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.

Indeed, but that also needs to be generated and since we have to generate a file, I feel it's better to generate the markdown variant.

Ok, please can we notice how many of these features Perl has already had for 20 years!

+Roboprogs  Perl 5 was released in 1994 (ref: http://perldoc.perl.org/perlhist.html) Javascript was released in 1996 (ref: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/A_re-introduction_to_JavaScript). The features that ES6 adds, those that mimic Perl, and are being touted as new and wonderful, have been in Perl since before Javascript existed and are basically unchanged since then.

I am happy that Javascript is becoming a better. more usable language. I object to the claims that it is being born of their own creativity and not on the backs of the innovation of other languages before it. JS's strict mode is enabled using the phrase 'use strict' for goodness sakes! Exactly the Perl mechanism, except since "use" doesn't mean anything in Javascript, it is just a magic literal. The list of stolen features goes on and on. Again I don't care that they are stolen, just say "we are taking these from Perl, since, for all its warts, it got a lot of things right".

+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?

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.

Have you played with Mojolicious? It's the Perl competitor to node. We also have a non blocking mongo client library called Mango and even a young odm called Mandel. Give em a try if you need a break from server side JavaScript
usr/bin/js /* * test_mongo.js * adapted from mongoosejs.com * * Getting up to speed with MongoDB, Mongoose as an ORM, ORMs in general, * and Node.js. */ // Testing direct from http://mongoosejs.com/ // initiallizing connection to MongoDB var mongoose = require('mongoose'); ...

Will look into it.

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