CPAN Tools In-House
They talked CPAN and how it is the Perl killer application (which it is unquestionably), and how you could (should?) use the CPAN infrastructre (see
CPAN::Site) in-house to distribute and archive your own code (and of course eventually release them on CPAN proper). They also talked about how refactoring is a good thing.
Amougst a bunch of othe topics (the session was a collection of lightning talks) they talked about the
PARmodule which is something I've looked at for eSTAR before, but couldn't get to work, presumably due to the complexity of our code base and the presense of XS and (especially) Fortran. I should probably take another look at it as it loks far more mature than last time I tried to get it to automate our installation.
