Ensuring Perl's Viability on FreeBSD

Added 01-Jan-1970

This meeting will be a joint effort by New York Perlmongers (NY.PM) and the New York City BSD User Group (NYCBUG). Members of the two organizations have collaborated this year to implement a major quality assurance program for the Perl 5 language's core distribution.

* Smoke-testing Perl 5 development branches and testing against CPAN libraries

* Why we chose to test on FreeBSD

* How we customized Vagrant/VirtualBox for this purpose

* How this enhances the viability of both Perl and FreeBSD

Presenters: Jim Keenan and Andrew Villano
