Perl: Scientific Computing with Math::GSL
Free Geek

Wed. September 10th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

Speaker: Jonathan Leto Topic: Scientific Computing with Math::GSL

This talk will be an introduction to doing scientific computing with Perl and Math::GSL. This module provides access to functions from the GNU Scientific Library via Perl code.

Why would you want to do that? Using the Perl interpreter's easy and fast I/O, string processing, and managed memory reduces programming time while GSL's optimized numerical library (compiled C) gives you access to a variety of mathematical routines to do the heavy lifting.

http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/ http://search.cpan.org/dist/Math-GSL/

You do not need to know Perl or bring a lab coat. You should bring your scientist friends (steal their lab coat?) and it helps if you know how to program in some language (FORTRAN anyone?), or something about math.

As always, social hour at the Lucky Lab after the meeting.

PLUG/Perl: Indexing CPAN
Jax Bar (CLOSED)

Speaker: brian d foy Topic: Indexing CPAN

BackPAN is the historical archive of the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, where most Perl modules live. Going back to 1993, BackPAN has about 100,000 distributions, taking up 12 GB of space. So far, there has not been a comprehensive index of all of these distributions. I'm working on a project to go through each distribution, record as much information as I can, and store that in a way that other people can ask questions. The big goal now is to take any Perl module file you have installed locally and query my index to determine exactly which distribution it came from, when it was released, what other files came with it, and at the time of it's release what its dependency list was.

My talk is a demonstration of what I have so far, which is still in the data collection phase. I have an indexer that knows how to go through distributions and record information, and can do some with pluggable components for each portion of the work. In my talk, I'll demonstrate the current indexer and talk a little bit about the tools and techniques I use. There's plenty of cool Perl things going on, and I'm sure some of the Linux people will have valuable comments about software indexing.

Perl: Hands on Perl 6
Free Geek

We're relegated to the classroom at freegeek this month, so I figure we should make the best of it and have a perl 6 class.

Jerry Gay will be visiting from Seattle. Jerry is a key contributor to parrot/rakudo and will be very helpful in understanding what rakudo can do right now and diagnosing any troubles that come up.

We will have a short walk-through at the beginning and if a projector is available we can use it to increase the tutorial bandwidth.

Bring a laptop if you have one, preferably with parrot (or even pugs) already setup. If you do not have a laptop or if you would be able to bring more than one, please let me know.

I would like this to be very hands-on learning and I imagine we'll probably be working in pairs or small groups as well as spending some time reading documentation and sharing what we've learned.

If you have some experience with Perl 6 or have been playing with it recently, please share your useful links or insights by posting them on the list or the wiki.

http://pdx.pm.org/kwiki/index.cgi?October2008Meeting

If you have no experience with Perl 6, this is where you get it! Bring your friends. There's still more than one way to do it in Perl 6 and I'm looking forward to seeing where people's interests are. Working through some of the perl quizzes or porting other illustrative examples might be fun for some while others might be interested in playing with the classes and objects, or mod_perl6, etc.

As always, social hour at the lucky lab afterwards.

Portland Perl Mongers: Cisco Log Parsing - Good, Bad and Ugly
Free Geek

Wed. November 12th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

Speaker: Gabrielle Roth Topic: 600 Simple Strategies for Sanely Summarizing Cisco Syslogs

Syslog is a handy troubleshooting tool, but only if you actually read what's logged. I wrote a Cisco syslog parser & reporter as part of our network fault-management system. We'll go over:

  • network management basics
  • why we needed this specific tool
  • why I created my own tool from scratch (instead of using an off-the-shelf solution)
  • how I did it & what the results were, and
  • what I'm going to do next.

You don't need to be a Cisco engineer or even know much Perl to get something out of this talk.

PDX.pm: Getting Involved with Rakudo (A Flavor of Perl 6)
Free Geek

This will be a guided "hack session" about getting involved with the development of Rakudo, the first fully-featured Perl 6 implementation, which runs on the Parrot Virtual Machine. There will be a briefing at the beginning of the meeting to bring everyone up to speed and clarify any confusing terminology.

Then we will break into groups and learn-by-hacking on whatever interests the participants. You must be interested in doing something with Perl 6/Rakudo, start now!

The end of the meeting will be a short wrap-up where people voice there experiences working on Rakudo (what needs to be made easier? what rocks? what sucks? what do you want to work on next time?).

PDX.pm normally meets at 7-till-7 (6:53pm) at FreeGeek for roughly an hour or so, then walks a few blocks to the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub for social hour.

[Cancelled] PLUG Advanced Topics: FreeTUIT, Codeless GUI Programming
Jax Bar (CLOSED)

Jax Bar 826 SW 2nd Ave

Speaker: Eric Wilhelm

Codeless GUI Programming A Declarative Syntax Layer for Desktop Graphical User Interfaces

This will be the world premiere of a game-changing advancement in the development of desktop graphical user interfaces (GUIs). FreeTUIT removes the verbosity, tedium, and confusion from GUI development and provides a unified syntax for widget layout and configuration which supports good software design practice without getting in the way of rapid application development.

