Really? Where's your first major module? Does it have a comprehensive test suite that registers at least a 90% using Devel::Cover? Heck, I have a CPAN distribution that is close to 10,000 lines that barely breaks 60% coverage and a multi-billion dollar company uses it as a major underpinnign for a $100Million/year application.
Remember - the first rule of code is "It has to work". Nothing more, nothing less. Anything beyond that is gravy. Code will not suddenly develop bugs, just by sitting there and being used. Software develops bugs only by developers introducing them.
Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
