> Issue #13 - October 24, 2011
> You can read the newsletter on the web, if you prefer.
> I'd like to embark on a new series of promotions for the Perl Weekly
> and I need your help in this. By far the best source of new
> subscribers is referrals by already satisfied users.
> So if you like the Perl Weekly, I'd like to ask you to forward this
> issue to your co-workers and suggest they subscribe.
> Now to the posts:
> Mojolicious 2.0 released: Perl real-time web framework
> Congratulation to Sebastian Riedel (sri) and the rest of the
> Mojolicious team! A number of significant changes were listed in the
> announcement. For example the minimum required version of perl was
> moved up to 5.10.1 and Morbo was added. Morbo is the self-restarting
> development web server that just works, even on Windows.
> Teaching a Modern Perl Class in NYC!
> John Napiorkowski is running an 8-week long Perl class introducing
> Modern Perl to people new to Perl. This seems like a great
> opportunity to send a friend of you to learn Perl on a very low cost
> training class.
> Module testing basics
> Jacinta Richardson has just sent out the latest issue of the Perl
> Tips. This is a great overview of why you need to write automated
> tests. She is also describing the two major testing strategies:
> White Box Testing and Black Box Testing. In addition, if you were
> subscribed to their perl-tips newsletter, you'd get a discount on
> their next training course.
> Dreamwidth News
> After more than 2 months of absence, Denise, one of the two owners
> of the site, has posted a longish update on what's going on at
> Dreamwidth. In case you don't know, DreamWidth is an open source
> fork of the LiveJournal system with a very open policy of publishing
> Simple config for the perl debugger
> Chisel gives some very useful tips on how to configure the built-in
> command line debugger of Perl.
> CPAN modules for parsing User-Agent strings
> Another excellent post by Neil Bowers comparing modules to parse the
> User-Agent strings passed by browsers to web servers. It sounds like
> a simple problem but due to the 'interesting' decisions made by the
> browser authors it became an annoyance. Having so many different
> solutions to this problem just adds to the confusion so I think it
> is great Neil compared them and recommended one.
> Taming Pod::Weaver, part 2 - Plugins, Sections and Bundles
> Yanick Champoux continuous describing how to use Pod::Weaver.
> Specifically he described plugins, sections and bundles
> ElasticSearch::Sequence - a blazing fast ticket server
> Clinton Gormley is considering ditching RDBM for his next
> application and using ElasticSearch as the only data store. For this
> he wanted to have a human friendly way to get unique sequence
> numbers from ElasticSearch.
> Why do you want new major features in core?
> Some people complain that 5.12 and 5.14 have not added many new user
> visible features to Perl. Leon Timmermans asks why do we want them.
> I think the more interesting question would be 'What new features do
> you want in core Perl?' and that's what some people answered. That's
> what you should also consider and post as a comment.
> Splicing two sockets in Perl (request for help)
> Peter Makholm describes a sequence of operations he has implemented
> several times already - something like a proxy - and how this was
> getting frustrating to do so and how it was not working really well.
> So he is proposing a new module to wrap splice(2) of Linux.
> Parrot 3.9.0 'Archaeopteryx' Released
> Posted by Jonathan 'Duke' Leto
> Perl 6
> An optimizer lands, bringing native operators
> Jonathan Worthington describes his work that will be included in the
> October release of Rakudo. This brings the performance of Rakudo, in
> some very specific cases, to be - let me be careful here - not too
> far from that of Perl 5.
> Event reports
> yapc asia: awesome
> Lovely report by Ricardo Signes (rjbs)
> Listing of all (?) the blogs posts about YAPC::Asia Tokyo 2011
> Daisuke Maki (lestrrat) points out that they collected more than 150
> blog posts about YAPC::Asia. Most of them are in Japanese of course
> but there are a number of entries in English for the rest of us. I
> think this is awesome to have so much publicity and to provide some
> sort of recognition to the bloggers themselves.
> German Perl Workshop
> This is the report of the 3rd day of the German Perl Workshop by
> Wolfgang Kinkeldei. Links to the previous reports can be found in