FreeTUIT is a syntax and runtime for concisely declaring the layout and configuration of GUI widgets (such as forms, toolbars, buttons, and dialogs). The freetuit interpreter drives a unified object layer which is accessible from event callbacks. This takes you from a blank page to a static demo of the layout with zero setup and allows desktop applications to be developed and deployed faster than web applications by simply removing the HTML, CSS, XML, HTTP, Javascript, Database, Network, and User Agent components.

Perl Mongers: chromatic presents, "How a Virtual Machine Works"
Free Geek

Perl 6, Perl 5, Python, Ruby, Lua, JavaScript, Java, C#, and many other languages use virtual machines as their execution environments. Instead of compiling directly to machine code, they rely on the presence of an ideal machine built specifically for the language – porting the language to a new architecture often means only porting that virtual machine.

Does that sound complicated? It's not. Some of the details of very efficient and effective virtual machines are, but the general ideas are simple.

This talk explains the important components of a virtual machine and how they fit together. Examples will come from the world of Perl 5, Parrot, and Perl 6, but the concepts apply to many languages and VMs.

You may never need to hack the guts of your favorite language, but understanding how they work can help you become a better programmer.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the LuckyLab.

Portland Perl Mongers: Perl in the 21st Century -- Eric Wilhelm
Free Geek

I started using Perl just over six years ago, when 5.6.2 was already getting old and 5.8.1 was on the way. By the time I put my first module on the CPAN, over half of the current contributors had already shipped.

I have often read the source of a core module and asked "Why?" only to discover some unknown feature or historical accident. The history lesson continues all the way into the roots of Unix in some cases, but also often leaves me thinking "So?". And now I am quickly approaching my 40th CPAN distribution.

In this talk, I will share my own experiences in developing with Perl and explore the idea of the "Modern" or "Enlightened" Perl. Did I miss the heyday of Perl or are we still making that now? How does today's Perl code look different than it did 5 or 10 years ago? Is there a Perl renaissance coming, and what does it have to do with Perl 6? What modules should you be using for new development? Where is my flying car? Why am I still programming in Perl? And why am I programming at all?

I will try to find answers to some of these questions and invite you to bring questions (or answers!) of your own.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the LuckyLab.

Portland Perl Mongers: Test::Builder 2 -- Michael Schwern
Free Geek

Test::Builder underpins 80% of the tests on CPAN. Its limitations become everyone's limitations. It's done a very good job adapting the last seven years, and testing has become more sophisticated in that time, but age and backwards compatibility holds things back. There are a number of desired features which Test::Builder cannot support, such as end-of-test actions, without radically altering how tests are built.

thus: Test::Builder2.

This will be "something of a talk" followed by some hacking both on Test::Builder2 directly and writing new test modules. It'll give folks an opportunity to work both with Moose (well, Mouse) and git. Pair programming will make life easier, we can pair of experienced folks with inexperienced. Or just huddle together for strength in numbers. I find it easier to pair when each person has their own keyboard, so I'm going to bring along a few spare keyboards and mice. I encourage others to do the same.

Portland Perl Mongers: Moose (A Postmodern Object System) -- hdp
Free Geek

Moose is a postmodern object system for Perl 5.

Moose's recent rise in popularity has led to a surge of declarative class-building and accessor-generating modules, but the real power of Moose comes from its metaclass fundamentals, not from the syntactic sugar of has(). Using Moose as a foundation makes it easier for your code to grow and scale.

I'll cover some of the concepts in Moose that the MOP (Meta-Object Protocol) makes possible, especially roles and type constraints. If we have time, I'll go through a simple Moose extension, focusing on the mechanisms Moose provides to help your code play nicely with others'.

If the first sentence of this description was news to you, you should at least read the SYNOPSIS of Moose, and if you can get through Moose::Manual and Moose::Manual::Concepts, so much the better. I'll expect a lot of questions, but I hope to move past "what is an object" pretty quickly. By the end of the night I hope you'll have a better understanding of the depth of what Moose provides, and why has() is only the tip of the iceberg. I don't expect that everyone will immediately understand every concept provided – my goal is to impress you so much with Moose's awesomeness that you're willing to follow up later on the documentation pointers that I throw out.

Perl Mongers: FreeTUIT - Codeless GUI Programming
Free Geek

You have an idea for some program that you've always said you would write when you got a round tuit. FreeTUIT gives you that first tuit for free. Now you can write a simple cross-platform desktop application without writing any code. Just declare the widget layout and put a shebang line on it and you have an executable application. From there, it's a simple matter of programming to respond to input events.

FreeTUIT is a syntax and Perl runtime for concisely declaring the layout and configuration of GUI widgets (such as forms, toolbars, buttons, and dialogs). The freetuit interpreter drives a unified object layer which is accessible from event callbacks. The system is currently built on top of the wxWidgets toolkit, and is currently in transition to the Qt widget set.

PDX.pm How to Lie Like a Geek [Michael Schwern]
Free Geek

How to Lie Like a Geek speaker: Michael Schwern

Geeks have a special relationship with The Truth. Nothing is more important than correcting a falsehood, no matter how small, and nothing is more odious than not telling The Truth. Unfortunately, in speaking The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth, the meaning is often mangled and the end result is the opposite, a lie.

