CPAN Testing has grown in popularity and awareness over the last few years, but there are still areas of testing that desperately need your help. This talk takes a look at what CPAN Testing is, why it's useful and why it gives Perl an edge. The talk will provide an introduction to setting up your own CPAN Testing test rig, and provide some useful hints and tips for authors and testers alike for how to work through any issues.

Topics include:

* History/Background to CPAN Testers
* CPAN Testers reporting
* The Automated Testing Methods
* The CPAN Testers community
* The Future of CPAN Testing

A CPAN Testers BOF is planned to provide a longer discussion time for testers.
