Just a simple [cpan.org] guy, hacking Perl for fun and profit since way back in the last millenium. You may find me hanging around in the monestary [perlmonks.org].

What am I working on right now? Probably the Sprog project [sourceforge.net].

Wellington.pm meeting

[ #29894 ]

We had around 20 people at last night's meeting - which is a healthy number. Any more and we'll need a bigger room.

Peter Love talked first about how he makes a living as a freelancer using Perl. Then it was my turn to talk about Test-Driven Development with Perl.

Next meeting will be on July 11th.

    • Bugs!?! What bugs?

      But seriously, yes, it was a very 'interactive' session.

      I didn't actually go through all the slides. When I got to the interactive demo bit, I started with a complete .t file but with'__END__' after each test - so only the first one ran (and failed). Then I interactively typed in the code to make the test pass; removed the next '__END__' and repeated. That worked pretty well for a start but I probably should have switched back to the slides after people began to get the idea.

      I'd h