We’ll examine some ways geeks lie while telling The Truth, to themselves and to others, and hopefully achieve better communications, easier to understand interfaces and maybe some personal enlightenment.

Some examples include: Lies by omission, lies by precision, lies by irrelevancy, lies by design, lies with statistics and that most dangerous of words “should” as in “the user should have realized”.

There will be cake. http://tinyurl.com/mermtx

Silverlight Hackathon - Install Clinic
Stumptown

The Install Clinic has moved to Stumptown

Stuart Celarier is running an Install Clinic at Stumptown starting at 10am. After the clinic, it is a short walk to Souk where we'll be starting the main event at 1pm.

The Install Clinic is an opportunity to drop in, grab a cup of coffee, and Prepare Your System for the Hackathon. Depending on what software you have to install, and the speed of your laptop, it can take some time for the installs to run. You might want to do those installations at home, but if you're like me, these things can sometimes get put off to the last minute. Well, here is your formal last minute to get ready.

It's also an opportunity to schmooze, and if you get set up early you can help others or even try your hand at some impromptu Silverlight hacking.

I am working to get installation media onto CDs or USB drives so we're not all trying to download off the Internets.

As with any install, I'd highly recommend that you ensure that your system backup is current and valid before getting started. 'Nuf said.

Souk downtown (http://local.google.com/local?f=q&hl=en&q=322+NW+6th+Avenue,+Portland,+OR&ie=UTF8&om=1&hq=&hnear=322+NW+6th+Ave,+Portland,+Multnomah,+Oregon+97209&ll=45.525532,-122.676194&spn=0.010809,0.028818&z=16&iwloc=A ). It's super close to all kinds of Bus/Max stops, and there's a easy Smart Park close. Since it's Sunday, I expect there will even be street parking options.

Souk's direction page: http://www.soukllc.com/directions.html Public Transportation souk is located on the Max Green Line/Yellow Line (China Town Stop) and the bus route. The nearby streetcar also accesses souk a few blocks away. Consult www.trimet.org for more information. By Bike Bike lockers are within a couple blocks, and U bike racks are available on souk's block. By Car Zipcar's closest spot is at Flanders and 4th. The closest garage is on Everett at 5 th one block away. Smartpark has garages within a few blocks at Naito and NW Davis and at Station Place (at the westside foot of the Broadway Bridge). Additionally, there are several outdoor lots within a few blocks of souk.

What do I need? A laptop capable of running Dev Studio/Silverlight: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd823311.aspx

What can I do to help? Burn some CD/DVDs. We need SL3 Tools + Blend/Dev Express, SL 4 Tools and Blend/Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2. Bring a (labelled) extension cord/power strip Bring a projector (please let us know if you can do this)

Portland Perl Mongers -- XML with Xtra X
Free Geek

How to learn to parse huge XML documents by doing it wrong for 5 years speaker: Tyler Riddle

When XML documents can't fit into memory the vast majority of solutions available on CPAN are no longer available to you; when the XML documents are so large they take up to 16 hours to process with the standard tools for handling large documents your hands are tied even more. Tyler will cover his learning experiences creating the Parse::MediaWikiDump and MediaWiki::DumpFile modules which are made to handle the 24 gigabyte English Wikipedia dump files in a reasonable time frame.

1) Real world benchmarks of C and perl libraries used to process huge

XML documents. 

2) The dirty little secret about XS and what it means for you in this

context. 

3) The evolution of the implementation of a nice interface around event

oriented (SAX style) XML parsing. 

4) Why XML::LibXML::Reader and XML::CompactTree are your friends and

how to tame them.

Portland Perl Mongers -- Fennec
Free Geek

speaker: Chad 'Exodist' Granum

Chad will demonstrate what he has so far, and request feedback.

From the fennec docs: Fennec - Framework upon which inter-compatible testing solutions can be built.

Fennec provides a solid base that is highly extendable. It allows for the writing of custom nestable workflows (like RSPEC), Custom Asserts (like Test::Exception), Custom output handlers (Alternatives to TAP), Custom file types, and custom result passing (collectors). In Fennec all test files are objects. Fennec also solves the forking problem, that's it, forking just plain works.

This framework is what has come from a discussion around modern testing in Perl. It is an attempt to address, or make addressable the desires and needs expressed therein. It is also an attempt to make glue for all future solutions to current and future problems.

  • C'Dent - A portable module programming language
  • Stardoc - An Acmeist documentation system
  • TestML - An Acmeist unit test language

Imagine writing a Perl module, and then uploading it to RubyGems and PyPi and a dozen other language repositories as a native module for that language. C'Dent compiles modules Perl, Python, Ruby and JavaScript modules to many languages. Stardoc reformats POD to many other formats. TestML lets you write one set of tests that all the compiled modules must pass before shipping.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Perl 5 & 6 Gems
Roots Organic Brewing [Out of business. *Sigh*]

Perl 5 & 6: What you've missed in the last $n years by Eric Wilhelm and Paul Fenwick

http://www.scratchcomputing.com http://www.perltraining.com.au

We are honored to have local Perl expert and OSCON presenter Eric Wilhelm and visiting OSCON keynote presenter Paul Fenwick talk about gems you may have been missing in Perl 5 and 6.

