North West Perl Hackathon

December 14, 2009 § Leave a comment

The hackathon took place over the weekend, and for me it was great fun! It’s my first time attending a Perl Mongers event (even though I’ve been meaning too for at least half a year, bah) and was really nice to put some faces to the names I see on IRC. For the hackathon, we were working on the IronMan project – 3 different parts in fact

The three projects were converting our CSV archives into database format, adding support for viewing the archives in the Catalyst application, and refactoring Perlanet so we can use it to aggregate feeds for the site itself. I was working on the later project. It was a fairly straightforward task, just refactoring someone elses work into something easier to subclass. It took about 6 hours to do, and I’m fairly happy with the result. The best bit is, it’s already been merged!

So, a sucess for me I think, and I look forward to seeing the results of everyone else. If you’re in the north-west, be sure to sign up to the mailing list, I believe there’s a curry being planned for mid January in Preston – and no one can say no to curry and beer, right?
