JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Two Birds, One Stone, And A Partridge In A Pear Tree

[ #12026 ]
Trying to learn two things at once, I coded a small object system to work as glue between my idea for a word-association-web-page-finder and XML::Simple.

I've gotten a lot of practice with references as a result, and I needed it. I'm starting to actually know what's in a data structure when I code them from time to time, mostly because of Data::Dumper. Frequently, when the data structure doesn't fit right with object or something using the data structure, Dumper is what helps me figure out where I went wrong. That, plus I've had perlboot, perlbot, and perltoot open during all my coding.

Probably once I finish working on this I'll post it at the Monastery for a code review. I could use that; I don't know if my code is as sharp as it was, or if it's actually improved.

Working more on trying to be hirable. Anybody got any feedback on _What Color Is Your Parachute_? I'm reading it currently, and considering using its techniques.

  • parachute++ ; while it didn't help me find the job I wanted immediately, it put me on the path to finding it :-) The exercises in parachute really made me think about what sort of work I would enjoy doing...and that is the key.