Eric will present an overview of the Perl 6 project, a snapshot of recent development, how to install Rakudo Perl 6, and samples of what you can do with Rakudo Perl 6 now.

Paul writes: Awesome things have been happening in Perl recently; so many that even if you've been paying close attention, you may have missed a few. In this talk we'll examine some of the coolest recent technologies for Perl programmers, including:

  • Overhauling Perl's Object Oriented framework with Moose.

  • Making everything a first-class object with autobox.

  • Slashing your error handling code with autodie.

  • Building fast, readable and reusable regular expressions with Perl 5.10.

  • Bundling and building stand-alone applications using PAR, the Perl Archiver.

  • Astonishingly good profiling with Devel::NYTProf.

  • Playing MineSweeper automatically with App::SweeperBot.

Panel: Selena Deckelmann, Igal Koshevoy, Jeff Lavallee, David Wheeler

This will be a panel discussion about the ups, downs, ins, and outs of relational, row, key-value, and hierarchical data stores (simplistic buzzwordiness: SQL vs NOSQL aka ACID CRUD.)

The panel will discuss parallelism, scale, data integrity, normalization, business logic, ORMs, and performance. Some of the following might be addressed:

  • why do you want a relational DB?
  • why do you not want a relational DB?
  • Membase, MongoDB, Redis, Cassandra
  • Tokyo Tyrant, CouchDB, old school K/V (zodb, bdb)
  • distinctions between "relational" and "row store"
  • how filesystem settings affect the database
  • how important is your data?
  • common errors in SQL schemas or usage
  • is count(*) supposed to be fast?
  • efficiency vs speed vs parallel cleverness
  • sharding
  • what is "scale" and do you need it?
  • massively denormalized, or massively normalized?
  • ORMs, materialized views, indexes, and the query planner
  • typical performance with small/large, simple/complex data sets

Portland Perl Mongers -- Modern Perl + Test::Builder 2
Free Geek

speakers: chromatic and Michael Schwern

This meeting will be two shorter presentations back-to-back. The Modern Perl talk is broadly targetted at beginners and everyday general usage concepts while the Test::Builder 2 talk will delve much deeper into particular details of Perl's testing system.

chromatic on Modern Perl Perl masters talk about strange subjects such as whipupitude, manipulexity, context, lexicals, and linguistic principles. It may seem that you must be a wizard to apply these notions to your code and dexterously wield Perl's essential strengths. In truth, these ideas and idioms are deceptively simple: you use them every day when you read or write plain English. Demystifying the linguistic concepts in Perl opens up the doors of Perl mastery. Come learn the philosophy behind Perl's design in order to understand Perl and how to use its unique isms to improve your code.

Schwern on Test::Builder2 Test::Builder is what most Test modules are written with these days. It lets them quietly coordinate with each other and frees the authors from having to worry about the details. It was written in 2001 and in that decade there's been an explosion of testing modules. A decade later, Test::Builder is starting to show its age and limitations. Its assumptions and biases are restraining the Perl testing community. Perl has moved on, too. When Test::Builder was written, testing was still a "new" thing. Now it's a given. We have a real object system now and a sophisticated community to take advantage. Enter Test::Builder2. A total rewrite of Test::Builder to remove its biases and let test authors do whatever they can dream up while still being the solid iron core of Perl testing and remaining compatible with Test::Builder. It takes advantage of things like Mouse (that's a small Moose), method wrappers and roles. Counter-intuitively, it does less than Test::Builder does while providing more opportunities. Schwern has a grant for Test::Builder2 from the Perl Foundation and if he doesn't release something by October they'll break his legs. So he's hoping to generate some contributors by showing off the design and code!

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Pacific Northwest Parrot Developers Gathering/Hackathon
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Parrot developers have reserved a room for the above times to meet face-to-face to talk about and hack on Parrot Virtual Machine!

The first few hours of the meeting will concentrate on people already involved in Parrot, to talk about which goals Parrot wants to achieve and what people will focus on in the future. Some members of the Board of Directors of Parrot Foundation will be present, and hopefully any local developers that are already involved with Parrot in some way.

The latter half of the time slot will be focused towards new users and people interested in learning more about Parrot. Some Parrot developers will hack on their Parrot-related projects, while others will work with those who are new to Parrot, to orient them and discuss what roles they can play in the Parrot community and/or what things need hacking on.

Hacking and schmoozing will probably continue after 5pm, but that is when our reserved space ends.

Portland Perl Mongers -- "Now on 2nd Thursdays" Social
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Note the new date and (temporary) location change. This is a trial run at changing to 2nd Thursdays and a break from Free Geek while we figure out the keys/space issues.

We'll be discussing all things Perl and generally socializing in or near some tasty beverages. If you are new, look for the pdx.pm t-shirts[1].

Feel free to bring a laptop if you have some code or Perl questions to share or work on. (Or if you have no laptop, just bring the code/url.)

The other meeting will be next Wednesday (Sept 14th), also at the Lucky Lab. You get one vote for each time you show up (vote for both days or one twice.)

Rumor has it that the classroom at Free Geek is being redone into rows of desks with a whiteboard and projector -- which makes 2nd Wednesdays more viable, though the meeting room might still be a better space for us.

