Perl Challenges

[ #21726 ]

Since our Web application has worked without almost any problem, I'm looking for a new programming challenge. Next week I'm on a Red Hat training course, so I don't want to start anything fancy until I'm back from that.

I've started to play with Maypole. It's not bad really, the problem is that the articles are now woefully out of date, it's all changed since they were written - which caused me no end of pain trying to get it running this morning. A careful read of the POD, and some help from fellow perlmonks has allowed me to get the Beer.DB demo site running - though it's got problems and some of the pages don't work yet.

Should keep my busy for today... I've even got a valid business case for it, a colleague wants a web based "CRUD" interface for a simple task database. Maypole looks perfect for that.

  • If you fancy a challenge, and are interested in Ruby, you could try looking at Ruby on Rails [], which appears to be like Maypole, but in Ruby. I still need to look properly at both...


    • I don't know Ruby. It's one of those things I think I should know about, but have never had enough time to look into it. Alas there are quite a few things on my list, and I never seem to make any progress...

      -- "It's not magic, it's work..."
      • It seems pretty simple if you've spent more than 5 minutes on Perl OO code, or know a little bit of python.

        Coming back to rails though, I loved the demo movie [] (22Mb, quicktime).
