16:21 lichtkind can anybody explain how to get a diff at github?
16:22 moritz_ just click on one of the fine URLs here
16:23 lichtkind moritz_: got it it was just i expected textchange but there was only file rename
16:23 lichtkind was confused
16:23 lichtkind im just starting with git
16:25 cognominal github is sooo slow :(
17:58 Su-Shee joined #perl6book
18:01 moritz_ ping *
18:02 moritz_ this might become a rather boring meeting ;-)
18:02 moritz_ so I hope the others will backlog
18:03 moritz_ there are a few questions I'd like to bring up
18:03 * jnthn is here
18:03 moritz_ 1) I'd like to propose #ps-like meetings where people pre-post their reports, if any.
18:03 jnthn Actually dinner at least 10 mins away from ready :-)
18:04 dukelet0 joined #perl6book
18:04 moritz_ 2) we'll have our first announcement soon - what distribution channels do we want?
18:04 lanny joined #perl6book
18:04 moritz_ I can think of a) my blog b) use.perl.org c) perl6.announce
18:04 moritz_ anything else?
18:05 moritz_ 3) it would really help my writing if I had a better idea what has been expained at what point in the book
18:05 moritz_ so I encourage people to hack away on outline.pod, or submit parts of chapters
18:06 moritz_ doesn't have to be anything final/worked out or so
18:06 Su-Shee moritz_: would you like an inspiration which might help you with 3)?
18:06 moritz_ Su-Shee: sure
18:06 jnthn moritz_: maybe announce on rakudo.org too, since the book will be around the same time as Rakudo *.
18:06 mdxi joined #perl6book
18:07 moritz_ jnthn: ok
18:08 Su-Shee moritz_: 4 years ago, a "practical lisp" book was published which is excellent and very much in this "real world examples" style. chaper by chapter also important concepts are explained and expanded while mentioning why "this way" and not "that way".
18:08 Su-Shee moritz_: it's online here:
18:08 Su-Shee http://gigamonkeys.com/book/
18:09 moritz_ Su-Shee: thanks, I'll look at it
18:11 moritz_ oh, and PerlJam++ for the preface, masak++ for the object example
18:13 jnthn I plan to take the object example from masak and try and start filling out some explanation, if that's OK with folks.
18:14 moritz_ sure, go ahead
18:14 moritz_ I also pondered doing that
18:14 jnthn :-)
18:14 moritz_ but I guess I should add more explanations for the basic multi dispatch example first
18:14 jnthn OK. I'll try and commit some writings on object stuff in the next day or two.
18:15 moritz_ great
18:15 jnthn It'll make as some relief from The Branch.
18:15 pmichaud hello all, I'm here but also chatting in lots of other windows
18:16 moritz_ that's fine
18:17 moritz_ there doesn't seem to be lots of things to discuss
18:17 pmichaud last night my wife asked if we were going to cover database and web in the book
18:17 jnthn moritz_: If you want me to review/comment on multi-dispatch stuff you've written, let me know.
18:17 pmichaud those were the two applications she thought would be of greatest usefulness and utility
18:17 jnthn (e.g. when you're at a point when you would find input useful)
18:18 moritz_ jnthn: thanks; so far it's basic enough that I manage on my own ;-)
18:18 moritz_ pmichaud: that's both interesting and tough
18:18 pmichaud well, it would be really good to have a chapter on Web.pm
18:18 moritz_ let's ask masak when he turns up
18:18 pmichaud I agree database might be tricky
18:19 pmichaud but Paula says those are the two areas that always come up in her workplace
18:19 jnthn moritz_: Oh, I don't doubt you can handle it, I just meant another set of eyes on it and some feedback, if I spot anything of note. :-)
18:19 moritz_ depends on how far Squerl or dbdi comes along
18:19 moritz_ jnthn: ok
18:22 dakkar joined #perl6book
18:22 PerlJam joined #perl6book
18:22 PerlJam doh!
18:24 jnthn A deer!
18:25 * PerlJam saw the announcement for p6b and then promptly forgot about it
18:26 PerlJam regarding announcements ... perlbuzz.com ?  Will the  first release be buzz-worthy?
18:27 jnthn How much noise do we want to make at this stage?
18:27 moritz_ maybe not too much
18:27 jnthn Is it mostly of interest to people already following Perl 6, or of wider interest?
18:27 jnthn I'd say probably at this point, more the former.
18:27 * moritz_ too
18:28 PerlJam sounds good to me.
18:28 PerlJam what about perlmonks.org?
18:28 moritz_ perlbuzz and perlmonks when it's actually out and in print
18:28 PerlJam (I ask about perlmonks because use.perl.org is a bit of a wider audience than just perl 6 people)
18:29 PerlJam but both use.perl and perlmonks have perl 6 questions/discussion come up
18:29 PacoLinux joined #perl6book
18:30 PacoLinux left #perl6book
18:38 Su-Shee buzz later, please. not like the apress perl 6 book which is announced for 2 years now and in my amazon shopping basket..
18:39 pmichaud I'd post to p6u, article on rakudo.org would work
18:39 pmichaud use.perl is fine also, and p6l probably too
18:40 pmichaud beyond that, I'd let others buzz about it instead of our promoting it further.
