Have you wanted to upload a Perl module to CPAN but haven't been sure how to get started? In this workshop, brian d foy (blog, twitter, github) will lead you through the entire process as you upload a real module to CPAN. You'll create a new module, upload it to Github, make some changes, and upload it to CPAN. You'll break your module, upload the broken distribution, then work with others in the class to fix it by sending and merging Github pull requests. Finally, you'll upload the fixed module. By the end of the class you'll probably see your module on MetaCPAN, automatically announced in various places, and you might even get CPAN Testers reports. At every step of the way you'll have someone helping, and you'll even add some comaintainers.
You can be a couple steps ahead of the game by:
