Since the last year I found myself checking 'use Perl;' and clicking a couple of 'Recent Journal's' almost daily. Starting from that I'll try writing in my journal. The plan is to do a regular entry every two weeks.
So that's it for self motivation.
Now to my introduction.
I'm a 34 year old trained physicist, now doing software development and custumer support. Mostly I'm doing web application stuff for a Bioinformatics portal.
Yesterday a social meeting of the Munich Perl Mongers took place. Lively discussions were ranging from quantum dots to the state of documention of the Kwiki framework.
