I consider these talks reference material. I keep them updated and relevant so I can refer people to them. If I’ve missed anything feel free to create an issue on the github repo or contribute a pull request.

I originally gave this talk at Chicago.pm as part of a “Distribution Management Shootout” – a 3 way duel between

  • jberger’s talk about Module::Build and the “Classic” build systems
  • preaction’s talk about Dist::Zilla, and
  • my talk about Minilla and Carton.

It was a great overview of the most popular tools and I thought all the talks were worth checking out.
