  201.        <![CDATA[<p><i>As time moves on the Voyage gradually moves forward.</i></p>
  202.  
  203. <p>In the proposal I sent, I already knew that I would not be able to dedicate any time until the last week of September. So, what did happen until now:</p>
  204.  
  205. <h1>The Apache &amp; mod_perl nightmare</h1>
  206.  
  207. <p><span class="caps">ACT</span>ually, let me take you back december 2013. After I visited the London Perl Workshop, I went to the French hackathon Patch -p1 in Paris to see if I could do some useful things on <span class="caps">ACT.</span> I wanted a good looking web-site for the Dutch Perl Workshop! The only thing I had at time was a jurassic Apple PowerBook G3 500Mhz <span class="caps">FW.</span> I still love that baby. During that specific hackathon my slow machine was not performing well and I had to go back home without having much achieved, technically.</p>
  208.  
  209. <p>Back home I bought a book that most would start screaming about "Practical mod_perl". In there is a recipe to get it all up and running... If only. As family we went to a resort in Belgium between Christmas and New-Year and I tried to be a nice family man. Most of the time I was trying to set-up my machine so it would run Apache 1.x with mod_perl. And it still didn't work out.</p>
  210.  
  211. <p>The best solution was actually the most simple one, a dead clean install of the original MacOS 10.4! Which includes a running Apache 1.x and mod_perl pre installed... Had I only known before.</p>
  212.  
  213. <p>Why this long story? For it is one of the many stories you will hear from anybody that wanted to install Act on their own system. It is a nightmare. Luckily there were some people that had succeeded before:</p>
  214.  
  215. <ul>
  216. <li>Detlev sent his notes on how tried to set up his development virtual machine for the <span class="caps">NLPW </span>and I never got the chance to work those out for one simple reason: I did not had a laptop robust enough to run virtualisation. But that has changed.</li>
  217. <li>Alex Mundata had worked out a way to install a working setup inside a Vagrant box. I looked at it and tried it - but failed a few times, as there were some unclear things in his setup</li>
  218. </ul>
  219.  
  220. <h1>The green pastures of 'Act-out-of-the-box'</h1>
  221.  
  222. So, I took all that info and started to work on a super easy way for any Act developer to start hacking:<br />
  223. <ol>
  224. <li>Download Vagrant</li>
  225. <li>Download the <i>'Act-out-of-the-box'</i> vagrant image</li>
  226. <li>vagrant up</li>
  227. <li>Choose your install type</li>
  228. <li>Welcome to Act</li>
  229. </ol>
  230. So, what is happening there, what install types...?
  231.  
  232. <p>As it seems there are different ways people like to work on Act. Some of them just want a test machine so they can play locally with the design and interaction. For them there will be a pre-setup environment that will give them only what they need. Others want to do some stuff in the core of Act, those will get another environment.</p>
  233.  
  234. <p>During that last install step, it does one other important thing, it does clone a repository from GitHub: the <b>stable</b> production version, the <span class="caps">HOT </span><b>Act Voyager</b> version or a <b><span class="caps">PSGI</span></b> version.</p>
  235.  
  236. <p>The <a href="https://github.com/THEMA-MEDIA/Act-out-of-the-box">'Act-out-of-the-box'</a> comes pre-installed with:</p>
  237.  
  238. <ul>
  239. <li>Apache 1.2.42</li>
  240. <li>mod_perl 1.31</li>
  241. <li>postfix</li>
  242. <li>PostgreSQL</li>
  243. <li>sample databases</li>
  244. <li>Act dependencies</li>
  245. </ul>
  246. This is going to save all Act developers, including myself a lot of work and time. I think this is a huge step forward to make Act hackable for anybody.
  247.  
  248. <p>I'm about to finish the last step in the installation procedure, so that will work nicely as it is supposed to work, not like some idiot me has smashed it together.</p>
  249.  
  250. <p>Then... it gets time for me to get the databases a bit more fancy and give Act a nice shiny <span class="caps">DBI</span>x::Class interface.</p>
  251.  
  252. <h1>Patch -p2 hackathon in Lyon</h1>
  253.  
  254. <p>I'm looking forward to the end of november, when Patch -p2 will be held in Lyon. I hope a lot of fundamental things have changed before then so we can all work on some fresh hackable environment</p>

  281.  
  282. <p>As in the original proposal for the Grant, it was stated I would not start before the second half of september because of a project that is very tight on the deadline.</p>
  283.  
  284. <p>However that does not mean that nothing happens. On the contrary, not without reason at the last evening of <span class="caps">YAPC</span>::EU::2014 I briefly showed the official Startrek Voyager opening video: this project already has gotten into 'Warp Speed'.</p>
  285.  
  286. <p>I held a brief introduction LightningTalk at the first day, called 'the Long Journey' see <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/theovanhoesel/the-long-journey-part-2">my SlideShare upload</a></p>
  287.  
  288. <p>The next day there was a BoF with a dozen people showing up that had different kinds off interests:</p>
  289.  
  290. <ul>
  291. <li>people that want a complete rewrite</li>
  292. <li>people that want a quick fix and new features on top of the current <span class="caps">ACT</span></li>
  293. <li>people that want to change the internals first</li>
  294. </ul>
  295. Doing a total rewrite, as usually, was being advised against, but has some challenging aspects. Making it possible to start hacking on the current version of <span class="caps">ACT </span>has the advantage that things can start immediately... although there has been proposed to make the current Apache1/ModPerl version of <span class="caps">ACT </span>run inside a <span class="caps">PSGI </span>environment. Haarg has previously made a <span class="caps">PSGI </span>port (3 years ago), which has not yet been merged back, due to deployment changes required for current live setup. SawyerX is working on a revised approach which may not need this. Once one of these solutions is merged in, it will be possible to hack on the current version at two different fronts: add features and hack the core in the meantime.
  296.  
  297. <p>We are looking forward to see what Sawyer is doing for some kind of wizardry.</p>
  298.  
  299. <p>Thank you Todd Rinaldo for setting up a new <span class="caps">ACT </span>repository at GitHub and creating the teams and send out the invitations.</p>
  300.  
  301. <p>During Lunch with BooK I was very happy to hear how he sees how this <span class="caps">ACT</span> Voyager project will work in conjunction with the current <span class="caps">ACT </span>repository at GitHub and the servers.</p>
  302.  
  303. <p>BooK suggested that whenever the Voyager team does a pull request on the original BooK/ACT repository, it will be checked out at the <span class="caps">ACT </span>test server to see how the changes will effect in real life situations. From there, it will go to the real <span class="caps">ACT </span>server. This cycle should be done as quick and frequent as possible after the pull-request. This way, the effort people take to work on the new repository will show up in production soon and it will not slow down the project.</p>
  304.  
  305. <p>One thing that BooK suggested will certainly help in moving forward more quickly: some discipline for all those that want to hack on the old code! Once the <span class="caps">DBI</span>x::Class schema is functional and working, there is still code in the <span class="caps">ACT</span>::Core that needs to be updated. All developers that want to add or edit features in the old version that rely on modules in the core, should first fix all the methods in core before adding on top off it... and test, test test. Once that stage has passed and committed (and merged) hacking on the features itself can start. This way, we make developers more responsible and involved in the whole project.</p>
  306.  
  307. <p>Later this year, BooK will organise a hackathon in Lyon. Salve J. Nilsen has already scheduled the hackathon in Oslo in May next year.</p>
  308.  
  309. <p>I am very grateful for all the support I get from people more intelligent than I am and specialised in important technologies that <span class="caps">ACT </span>will be build on.</p>

  493.        <![CDATA[<p>It is our pleasure to announce that Booking.com has donated the sum of $60,000 to the Perl Foundation to aid with further development of the Perl 5 programming language. This donation is a further contribution to the Core Maintenance Fund (P5CMF) that Booking.com has consistently supported over several years. This donation is a another step in the support that Booking.com gives to <span class="caps">TPF </span>and the broader Perl community.</p>
  494.  
