Perl Vogue

I’m at YAPC::EU in Pisa, so I’m too busy having fun to write a long blog post about my new project – Perl Vogue. But I thought you might be interested in the lightning talk that I used to announce it yesterday.

More detail when I get back from Italy in ten days.

Also published on Medium.

  1. Nice idea. CPAN recommendation services are very much needed. I hope it won’t become yet another blog or “magazine” but a service showing current trends/recommendations.

  2. A nice one. Although I’d use a sans-serif typeface for the magazine title, something lighter.
    One thing that bothers me is whether this “fashion” thing is a kind of herd instinct, as it used to be in a real fashion. I like the fresh breeze of Perl modules, but I certainly will use good old modules as long as they are suitable for my tasks.
