Two scenes from Wayne's World, "cream of some young guy" and "bugs bunny dressing up like a lady bunny" are both unscripted.

The entire opening sequence of Apocalypse Now was unscripted and motivated by various chemical substances leading to an amazing self-destructive scene. According to the documentary about its making, there were guards just off camera to protect the cameramen from the actor.

Github can render README.pod as well. I usually just run: podselect path/to/module.pm > README.pod
Contributing to well known Perl modules is much more accessible for the mere programmer than I expected. And I wouldn't had find out this without participating in the CPAN PR Challenge.

We don't use frameworks yet, but the one I like most so far is Dancer. Never really tried Mojolicious.

My slides are available here: http://jberger.github.io/TestingWithPhantom/ Note that it is easiest to navigate it with page up/page down.

Hmmmm, unfortunately quite a bit of the beginning of the talk is missing and the camera is only on the presenter (me). I hope that there is some additional content in the recordings.

+Dave Jacoby In reading your recent post I see that you are in Purdue land, is there any way we could talk you in to coming up to a Chicago.pm sometime? Are you ever in Chicago, or would you like to?
