There are two Hackathons going to take place in close proximity in time,
but quite far away. One in Berlin and the other one in New York. The former
is the traditional annual QA Hackathon with a number of people flying in
from various other places of the globe, therefore they still need help with
some funding. I am happy to tell you that thanks to the growing number of
advertisers in the Perl Weekly, and thanks to the people who contribute to
the Perl Weekly via Gratipay ("https://gratipay.com/PerlWeekly/") I could
use some of that money to sponsor the QA Hackathon! (The still need some

New York City Perl Hackathon 2015
I wish I could participate... (May 2, 2015, New York)
With the Raspberry Pi and other SoC (System on a Chip) devices it is time
for Perl to start using accelometers. There aren't a lot of CPAN modules
doing this, but Device::LSM303DLHC handling the LSM303DLHC chip can
provide access to the readings. Let's see what can you do with it?
DBIx::Class::Report - generate ad-hoc dbic classes from SQL
Wouldn't it be nice if we could just take a chunk of arbitrary SQL and get
a resultset from it? - Ovid asks and responds to himself with the release
of DBIx::Class::Report. But when would you need it?
How you average numbers matters
We all know (or should know) that computations in a computer are not exact,
but when Sinan puts it in front of us it is still very disturbing.
Test::More in serious need of review, be afraid!
Exodist is planning to release a new version of Test::More to CPAN. If that
version breaks some a CPAN module, that CPAN module will become
uninstallable. (Well, sort of.). Not only that. If the new version starts
to report success when something failed then your code might be full of
bugs while everything looks fine. In case you want to neither of this
will happen, you can put some energy into looking at the changes and
testing the new version.
The Perl QA Hackathon is still looking for Sponsors
The QA Hackathon is an excellent event and dispite its name it is not only
about Quality Assurnce. It became a more generice event when some of the
people maintaining the core infrastructure needed for the Perl world get
together for some much needed face-to-face conversation. I had the luck
participating in two of such events, and now I had the privilage to even
provide some funds to run the event. If you, or your company relies on
Perl, this is a very good place to ensure the continous improvement of
the whole ecosystem around Perl.
Dancer + Jasmine
Absolutely awesome! Yanick had to test his Angular.js based code. So what
did he do? He wrote a plugin for Perl Dancer. Jasmine is a
new Dancer::Plugin::Test::Jasmine allows you to integrate the tests
written in Jasmin with the test you write for your Perl-based back-end.
