We are very pleased to have join us in person special guest Doug Bell (preaction) for a night of two talks.

One talk is about using Travis-CI, a free continuous integration testing service, for Perl projects, and maximizing Travis's effectiveness. This talk introduces Graham Knop's Perl Travis Helpers, gets you started using Travis-CI, and shows how to configure Travis to cover edge cases like very old Perls and missing optional modules/features (using Devel::Hide).

The other talk is an introduction to Rex, a Perl-based server configuration management system. This talk introduces Rex, goes through simple configuration and tasks, and touches on some of the more powerful features of Rex such as the CMDB (Configuration Management Database).

Most UAVs out there right now use analog radio and video transmission systems. With the Raspberry Pi or other single-board computers, UAVs can gain the flexibility of a full-featured computer, while minimizing latency for control and video feedback. Learn how Perl can be used to integrate these systems in one of the biggest changes to the growing field of First Person Video quadcopters.

We are very lucky to have special guest Timm Murray join us in person for an exciting presentation.

Mojolicious is a web application framework with lots of unique features and "batteries included" functionality. In this talk Joel Berger, a core Mojolicious contributor, will introduce the framework with special attention on these differences. These features include content negotiation, built-in testing framework, websockets, command-line system and more. He will even demostrate ways that you can use Mojolicious to improve non-Mojolicious applications.

When using Catalyst its common to see syntax like "$c->model(..." and "$c->view(..." but what really is a Catalyst component and what is the right way to use them?  In this discussion I will dive deep into Catalyst component construction and review some of the most common patterns and prior Art on CPAN.

John Napiorkows­ki (JNAP) will be our remote, special guest.  He is the current maintainer for Catalyst and a prolific contributor to the Perl community.

This event is a continuation from last month and will EXPLAIN how to implement much of what Phil Vacca talked about for full-text searching with Postgres but now with DBIx::Class (aka DBIC.) Steve Nolte will drive a demo starting with the basics of DBIC, share important debugging tips, impress you with some sweet helpers, and warn you about some important performance considerations.

Tonight we'll gather for a swell yet unprepared discussion on databases.

Do you remember back when you ran your own development infrastructure, such as continuous integration servers and source code repositories. With the rise of services like Travis and GitHub, those days are quickly fading. So why the heck are you still running your own CPAN? But what's that? You don't have a CPAN? Well let's see what we can do about that...

Stratopan.com provides private CPAN repositories in the cloud, so you can build your application anywhere and get the right Perl modules every time. Stratopan also has powerful tools to help you manage changes to your Perl stack. Whether you’re an indie consultant, small startup, or large enterprise, Stratopan can radically simplify and improve your build story. Let me (Jeffrey Thalhammer) show you how.​

RapidApp is an extension to Catalyst - the Perl MVC framework. It provides a feature-rich extended development stack, as well as easy access to common out-of-the-box application paradigms, such as powerful CRUD-based front-ends for DBIx::Class models, user access and authorization, RESTful URL navigation schemes, pure Ajax interfaces with no browser page loads, templating engine with front-side CMS features, declarative configuration layers, and more.
