    Best Perl Hackathon ever -- a good time was had by all, and lots of great progress was made on a variety of Perl projects! Thanks to Jim and David for making it happen!

    A good time was had by all -- but, since I was one of the organizers, I'm biased. Nevertheless, we had at least 24 participants ranging from people making their first contributions to open source software projects to current and former Perl 5 release managers and pumpkings. Every attendee either individually or as part of a group made a contribution toward a patch toward Perl 5, a CPAN distribution or some other open source project. I feel that this proves that the model of a "distributed Perl hackathon" is one that any Perlmongers group or other Perl user group can adopt and implement.

    I couldn't find a return train to bring me back to Philly so I won't make it.

    Bah. Seem to have spent too much time in a coma-like sleep. Are things still happening?

    Our hackathon starts in 24 hours. If you have signed up to attend but will not be able to do so, please change your RSVP status to "No" so that we can accommodate folks on the wait list.

    If you are coming (off or on wait list) and you have not yet signed up to work on a Project at https://github.com/nyperlmongers/nyperlhackathon2013/wiki/Projects, please do so. (Send me (jkeenan at cpan dot org) your github.com username so we can grant you permissions to edit that wiki page.) We're proceeding on the assumption that we should accommodate everyone who makes an entry on the projects page. So if you are currently on the waitlist but still want to attend, sign up for a project and come on down to Rubenstein Tech Saturday morning.

    Thank you very much.

    A. If you plan to attend in person and have not already signed up, please do so, even though it means appearing on the wait list.

    B. If you signed up to attend when the event was posted several weeks back and now know that you cannot attend in person, please change "Your RSVP" to No so that we can accommodate people on the waiting list.

    2. Read and contribute to the wiki.

    Please sign up on the Projects page to let us know which project you want to work on at the hackathon. You don't have to have a project of your own -- most probably won't -- but we can fit you in with one of the projects posted.

    Note to all: We strongly recommend that pre-hackathon discussions be conducted on the ny.pm mailing list ([masked]), not on this meetup site.

    Rocky: Please read the wiki: https://github.com/nyperlmongers/nyperlhackathon2013/wiki/Getting-Ready-for-the-Hackathon. We can use #hackathon, which has been available for use by Perl hackathons for many years.

      David, sorry, I am not a recruiter and was not intended to break any internal rules.

      January 30, 2013

    • David G.

      No problem. As penance, how about you come to one of our meetups and introduce yourself. Or send a Perl developer from your company if you're a non-technical person yourself.

    My "yes" means "maybe." It would be fun, if I can make it.

    An awesome idea. This would be my first hackathon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
