in reply to Perl is Lego, PHP is Playmobil (don't take too seriously)

I ended my talk on Perl Culture at the Austrian Perl Workshop 2004 with a (not too serious) comparison of various programming langugages and toys:

  • Python is like Playmobil - it looks very nice, but there's only one way to do it
  • PHP is like wodden building blocks - it's easy to build something simple, but very hard to build something complex
  • Java is not a toy - it is a very serious tool used by big business who don't have place for concepts like 'fun'
  • Perl is like Lego.
You can look at all the slides here (the toys-slides are starting here), but they propably don't make much sense without my commentary (available here in German) (oh, to navigate the slides, hit 'ENTER' for next or 'DEL' for previous, if you use Mozilla. Else, increment the filename :-)

    If you add a vote-feature to the slides, I'll ++ them :)
