And where back for another round!
Today I diversified:
- Before the coffee break:
- Szabo’s “Debugging Perl - using the available debuggers”: Light introduction to debugging in Perl, from simple print statements through the Data::Dumper, the perl internal debuger (perl -d - at some extent) and ptkdb;
- Christoffel’s “Visualizing Data with Curses.pm and Tk::Text”: Again light introduction to using Curses and Tk::Text to display data in a more “human readable way”. Essencialy we where shown the basic functions and ways to put things on the screen where we want them;
- Before Lunch:
- Guttman’s “ Better Perl Code in 65 Minutes”: Man, I’ve heard all of this many, many times and I still think everyone (including me, of course) should get a lecture like this every 6 months or so… Essencially the dos and don’ts of programming, and also some things I didn’t know or have already long forgoten…
- and on to
- Stray Toaster’s “All I Need to know about Perl Programming I learned from Fairy Tales” - I wont writeup all the topics but it is true, it all came from fairy tales!
