getting further with module-starter

After 15 minutes or so I passed all the built-in tests, noticing that a "coverage" test was skipped I wasn't quite filled with the sense of accomplishment I was after. I quickly installed the dependent Pod::Coverage and soon became aware to what a naked subroutine was.

30 minutes after that I was now passing all the built-in tests for my distribution that come with module-starter.

I was then able to leave my cube with a sense of success

Module::Starter is awesome. It has done a great job of holding my hand through the development of a real module distribution I hope to release to the CPAN.

I'm working my way through Perl Testing by Ian Langworth and chromatic in parallel with Sam Tregar's Writing Perl Modules for CPAN.

This next month will truly be a leaning experience for me. Getting into developing in a more ridged and structured way has really been fun.

Hello World x 30

I'm in a training class today titled "Open Source Software in Libaries". The first topic was the instructor's definition of open sources. The second topic, Perl. Cool. The next thing was even cooler - I wittnessed everyone in the lab write their first hello world program in Perl. I actually got butterflies in my stomach. It's a difficult feeling to explain.

New Perl Books Arrived Today!

  • Simon Cozens, Advanced Perl Programming
  • Damian Conway, Perl Best Practices
  • Joseph Hall / Randal Schwartz, Effective Perl Programming

I'm really excited to get around to reading these. The only one I've ever thumbed through was Effective Perl Programming, I know it's old, but I remember it being full of hints, tips and techniques I never knew existed.

The more I read about p6 the more comfortable I am with *learning* a new perl.

Pugs Installed

Humm. Pugs wasn't that hard to install - the more I use linux the more I like it.

I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with pugs - I guess learn Perl 6.




Oh, today's my birthday.

By the time people are using Perl 6 in production I hope I'm a manager or something... or programming Ruby.

What a baby

[ #25926 ]
I'd been on this list for a few weeks, and I liked it. Too bad it's history now.
