perl 6 RFC process in 2000 identified the need to update the Artistic License 211 and 346 From 2000-2001, a group of interested Perl users on the perl6-licenses mailing list worked on a first draft of an updated Artistic License. In 2003, The Perl Foundation started an extensive review process with independent legal counsel

  • Helping others write better Perl Mon, 17-Apr-2006 by Andy Lester

    Something I think we can all do in the Perl community is help spread the knowledge of how to use this marvelous tool. There are so many layers to the onion, and some people may only know about the outermost layer. The other day I saw an entry in Erica Sadun's blog where she'd hacked together a quick Perl program for some user interaction that then generates URLs and fires

  • "Improve Perl 5" status report Thu, 13-Apr-2006 by Curtis "Ovid" Poe
    in: Grants

    Here's the latest status update for Nicholas Clark's Improve Perl 5 grant. As usual, he's gotten quite a bit done. Completed "Reblessing references interacts badly with overloading" For blead I've moved the flag for "overloading" from the reference to the referent, which logically is where it should always have been. This isn't binary compatible, so isn't a viable solution for 5.8.x. For that, the flag stays in the same place,

  • Perl Foundation projects looking for volunteers Wed, 05-Apr-2006 by Andy Lester
    in: Projects

    A recent thread in the London.pm mailing list got people saying that they wanted to donate some time to The Perl Foundation, but didn't know where their efforts could be used. Here are two places to start: Jim Brandt, who organized YAPC::NA 2004 in Buffalo, is looking for volunteers to help with a Perl-based conference system. See his TPF blog post for details I'm looking for someone to write up

  • Nominations for the White Camel Awards 2006 Sat, 01-Apr-2006 by Ask Bjørn Hansen
    in: Awards

    Every year the group of past recipients gives out three new "White Camel Awards":http://www.perl.org/advocacy/white_camel/ to recognize a few of the many people who give their time and energy to help the Perl community. Since we don't know nearly as many of the contributors and contributions as we'd like, we are looking for input on who should be considered. Keywords: Community service Unsung heroes better than well known ones

  • I need a perl-based conference system Fri, 31-Mar-2006 by Jim Brandt

    As TPF Conferences Chair, I try to help eager, excited organizers put together a YAPC. Ever since I ran YAPC in Buffalo in 2004 I've wanted to put together something called Conference::Toolkit that would solve all of the YAPC web-site needs. Well, given my TPF duties, I honestly don't have the time to do this right. And I want it done right. I want to put together the best conference
