Hi there

as I was preparing this edition of the Perl Weekly I suddenly realized that I've hardly heard any news about Perl Conferences and Workshops in 2017.

The only event I found on the YEF page, my usual source, was YAPC Europe August 9 - 11, 2017 Amsterdam, Netherlands.

After some search I've found the French Perl Workshop June 9-10, 2017, Paris, France and The Perl Conference (that used to be YAPC::NA) which will take place June 18-23, 2017, Washington DC, USA.

Are there other Perl Conferences or Workshops being organized? Let us know and we can help to get the word out!

Enjoy your week!

DBIx :: Custom 0.39 release

Adding SQL generation feature, and simple generation of model. Lots of changes. Needs testing.

Better SQL tracing with DBIx::Class

by Curtis 'Ovid' Poe (OVID)

When you write some code and then the other developer shows you the switch to turn on the same thing in the existing solution. Or maybe not exactly.
