This year I made my first contributions to modules on CPAN and to the Perl core. It was pretty easy and painless. This session offers a high level tour of the CPAN and Perl core contribution process as well as a short tutorial for potential contributors on how to get started with patching CPAN modules and making Perl core contributions.
I am a pirate* Perl Hacker and Linux enthusiast. I have a plethora of computer industry experience in roles that include Software Engineering, Web Development, IT Support, System Administration, Release Engineering, and Technical Communications. I’m a co-organizer for the New York Perl Mongers meetup (NY.PM). I also contribute to various CPAN modules and Perl core contributor.
