Four New Perl Books Underway

| 3 Comments

Good news!

We at Onyx Neon have decided to follow up to our successful Modern Perl: the Book with (at least) four more Perl books in the next year.

Chris Nehren is writing a guide to the modern CPAN based on Task::Kensho. These are the modules every practical Perl programmer should know.

Jess Robinson has agreed to write the definitive guide to DBIx::Class.

Kartik Thakore and the other SDL Perl hackers have a guide to multimedia programming and game development with Perl underway. We will have part of this book available for your perusal at YAPC::NA 2011.

I just started a Github repository for the Little Plack Book, an explanation of Plack and its ecosystem.

As is our habit, we're writing and editing these books in public. You're welcome to read along as we produce them, suggest new areas, fix bugs, and spread the word. We'll continue our very liberal redistribution policy as well when we reach the printed page.

(Moose fans do not despair! Lock some combination of Stevan Little, Chris Prather, Dave Rolsky, and myself in a room for an hour with the appropriate libations and we'll see what we can do.)

I smell a most excellent YAPC::NA BOF/Hackathon! (write-a-thon?)

Having decanted my notes from my Moleskine to https://github.com/fleetfootmike/LoopMoose I have made a start... if anyone else wants to contribute/critique/whatever, they'll be more than welcome
