Write implementation with additional features, like onsite publishing, tags, comments, some sort of back syncing. Whatever we will have time to.

We're going to publish everything in a public repository online or even keep up to date server for people to test the app in real time. So people from different places can join us on IRC or develop with us. Even if people don't want to develop they can help us find quick solutions or just keep pushing us by sarcastic comments :)


  • Write ready for deployment application within 8-12 hours
  • Share experience
  • Try collective rapid development
  • Try Catalyst framework
  • See how far we can go in a short period of time
  • Have a lot of fun
  • Eat pizza


perl 5.8, Catalyst, Plagger, git and many different modules from CPAN :)

Moscow Perl Mongers group organizes one day hackmeet next saturday

Next saturday (17 Jan 2009) Moscow Perl community going to hack whole day on a simple web-service project. All developers will be in one room with their laptops up to 12 hours and will try to make Catalyst based application start from blank paper. Experience of developers varies from "low perl" to "have some catalyst-based projects". It's gonna be fun.

Russian and English speaking communities who wouldn't be able to join us onsite can help us online. I've created IRC channel on for English speaking and there is on server for people speaking in Russian. We'll use git (may be svn) and will be posting commits to some public domain (github probably), so you'll be able to hack with us as well.

Details for attendies are on's mailing list.

You're welcome to join us onsite or online in IRC or repository. I'll keep posting details here.
