A talk about the shape of the CPAN, and a map of his community. With the
help of Gephi (, we have created two maps: a topological map of the CPAN,
using data extracted from the CPAN, cpan testers', etc , and a map of
the CPAN community, constructed after crawling the web. We would like to
present the result of this works to the Perl community.
