Wiki - Hackathon
The Frozen Perl Hackathon will take place on Sunday, February 8th, the day after the conference. We will be reserving space for the hackathon soon, details to follow.
Last year we could accommodate approximately 25 people and expect similar accommodations this year. Please sign up below with your name and what you're interested in working on. If you're interested in leading a project work session please say so.

It's a block away from the Frozen Perl Venue and best of all, we got it for FREE!
1st floor conference room, wireless internet coverage is pretty good.
Note that you will need to purchase a wireless id for the conference if you want wireless at the hackathon!
10:00 - 6:00
Unless There is a consensus to start earlier or later, or to end later, this will be our scheduled time.
Add your votes in this section if you would like a different time for the Hackathon.
Our budget is tighter this year, so we probably won't provide food.
(edit: We MAY be able to afford a couple slices of pepperoni, but still come prepared if that doesn't happen - either way, bring a few red bulls!)
Projects and Project Leaders
Project leaders, please post below the project name you'd like to lead along with your name. Focused projects with delegable objectives are good, but we are open to anything. Some suggestions: Parrot, Moose, resume writing, Catalyst, Bricolage/Krang, Jifty.
- Rakudo & Parrot - Patrick Michaud (Pm)
- Testing Your Module - Steven Lembark
- Rakudo & Parrot - Patrick Michaud will lead a hackathon focusing on Rakudo and Parrot. Our objective is to enable people to contribute directly to Rakudo and Perl 6. The first part of the hackathon will be done as a presentation covering several key areas: (1) building Rakudo, (2) reviewing and updating the Perl 6 official test suite, including getting all participants a commit bit to the suite, (3) submitting bug reports and patches for Rakudo Perl, (4) a brief review of the Rakudo compiler architecture, and (5) review of current items where we can use some help (code, tests, website, and wiki updates). In the remainder of the hackathon we will focus on getting people to work directly on the items described in the presentation. Ideally people coming to the hackathon should already have a subversion client and development environment available to them.
- Introductory Hackathon - (NOTE: I may not be there at 10am sharp, but will be in soon thereafter, so feel free to check out what others are working on. --Seth) I noticed last year that several people showed up to the hackathon with no clear project to work on, and some who signed up but didn't show. To these people: come to the hackathon this time, no matter your skill level. For this project we'll cover the basics of getting a module CPAN-ready. We'll provide an overview of installer and starter modules such as Module::Build/Install/Starter, write POD and some simple tests, and cover developer-related aspects of CPAN (with examples). If there is time, interest, and a group of participants still remaining after the basics are covered, I'm thinking we could all hack on Twitter::CLI, a command-line interface to Twitter I'm working on that allows multiple interfaces and and plugins.
- Test Your Module - Once you have the idea for a module, finding ways to test it effectively are not always easy. This would give people a chance to work through Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook, deciding how to apply the material to their own modules -- or to a module they use that does not have adequate tests.
