Masterbation With Fuirts

My Perl 2010

As in past years, I want to again take a look back at the past year.

addition to many smaller things I've mainly worked for the OTRS AG , which will also go to January 2011 so on. After that I will do other things. I will certainly this report.

am This year, I also switched from Kephra on Padre . The main reason was that I was in Padre quickly integrate their own plugins to simplify my life. But of course I will not leave Kephra of course!

Otherwise I have regained two Blog Posts for O'Reilly .

in February is now the 13th edition of $ foo appeared. This is also an article by the XING appeared -makers.

In March we had the opportunity to Perl at the CeBIT represent . I was really surprised how many people have come to us at the booth. We almost always something was going on. In the state of Linux Hotel I could then also give a lecture on Perl .

mid-April Perl 5.12.0 was released . Since then, the release cycles of Perl have changed. There is now a monthly development release (the last was published on 20 December - Perl 5.13.8 ) and more time in a stable release. Perl 5.12.2 is currently (with Perl 5.12.3 in preparation).

In May there was the 14th Spending $ foo. Also in May there was the big Perl Survey 2010 and the first results were then posted on the German Perl-Workshop . The final results are now also online .

at the German Perl-Workshop I could not participate because I'm busy professional full. Unfortunately, somewhat fewer people in Stuttgart were there.

In July there was the first release of Rakudo *, a usable Perl 6 implementation. I started to play around a bit - but nothing more. Right in time course we have a Perl 6 package of $ foo laced.

At the YAPC:: EU in August I could not even not participate. At the time I worked on the SaaS solution OTRS (OTRS OnDemand ). But next year I am very likely to be back with it. Also in August, there was the 15th Spending $ foo.

at an event in August, I was able to participate in spite of all the work: The FrOSCon stood on the plan. We had a booth and then a Perl room, where many papers were presented. I would also like to again thank the helpers. After FrOSCon I've also set up an account Slideshare on which I will upload my lectures in the future.

Also in September, I was move: In Zurich, there was the FrOSCamp . In Switzerland seems to be the subject of "Open Source" not to be spread that far. In any case, I would have liked to see more visitors. But that may be so in the next year would increase even more. Also on the FrOSCamp we had a booth and I gave a few lectures. As always, however, contact with other people from the Open Source area is very nice and important.

In November there was the 16th Spending $ foo. End of November, instead of our traditional Frankfurt Perl Community Workshop . This time we were in the youth club U68 of the DGB. I hope we will go there again in the future.

In the 8th Issue the Perl newspaper published two articles are by me.

December was packed with Perl things: first, I was in Stuttgart, where I have interviewed Dirk Deimeke and Roman Hanhart of Deimhart . Two days later I was in Hamburg and was present at a meeting of the Hamburg Perl Mongers.

As my partner and I have decided the dissolution of our GbR had some things to be done for 2011. New business registrations, etc. But I've also taken some things to a new server, and soon all the mail arrive with respect to $ foo in OTRS.

I also currently working on OPAR, a modules for OTRS extensions. I think I can still start in January 2011 the beta phase.

What else did: I use now Dist:: Zilla one in the development of Perl modules. The module replaces a self-written program that helps me to publish and other steps of modules. A very good module.

Gabor and I have started Perl Ecosystem Group, with which we want to support a number of activities related to Perl. Even for companies that are there member, it will be some activities that we draw on.

In Perl 5.14, which appears in the next year, some patches will find me. There are only Little things and I would hope to have more time for such things, but it's a start ;-)

over the year, I was of course a few times at the Frankfurt Perl Mongers .

Nicholas Perl Mongers meeting of the Hamburg

Earlier this week I was home in Hamburg, but took the chance to stop by once in Hamburg Perl Mongers. In the small but fine round, I then "self marketing" spoken. Perlspezifisches nothing, but had to do with the Perl community. I also have talked about "Perl for Speakers: How to show live demos Perl secure.

I have on occasion times when Screencast ... Record

DeimHart 20: Perl

On Saturday I was in Stuttgart in Shack Space . There, I met with Dirk Deimeke and Roman Hanhart of DeimHart . On the FrOSCamp Dirk asked me if I would not be available for an interview about Perl available.

Shack In Space, we've received for a little tour of the rooms. Hardware enthusiasts will get their costs and the members of some really interesting things are made ( door opener with wireless internet, login via SSH ). Currently the members are looking for a new (larger) Remain and are grateful for support.

We were received there really friendly - and thanks again for the opportunity there to take the interview.

The reception was also equal first for the new recording equipment so that only a little Try it was announced. As all this was built, there was a short briefing and then it was also going on already. We talked for over an hour about everything. Since it was more like a conversation between friends and not a typical interview, the time went by very quickly and I felt very comfortable about it.

I think this interview is all going well, but listen for yourself:

Perl in school - Part I

I have already written to various places that I would like to increase the visibility of Perl and that I sometimes want to introduce in the school Perl . Last Thursday (. 02.12) it was so far - I have a mini-introduction to a 11th School year began.

For me it was like a flashback 10 years ago - the gong, the chairs ,.... The whole was held at the Ricarda-Huch-Schule in Dreieich-Sprendlingen . With two teachers I had previously discussed short, like what to do. Since the whole thing twice, one double is, of course you can not do too much. But the students should have Perl views and write simple scripts. Nothing big, but so much that there is no fear of Perl.

Having said all common things to Perl, I presented the data types in Perl and make a few small pieces done. For most, it was nevertheless a sense of achievement when the first Perl scripts were running.

Perl master I will produce in the short term can not, that's not my goal. But perhaps one or two students to recognize their talent for Perl and stay with us for so ;-)

I'm also an effort at the school, Linux, to force a little more and to show as an alternative to Windows.

I'm looking forward to the next part ...
