in thread Damian praises Perl Monks

I've talked with the author and he plans to get some sample chapters together to shop to a publisher (Manning). He mentioned that he is having a weekly design patterns study group in London where he plans to try out the text. Currently there is only some intro text and the Factory pattern, but he expects to have several more patterns completed by end of year.

I thought the idea was so cool that I'm trying to put together a study group in Boston. If you're interested, join the list or email me directly at drew at drewtaylor dot com. Right now I'm thinking either before/after the monthly meeting or 1-2 times a month at some other location. I've done some studying of patterns, but I would love to have a better idea of how to properly implement them in perl. Anyone can code, but only some people have what it takes to properly program. ;-)

    Is there really that much benefit to collecting in person? Code review is best done at leisure, in my experience.

      The purpose is not for code review, but to study the patterns themselves and learn how and when to implement each. We'll also of course talk about how to implement them in perl, but I'm more interested in learning the patterns. I've skimmed the GoF book, and it's not light reading. I've found that for me, groups can help me to overcome those little stumbling blocks I can't quite get over. Sometimes all I need is just a little help to get to "Eureka!".

      Two minds are better than one.
