Throughout 2014 we are going to set a monthly theme instead of choosing speakers and random topics. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the theme: give a lightning talk, demo a project, lead the discussion of a research topic, whatever etc. The themes are not meant to restrict the meetings, rather to cultivate ideas and inspire people to share knowledge.
The topic of CPAN can cover anything related to using the CPAN: installing and upgrading modules, tools to work with CPAN, releasing and maintaining modules (e.g. Dist::Zilla), adopting modules, etc.
We are currently planning on the following, but all are welcome to add more at any time:
• Lee: Using cpanm
• Ryan: Getting a PAUSE ID
• Steve: metacpan API
Join us at 6pm for PerlJam where we go over beginner level topics. The topic for this month has yet to be determined.
