The Talks

Colin Newell - Creating a basic CPAN mirror/inject server using the Salt stack

A more sysadmin talk, with a bit of YAML for good measure.

Barbie - Testing Traps and Effects

An introduction to Test::Trap, and the recently written wrapper Test::Effects.

Handling exit, die and other signal terminations in your code can be tricky. In some cases you might want to force an error and see that it fails as you expect. In other cases you may want to run code and ensure no unintended side effects occur. These two test modules help with that and are a handy addition to your test suite.