[1] My shirt is often purple. There was talk on irc.perl.org/#pdx.pm of getting a '$_' bat-signal to shine on the ceiling, but no volunteer yet.

This event overlaps with PDX Hackathon! Some type of tech user group jousting may occur.

Portland Perl Mongers -- "Last of the 2nd Wednesdays" Social
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Note the (temporary) location change. This is possibly the last of the meetings on 2nd Wednesdays and a break from Free Geek while we figure out the keys/space issues.

We'll be discussing all things Perl and generally socializing in or near some tasty beverages. If you are new, look for the pdx.pm t-shirts[1].

Feel free to bring a laptop if you have some code or Perl questions to share or work on. (Or if you have no laptop, just bring the code/url.) I would also like to hear your ideas and proposals for future meeting topics and presentations.

The other meeting was last Thursday (Sept 8th), also at the Lucky Lab, where we began voting on whether to move the meeting to 2nd Thursdays. You get one vote for each time you show up (vote for both days or one twice.)

Rumor has it that the classroom at Free Geek is being redone into rows of desks with a whiteboard and projector -- which makes 2nd Wednesdays more viable, though the meeting room might still be a better space for us.

Portland Perl Mongers -- Shebangml: a markup language with bacon
Free Geek

speaker: Eric Wilhelm

Shebangml is a markup language which saves programmers from gouging their eyes out on pointy angle brackets.

Most pointy ML data (SGML/XML/XHTML/HTML) can be translated to and from this human-readable, bacony syntax. This allows modern programmers to interface with legacy software such as WWW browsers and other relics like "Enterprise Java Software". But the true power of shebangml lies in the '#!' (hash-bang/shebang) and its programmable templating features. Unlike most "don't make me write HTML" generators and markup replacements, hbml preserves the good parts of the quoting constructs and attributes+content nature of XML. This makes it not only a fine replacement for obsolete markup languages, but also an ideal foundation for new dialects and applications. The pluggable syntax and interpreter allow you to define static or dynamically loadable constructs, which allows your application to balance convenience features with security issues using clear separations.

This presentation will cover the Shebangml syntax, the basics of the parser/interpreter module, the extensions API, and two real-world applications (the FreeTUIT declarative GUI toolkit and the presentation generator Text::Slidez.)

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Portland Perl Mongers – DCI: A new way to OOP.
Free Geek

speaker: Chad 'Exodist' Granum

The DCI concept was created by Trygve Reenskaug, (inventor of MVC) and James Coplien.

DCI Stands for Data, Context, Interactions. It was created to solve the problem of unpredictable emergent behavior in networks of interacting objects. This problem shows itself in complex OOP projects, most commonly in projects with deep polymorphism. This is a problem that Procedural/Imperative Programming does not have.

DCI does not replace OOP, instead it augments it with lessons learned from looking back at Procedural Programming. It defines a way to encapsulate use cases into a single place. This provides an advantage to the programmer by reducing the number of interactions that need to be tracked. Another advantage is the reduction of side-effects between contexts.

Another way to look at it is that a DCI implementation is much more maintainable as a project matures. Changes to requirements and additional features cause clean OOP project to degrade into spaghetti. DCI on the other hand maintains code clarity under changing requirements.

You will Learn:

  • How to think in DCI
  • How the DCI cpan package helps you write DCI
  • That you may already write things in a form of DCI
  • How a DCI implementation compares to an OOP implementation (in a generic task)

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Portland Perl Mongers – Pegex: Perl 6 Grammar Everywhere.
Free Geek

speaker: Ingy döt Net - http://ingy.net/

Acmeism (http://acmeism.org) is the ability to think about and express one's creative ideas, beyond language borders. In programming, this means creating things that benefit multiple languages and communities. Perl is effectively one great community with 2 great languages (Perl 5 and Perl 6). Acmeism is essential to mongers, but kindly extends to pythonistas, brigadiers and nodelings as well.

Pegex is an Acmeist parsing language. Think of it as Perl 6 Rules and Regexp::Grammars for all programmers. Write One Grammar, Parse Everywhere. This makes Pegex the quintessential tool in the Acmeist's belt. Pegex.pm is fully functional in Perl 5, and working it's way across the Acmeist landscape. Come see Ingy döt Net (an inventor of YAML and the father of Acmeism) talk about Pegex and the exciting future of Acmeism.

Westside Proggers - VoteFair ranking: Math-based voting power for the 99%
Tektronix Bldg 38

Just-released open-source software that implements VoteFair ranking is now available to help us reach higher levels of voting fairness. You do voting when you click on Google search results, and you use voting results when you view the star rating of an Amazon product. Now learn how voting really works, how it is usually miscalculated -- intentionally in the case of elections -- and how it can be done to fully extract the wisdom in a group. Learn the math behind the puppet strings that connect politicians to the biggest campaign contributors. (Partial spoiler: The biggest unfairness is hidden in primary elections.) Also learn the math that eventually will cut those puppet strings. Along the way you will learn that there are different kinds of popularity.

Presenter: Richard Fobes, author of The Creative Problem Solver's Toolbox and Ending The Hidden Unfairness In U.S. Elections, developer of the Dashrep programming language and the software negotiation tool at www.NegotiationTool.com.

