in reply to Finding a module to work on

You might enjoy working on XML::Validator::Schema. It has a few nice properties as a learning project:

  • It was coded originally using test-driven development, so there's lots of good tests and a decent harness for adding more. If you break it, you'll know.
  • It's meant to implement a published, stable spec. You won't need any creativity to find more stuff to do and you'll have a great source of test cases.
  • People are begging for more features and will shower you with praise when you deliver them.
  • You'll get to put some buzz-words on your resume - hot ones like XML, XML Schema, SAX, etc.

    i wouldn't mind working on this myself. :-) Where do you suggest i begin?
      Great! I'd start by picking a small feature from the spec that XML::Validator::Schema doesn't support - some detail in the simple type system perhaps. First write a test case that fails, then implement the code necessary to get the test passing.


        Thanks! i'll get on to that as soon as i can. -- Alexis.
