Duration: 40 minutes

As a part of the development strategy Module::Build has been chosen as the preferred build, test and deployment system by the speaker.

Having used Module::Build for a few CPAN modules and finding out how easy it was to extend - experiments where begun to see how well it scaled and the experiment has been nothing but a success.

Module::Build lets you tweak where it is necessary without having to send patches to its author.

Module::Build is now used as Build, Test, Configuration and Deployment system for everything from module size and up.

The presentation will go over the general use of Module::Build and how to extendit with practical and real-life examples taken from current project from the
speakers portfolio.

- Extending Module::Build being the the standard
- subclassing
- overloading

- Influencing build proces behaviour
- arguments and omnipresence

- A few hacks and other small things

The presentation will not be a walk through of the Module::Build source, since the speaker is not its author, but will be an introduction to use of Module::Build and extending Module::Build still using the standard Module::Build.
