Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [cpan.org] modules [cpan.org] to CPAN, giving talks [2shortplanks.com], and use of the Trelane nick on #london.pm for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

Certifiable Actions

[ #5584 ]
At about ten pm on December 31st last year, mstevens and I came to an agreement. We would get Java certification in the next six months, to see what the hype is all about. We'd been talking about it a lot on list and it seemed like a good idea. Of course then we consumed a lot to drink, set off fireworks, congaed through the neighboring houses and did all the other things one traditional does at new years. And then I forgot about it.

I love programming in Perl, but I'm not bigoted enough to think that there might not be something I can learn from another language. And I used to be a pretty good Java programmer - I've just got a bit rusty of late. So certification seems like a good idea all round.

So mstevens reminds me of this fact, six months and 11 days later and actually was organised enough to give me a number to call in order to get a voucher that I can use to book a test. All I need to do now is brush up on a bit of terminology and remember how to deal with a strict typed language again ;-)

I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