  495. <p>Darren Huston, Chief Executive Officer of Booking.com, said "Perl is central to the success of Booking.com." By continuing with grants, supporting Perl community events and hackathons: </p>
  496.  
  497. <p>"we keep up our tradition of giving back to the community. As one of the world's largest employers of Perl developers, an investment for us into a healthy and dynamic Perl community is an investment in the future of our company and innovative web development in general."</p>
  498.  
  499. <p>Booking.com has also recently entered into an arrangement to continuously fund some of David Mitchell's work on the Perl 5 Core. This has a specific focus towards performance improvements and evolution of the language in line with the vision of the project leader. This future-focus secures Perl's relevance as an enterprise grade language for large web applications.</p>
  500.  
  501. <p>"It is always a tremendous pleasure to work with Booking.com," said Karen Pauley, President of the Perl Foundation. </p>
  502.  
  503. <p>"With Booking.com it goes far deeper than a desire to promote our language or support our community, it is a genuine feeling that they wish to belong which is why they involve themselves so much. They are a part of the Perl family."</p>
  504.  
  505. <p>Since the foundation of Booking.com, in 1996, the company has built its IT infrastructure on myriad of open source projects and products. These include Linux, MySQL, Nginx, Hadoop, and Redis to complement a strong association with the Perl programming language. Because of this, Booking.com is a keen supporter of the Perl and open source communities. As Steffen Mueller, Senior Manager for Technology and Infrastructure at Booking.com, would say:</p>
  506.  
  507. <p>"Developers at Booking.com are encouraged to release code to Open Source projects. Booking.com has a culture of contributing to the Open Source community. Our staff are regular attendees and speakers at Perl events, but also find themselves at non-Perl conferences. We are happy to hire talented developers from a variety of backgrounds and varying skill sets and re-train them in the Booking.com culture and Perl language."</p>

  564.  
  565. <p>First of all, thank you for submitting this application.  It's always good to see new faces.  </p>
  566.  
  567. <p>For this grant, we are unable to find a reason to spend a large portion of the community money on this new web framework at this point.  We would like to see the author continue the development of Nile and get some more community support on it first.</p>
  568.  
  569. <p><a href="http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/09/grant-proposal-ioall-redux.html">IO::All Redux</a></p>
  570.  
  571. <p>We approve this grant.  We will not fund this grant at this point and will re-evaluate this in the next round.  </p>
  572.  
  573. <p><a href="http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/09/grant-proposal-inlinecpp-modul.html">Inline::C(PP) Module Support</a></p>
  574.  
  575. <p>We are pleased that the Grants Committee will approve and fund this grant.  This will be useful for the community and we already saw enough positive feedback.  It should be noted that the total score was the second highest this year after the Perl::Lint grant.</p>
  576.  
  577. <p>Mark Jensen agreed to be the grant manager.</p>
  578.  
  579. <p><a href="http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/09/grant-proposal-pegex-grammar-f.html">Pegex Grammar for YAML</a></p>
  580.  
  581. <p>We understand YAML is used in a number of places and the grant has certain value.  However at this point we are not able to approve it.</p>
  582.  
  583. <p><a href="http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/09/grant-proposal-swim-to-pod.html">Swim Pod</a></p>
  584.  
  585. <p>We hope we can discuss this grant after Swim gets wider adoption and community support.</p>

  708.  
  709. <p>For the proposals from Ingy and David, we also got the following statement from them:</p>
  710.  
  711. <blockquote>
  712.  <p>Ingy döt Net and David Oswald have a number of ambitious Perl related projects that we would like to collaborate on. We think that having a pair of programmers fulfilling grants will lead to a better experience for all.</p>
  713.  
  714. <p>We have thought up about a dozen potential ideas, and we think 4 of them are ready to propose now. The others will come to fruition over time.</p>
  715.  
  716. <p>(snip)</p>
  717.  
  718. <p>Our ideal situation would be to continually propose 3-5 grants every 2 months, but only have 1 of them granted at a time. This is of course, up to you and based on your perception of the merit of our proposals, but hopefully we can get better and better at providing projects that really move Perl forward.</p>
