Formal deprecation of GraphViz V 2.19 - Use GraphViz2

With the help of a pull request from Patrice Clement (as part of the CPAN Request Challenge) I've released GraphViz V 2.19. This does not involve any code or documentation changes, since the module's docs already warned users that it was deprecated. Rather, it adds the x-deprecated flag to META.json and META.yml. I added .gitignore to MANIFEST.SKIP.

What should Rakudo-js aim for first?

I'm considering applying for a TPF grant to allow me to fully focus on working on getting Rakudo to target JS. To focus the grant application (and pin down the deliverables) I need to choose a use case for rakudo-js to focus on. Possible ones (ideas for new ones are appreciated).

  • running a single page app in a browser (using react.js/jquery or just vanilla js).
  • running on top of node.js
  • running on top of react.native on a mobile phone
  • exploring Perl 6 in your browser (having a awesome REPL, being able to execute snippets etc.)

Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards

We're looking for nominations for the 2015 White Camel Awards that recognize significant non-technical achievement in Perl and its community. Each year we recognize work in the broad categories of community, advocacy, and user groups. These people keep the Perl community going and deserve to be recognized!

White Camel in Your Face
To nominate someone, you can send me a name and your reasoning through any means you like. Reply here, post on Twitter (note @briandfoy_perl or use the #whitecamelaward tag so I'll find it), send me email, hire landscapers to write out the names in tulips then take an aerial photo you post to instagram, or something more creative. Note, however, that the method of nomination does not factor into our decision!

is firewall of server blocking my script ... ?!

hello and this is one of my first scripts, which are not executable at present. one year ago, there was no problem to use this script as shell-script (not yet in perl) like here : #!/bin/bash awk '{ for (i = 1; i <= NF; i++) if ($i ~ /^SRC=/) print substr($i, 5) }' /var/log/syslog | sort -u | while read ip; do printf ' INVALID STATE ' && printf ' === %s ===\n' "$ip" whois "$ip" >> log-002.txt; done I have used this script to filter syslog output after connections who are knocking on the phone-lines ... Now this script seems always to be stopped by the firewall of my provider. One year ago or 6 months ago this script was not stopped by third person (or program). the output of today is the same like as one week ago: INVALID STATE === fe80:0000:0000:0000:0a95:2aff:fe7a:bca7 === Is this the firewall of the provider stopping my script ?!

Another awesome Sydney-PM

Thanks to the 14 people who attended and our three speakers, John, Peter and Mandy. Hopefully their slide decks will be available shortly. In the "Good news everyone!" category, there are a couple of Perl shops in Sydney who are hiring right now (afaik, local not remote workers). People should feel free to ask after them via the Sydney.PM on Facebook page or the Email list By popular demand, we will be convening again in December - speakers and a venue are all up for grabs. Use the above two links to volunteer.
