The Schedule


Distributing a Perl module via Bioconda (Miniconda)
Andrea Telatin

Perl has a long history of serving the bioinformatics community, and nowadays "Miniconda" has become the most used package and dependency manager for bioinformaticians, with a very active channel called "BioConda". In this lighting talk I'll use BioConda as an example of bringing Perl tools (and modules) to Miniconda.

In spite of Miniconda being born in the Python world, 10% of all Bioconda packages are Perl modules, and several highly downloaded programs are written in Perl.



Asynchronously Parallelish Testing In Raku
Vadim Belman

I needed this for Vikna, I implemented this. There were no escape and Test::Async came to be...



MSYS2 and You
Zaki Mughal

Deploying Perl on Windows with certain native dependencies can be tricky. This talk shows how to use MSYS2 to access many of the same packages as on Unix-likes which opens up some interesting possibilities.



80% now, 20% never - Adventures in contentEditable
Max Maischein

A look at Carnet notes and how Perl can make editing them easier on the desktop



The Perl Community Roadmap
Will 'the Chill' Braswell

Finally, the Perl interpreter has a strong technical roadmap through v7.0 and beyond! Now we can turn our attention to the larger questions of where our community is headed, and how can we become the masters of our own collective destiny? Let's figure out how to "Put Perl Back On Top"!




Net::Matrix::Webhook implements a webhook, so you can easily post messages to your matrix chat rooms via HTTP requests. It uses IO::Async to start a web server and connect as a client to matrix. It will then forward your messages.



Quick Debugging in Vim
Tina Müller

Are you typing Data::Dumper->Dump (or similar code) manually to debug? There's help!



A Year of Alien and Platypus
Graham Ollis

A number of new features have been added to the alternative toolchain duo of Alien and Platypus. I'd just like to cover them briefly so that developers are aware of them and can take advantage.


State of Pull Request Club
Kivanc Yazan

Pull Request Club took over CPAN Pull Request Challenge at 2019. Come see how many people signed up, got assignments and contributed to open source. Also see how to join the club.