This event is a meeting of the Westside Proggers, a group of language-agnostic programmers who like to talk about pioneering new frontiers in software.

Please RSVP (and reserve slices of free pizza) at the Westside Proggers forum on Google.

Portland Perl Mongers – Fearless Code Cleanup
Free Geek

speaker: Chad 'Exodist' Granum

Refactoring is something many developers approach with a great deal of fear. Sometimes you may need to refactor code that you do not understand. Sometimes there are no unit tests. Sometimes things can be scary.

Chad will be showing techniques for cleaning/refactoring code that will help avoid errors, and make things less scary. Ideally people will bring small/medium code samples or modules as examples. If nobody brings anything we may pull something off of cpan.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

PLUG: OData Open Data and Interoperability
Portland State University FAB, Room 86-09

Open Data and Interoperability by Arlo Belshee

Lots of us want to expose our data via RESTful web APIs. We also want to consume data exposed via such APIs. REST + Json works well for this. However, we'd also like to mash up multiple data sources and build higher level tools. For example, it would be nice to create Business Intelligence (BI) tools that can point to any API and start charting the data, or create JavaScript control libraries that can be bound directly to data sources.

Unfortunately, that isn't possible with just REST + Json.

The problem is that each service is custom. No two services follow exactly the same rules. Sure, everything exposes sets of resources. But how do you get from a resource to its related resources? How do you ask the server to tell you about related resources? What, exactly should the server do when it gets a PATCH verb? Each server interprets these differently, which prevents making general tools.

I'm going to talk about the OData protocol. This is an open standard that defines uniform semantics and modeling for RESTful web services. I'll show how this allows general tools to be built, and data from multiple sources to be combined together in interesting ways - without requiring custom code for each server. I'll also show how this enables people working in different languages. A single library can be written for each language which can then support all OData-compliant RESTful web services.

Most of the examples will be with open source frameworks and tools, but I'll also show ways that you can use OData to break out data that is trapped in closed-source systems and expose it to the open source ecosystem.

Agenda:

7:00 - 7:30 Business We will discuss the status of our ongoing projects including PLUG's monthly Advanced Topics meetings, PLUG's monthly hands on clinics etc.

Portland Perl Mongers – Modern Web Frameworks Panel
Free Geek

This informal panel / round-table discussion will review and demonstrate what has changed over the last few years since Plack has become the leading deployment/glue technology for Perl web applications.

While Plack/PSGI is a vastly more flexible, maintainable, deployable, and scalable model than CGI, in many ways it is a back-to-basics simplification of the ways in which code and servers interact. It has also led to new web frameworks which allow you to forget about all of those fundamental details. We'll try to look at the overall picture, plus specific examples and discuss use cases and migration experiences.

Panel members:

  • Ben: Dancer demo
  • Joshua: a second person to answer Dancer questions
  • Clay: CGI to Plack conversion
  • Eric: server options for testing and deployment

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Portland Perl Mongers – Programming in the Future + Intro to Dist::Zilla
Free Geek

speakers: Eric Wilhelm + Jonathan "Duke" Leto

(Rumored cameo / lightning talk by Florian "rafl" Ragwitz.)

Programming in the Future - a preview of the upcoming OSCON presentation covering the last and next 25 years of programming technology using Perl as our time machine. We'll look at the evolution of tools, syntax, modules, and standard practices, the gooey innards, and some "hot new things" which are still being discovered again.

Introduction to Dist::Zilla for Newbies - eliminates your excuses for not learning more about Dist::Zilla and using it on a regular basis. By the end of this talk, you will know how and why to use dzil as your favorite Perl package developer tool, and you might even need to publish more code on the CPAN just to have an excuse to use it more.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Perl Mongers -- h2xs is da bomb + dzil Pod::Weaver
Free Geek

speaker: Ian Dees + Joshua Keroes

Ian...

➜ will cover what it's like for n00bs learning how to create a new Perl module, including:

  • Where rookies look for "Getting Started" information
  • Which tools we can readily find for the job
  • What kinds of questions we have about namespaces

What Ian would like to do to help:

  • Listen to your answers
  • Format them into some kind of guide (or supplement an existing one)
  • Hand it to a Perl expert to post in the right place
  • Commit to checking in a couple of times a year to keep the information current

You will be vastly enlightened, or horrified.

Joshua...

➜ will continue down the Dist::Zilla path of Automated Enlightenment and speak on Pod::Weaver.

In July, Duke Leto gave Portland an introduction to Dist::Zilla, demonstrating how it can help write, package, test, and release your modules; automating the boring stuff like figuring out prerequisites, automatically inserting and updating $VERSION's, getting rid of all those meta files and generating them automatically; all good ways to focus on the important stuff: the code.

This month, Joshua will show how Pod::Weaver can help automate the boring parts of writing documentation so you can avoid getting bogged down by boilerplate and focus on the important stuff there: the docs.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Free Geek

speaker: Jonathan "Duke" Leto

So, there's this dude named Travis who lives in a cloud and has nothing better to do on a Thursday night than download your latest commit, run your tests, and ridicule you on the twitternets when you broke the build... or something like that. But even if you don't need your pocket to jiggle on the way to fried pies, you should have some sort of automated continuous integration setup testing your code to keep you and your commits working smoothly. Jonathan will talk about Travis CI, demonstrate setting-up Travis for a public github project, and cover some of Jitterbug.

