[META] The Topic List on is Out-of-Date

[ #33037 ]

I believe the topics' list on "use Perl;" is heavily out of date. Maybe it was good enough when use Perl; started, but it's no longer up-to-date. Here are some missing topics:

  1. Software Testing - automated testing, quality assurance, TAP, etc.
  2. Ruby
  3. Apple and Macintosh.
  4. Dynamic Languages in General.
  5. Scheme and Lisp -
  6. Golf, Obfuscation, JAPHs - possibly all under Perl Culture or "Fun with Perl".
  7. Perl Humour.
  8. Haskell.
  9. General Philosophy.
  10. Functional Programming and Object Oriented Programming.
  11. Extreme Programming.

I'd appreciate any additions, but the point is that it needs some love. Well, since I complained about it, then I'd like to help remedy this. I can prepare some images for representing these topics. My artistic skills are close to zero, but I know how to use the GIMP and Inkscape, and can search for usable work online. I cannot add them myself without being made an admin of course.

So any more topics? Any comments? Any suggestions for graphics?
