The success of a topical hackathon depends very much on who shows up. We'll be focusing on Moose and RDF-related stuff, so it's prudent to ask who is coming from the #moose, #p5-mop and #perlrdf communities?
I'm so glad you asked! :)
- Florian "rafl" Ragwitz
- A frequent contributor to the Perl 5 core as well as many Perl modules on CPAN. He is the principal organizer of the Perl Google Summer of Code and Google Code-in initiatives, one of the maintainers of MetaCPAN, and a speaker, contributor and attendee at many Perl conferences and events.
- Gregory Todd "kasei" Williams
- Author of RDF::Trine, RDF::Query and many other semantic web Perl modules. He is writing a Ph.D thesis at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, on efficient federated query answering on the web.
- Jesse "doy" Luehrs
- The current maintainer of Moose, KiokuDB, and Bread::Board::Declare. He works with Stevan at Infinity Interactive and has been working with him on the design and implementation of the p5-mop project.
- Jonathan "jnthn" Worthington
- Designer of Perl 6's Meta Object Protocol, which Moose is strongly inspired by.
- Kjetil "KjetilK" Kjernsmo
- RDF and Perl geek with background in W3C and 8 years of industry experience. Currently working on his Ph.d. on efficient federated query answering on distributed SPARQL data sources by exposing compact statistical digests.
- Konstantin "kba" Baierer
- He writes a Master's thesis about adding RDF semantics to Moose, and he has published MooseX::Semantic for this purpose.
- Marcus "marcus" Ramberg
- Perl hacker with a long background in the Catalyst, Moose and Mojolicious communities. Marcus was the first known user of Moose in a production application. Currently CTO of Nordaaker, where he hacks on Perl based web apps as well as IOS applications.
- Shawn M. "sartak" Moore
- One of Moose's maintainers having written popular modules like MooseX::Role::Parameterized, Mouse, and Any::Moose. He aims to make p5-mop as extensible as possible, ensuring that it can support systems even more intricate than Moose can.
- Stevan "stevan" Little
- The original author of Moose and Class::MOP and has been writing meta-circular object systems for fun for the last 7 years. Stevan's latest project is to get a new object system into the Perl core.
- Toby "tobyink" Inkster
- He is the author of a large number of RDF-related Perl modules on CPAN, including RDFa parsers, HTML5 microdata parsers, FOAF+SSL authentication modules, etc. He is also a co-inventor of the FOAF+SSL protocol.
You can also find an updated participant list on the hackathon website.
In other words, we're already looking good when it comes to participants. Wanna join us? :)