Portland Perl Mongers – Prime Number Generation in Perl
Free Geek

speaker: Dana Jacobsen

Dana will give a brief introduction to primes, primality testing, and sieves, then show examples in Perl. Dana is the author of the Math::Prime::Util module on CPAN. Outline:

  • Primes
  • Applications
  • Primality testing in Perl
  • Sieves
  • 15 sieve implementations in Perl including a new string-based sieve
  • 6 CPAN modules
  • Performance and memory use
  • Prime Counting

Sadly a lot of the web examples of Perl sieves are quite bad, often 3-6x slower than Perl can do. We can do better! There are also a number of CPAN modules related to primes, which will briefly be covered.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Perl Mongers – Sane Database Change Management with Sqitch
Free Geek

speaker: David Wheeler

SQL change management is hard. Most “migration”-style implementations require opaque naming conventions, prefer DSLs that cover a fraction of SQL, and require duplication of code for simple changes to existing functions. Such does not have to be. And now it’s not

Introducing Sqitch, simple SQL change management that doesn’t suck. Sqitch doesn’t care what programming language your app is written in. It has no opinions as to what database to use or what its schema should look like. And it doesn’t require sequentially-named migration scripts or the use of any DSL other than SQL. Sqitch lets you to write SQL migration scripts that target your database, and provides a simple, unintrusive interface for specifying dependencies, so that it can run things in the proper order.

So come to this talk to learn all about Sqitch: How it works, where to get it, and how to get the most out of managing database deployments.

David Wheeler is Senior Data Architect at iovation and an associate at PGExperts. He is responsible, among other things, for PGXN, pgTAP, DesignScene, and way too many CPAN modules. He lives in Portland unless he’s traveling with his family.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Perl Mongers – Simple Questions Should Have Simple Answers + pdx.pm governance
Free Geek

speaker: MichaelSchwern

If a developer ever says “it’s really simple”, run and do not look back.

Developers often throw around terms like “easy” and “obvious” but what do they tell them about what to do to make something “easier” and “more obvious”? What does it tell them about whether somebody else will find something “easy” and “obvious”? Not a lot.

Giving simple questions simple answers tells how to take action to make things easier and more obvious to the casual user. Embracing the task of providng simple answers rejects the fallacy that complex implementations mean complex answers. It creates a new relationship of respect between the user and the developer; a good user can ask a simple question illuminating what people want to do, and a good developer fulfills the user’s desire for a simple answer. What does it mean to be simple?

  • How do you find it?
  • What are its benefits?
  • What happens when you don’t seek simplicity?

pdx.pm governance

Before the presentation, we'll have a short discussion about the future of the monthly group meetings as Eric Wilhelm is no longer able to be the sole organizer.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Perl Mongers - ØMQ Sockets and Perl
Free Geek

ØMQ Sockets in Perl

Speaker: Anthony Johnson

Part message queue, part socket implementation sugar, ØMQ can be used to simplify socket communication and to scale out applications, and you don't even have to worry about the awful parts of socket communication. But more aptly and straight from the horse's mouth:

ØMQ (also seen as ZeroMQ, 0MQ, zmq) looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency framework. It gives you sockets that carry atomic messages across various transports like in-process, inter-process, TCP, and multicast. You can connect sockets N-to-N with patterns like fanout, pub-sub, task distribution, and request-reply. It's fast enough to be the fabric for clustered products. Its asynchronous I/O model gives you scalable multicore applications, built as asynchronous message-processing tasks. It has a score of language APIs and runs on most operating systems. ØMQ is from iMatix and is LGPLv3 open source.

Find out what ØMQ is, where to use it, and learn about common patterns, pitfalls, and how it can be used for building anti-RESTful APIs. Anthony will elaborate on what it took to build a scaled out application and API using Python, Perl, and ØMQ.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Perl Mongers - Module Interface/API design
Free Geek

Module Interface/API design

Speaker: Chad 'Exodist' Granum

Most developers create a module when they want to solve a problem. Most focus goes into the inner-workings of the module. Interface often takes a backseat and is addressed as an afterthought. This approach to interface design leads to horrible headaches.

For Part 1 Chad will be introducing several module interface paradigms. This includes a brief review of OO, as well as simple exporters and declarative builders. Examples from common CPAN modules will be given.

For Part 2 chad will take attendees through an exercise in designing an API for an example module that is actually useful (and not simply a toy for the example). We will weigh the pros and cons of different interface possibilities as well as show a complete implementation.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Rentrak Hackathon
Rentrak - Downtown

The Rentrak Hackathon is a gathering of laptops and laughter. Classically, we all sit in a square and type words onto a keyboard that then get turned into a "computerized program". It's a good chance to work on your personal projects, learn what your peers are up to (computer-wise), figure out what the best programming language is, and/or say the words "I don't have anything to work on" or "I forgot my laptop". This event is very informal, and there is no specific project we'll be focusing our efforts on.

Food and refreshments are served. RSVPing to ssw@rentrakmail.com is appreciated, but not required.

