Jeff Thalhammer will be speaking at our October meeting. Note the date is one week after the normal 4th Tuesday of the month.
Managing Perl modules is a major pain. The public CPAN is constantly changing and the toolchain doesn't give you precise control over module versions. One solution is to create a private CPAN, but that takes time and energy you'd rather spend building your application. What if you could just toss all your modules into the cloud and instantly create a customized private CPAN that you can access anytime, anywhere?
StratoPAN is an upcoming web service for managing Perl modules in the cloud. In this presentation, I will demonstrate the StratoPAN prototype and we'll explore some common use cases. You'll be able to play along with the demo, so bring your laptop and you'll have your own CPAN in the sky before the night is over. I'll also explain the pitfalls of traditional module management techniques and the virtues of using private CPANs. Acid and tie-dye are optional.
