What's wrong with CPAN Testers? What can we do to improve the testing culture of CPAN? More organizations are using CPAN-like distributions to manage their Perl deployments, making the CPAN toolchain more important than ever. This talk covers the history, advantages and disadvantages of the CPAN Testers ecosystem and introduces a new release testing philosophy for the CPAN, called CPANci. I will present a detailed tour of the technological infrastructure behind CPANci.org, and a live demo of how CPANci works. The talk concludes with a demonstration of how CPANci can be used both publicly on the CPAN and within your organization to effect immediate and accurate smoke reports for any CPAN-like distribution release.
