This month, Doug Bell (http://preaction.me) will be giving two short talks.
One talk is about using Travis-CI, a free continuous integration testing service (http://travis-ci.org), for Perl projects, and maximizing Travis's effectiveness. This talk introduces Graham Knop (https://github.com/haarg)'s Perl Travis Helpers (https://github.com/travis-perl/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 (http://metacpan.org/pod/Devel::Hide)).
The other talk is an introduction to Rex, a Perl-based server configuration management system (http://rexify.org). This talk was given informally at an office hours last year, but now it's a real talk with real slides! 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).
Doors open at 6:30. Presentations start at 7:00.
