Jeff Thalhammer will be speaking on Tuesday October 30th at 7pm on his
new private CPAN cloud service. We have a limit of 30 attendees, so
please RSVP if you think you want to attend. Craigslist has generously
offered to host this meeting.


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.