Come check out Rentrak's new downtown office. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Portland Perl Mongers - Deploying Perl Applications with Carton
Free Geek

Deploying Perl Applications with Carton

Speaker: Ian Burrell

CPAN has lots of useful Perl modules and it makes it easy to install them. But it has the problem of how you specify the modules your application needs to install, how you replicate the install on different machines, and how you keep applications and system packages separate.

Carton is built on top of Cpanminus and local::lib. Cpanminus is a simple command-line tool for installing CPAN modules. local::lib helps install modules into an application directory. It uses a new file format, Cpanfile, to define the module deepencies, including version specification. It records the installed versions so the specific sets of modules can be recreated on other machines and is checked into version control.

We use Carton to install modules for our large Perl applications. It allows developers to install modules without installing system administrators. Since installing modules can be slow, we implemented caching on top of Carton. We deploy applications with Capistrano and have integrated Carton into our build and deployment process.

As always, meet us at the Lucky Lab for some beer and good company following the meeting.

Portland Perl Mongers - Highly Functional Programming
Free Geek

Highly Functional Programming

Speaker: Eric Wilhelm

Functional programming is very pure and elegant when nothing can change, and the computer can reason about your code for you -- in theory. Reality is messier, but Perl and other high-level languages support pure functions as a subset of the procedural and OO paradigms, so why don't we use them more? Functional techniques are good problem solving tools, useful for event-driven programs, and can be mixed into traditional OO and procedural codebases for better code reuse and testability.

In this talk, we'll look at some benefits of purely functional programming from a pragmatic and procedural viewpoint. There will be absolutely no mention of monads because we will just ride our lambdas through the mud and get it done. We'll see how good programming practices tend to suggest stateless and functional approaches. We'll examine techniques for refactoring which separate functions from state changes and allow you to better test and reason about your code. Finally, we'll look at language interpreters and discuss how technology might be able to help get even more benefits out of highly functional programming approaches.

This is a preview of an upcoming OSCON talk.

As always, meet us at the Lucky Lab for some beer and good company following the meeting.

Rentrak Hackathon
Rentrak - Downtown

The Rentrak Hackathon is a gathering of laptops and laughter. Classically, we all sit in a square and type words onto a keyboard that then get turned into a "computerized program". It's a good chance to work on your personal projects, learn what your peers are up to (computer-wise), figure out what the best programming language is, and/or say the words "I don't have anything to work on" or "I forgot my laptop". This event is very informal, and there is no specific project we'll be focusing our efforts on.

Food and refreshments are served. RSVPing to ssw@rentrakmail.com is appreciated, but not required.

Come check out Rentrak's new downtown office. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Portland Perl Mongers - Perl in the PEARL edition
PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

NOTE: Change of Venue!

We're going to change things up this month and will be hosting our first meeting of the year downtown. Join us at the Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) office, located at 12th and NW Davis.


Dana Jacobsen will give a talk on his number theory module. This is an early version of the talk for FOSDEM.

This talk describes the history, design, and implementation details of a number theory module for Perl. With implementations for most functions in C, C+GMP, and Perl this offers speed on most platforms as well as portability. Comparisons will be made with tools such as Pari/GP, SymPy, SAGE, Primo, OpenPFGW, and others.

Full synopsis here

We'll migrate to Life of Riley or another nearby venue after the meeting for drinks and food.

Portland Perl Mongers - Documenting Perl and Alternatives to POD
PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

Join us at the Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) office, located at 12th and NW Davis.

Stefan and Anthony will be discussing some new alternatives to POD that they've both been working on. Stefan has been working on parsing Markdown formatted documentation out of Perl source. Anthony has been working on an extension to the Sphinx documentation engine to support writing rST formatted documentation in Perl source. Both attempts are in their infancy, so be sure to give feedback and suggestions.

If anyone else would like to join in, or if someone wants to defend lowly ol’ POD, you’re welcome to join in as well.

Portland Perl Mongers - Perl in the OpenBSD base system
Free Geek

Join us back at Freegeek this month for a talk by Andrew on Perl in OpenBSD.

Andrew Fresh will be previewing his hopeful YAPC::NA talk on Perl in the OpenBSD base system.

Perl 5.003 was imported as part of the OpenBSD base system in 1996 by Jason Downs (downsj@) and has been used heavily ever since. Quite a few system utilites are written in perl, one of the largest being Marc Espie's (espie@) rewrite of the package management tools and his amazing dpb (distributed package build) tool. Andrew is the current maintainer for perl in OpenBSD and wants to share what's going on.

Full synopsis

Join us afterwards at the SE Lucky Lab for drinks and more conversation.

Portland Perl Mongers - Failure: Why it happens & How to benefit from it
Free Geek

Join us back at Freegeek this month for a talk by VM Brasseur on project failure.

Projects fail in droves. Up to 90% of new businesses fail within 10 years. Screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place.

Just because it happens doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to prevent it or—at the very least—to minimize the damage when it does. As a matter of fact, embracing failure can be one of the best things you do for your project. Failure is a vital part of evolution. By learning to love failure we learn how to take the next step forward. Ignoring or punishing failure leads to stagnation and wasted potential.

Full synopsis

Join us afterwards at the SE Lucky Lab for drinks and more conversation.
