in reply to poll ideas quest 2007

I did my due diligance, and found What do you call yourself? from June of 2004. It was a thread, not a poll, slightly different in orientation (it was about what you are called by others; I'm curious what you call yourself), and a fair amount of time has passed:

What do you consider yourself?

  • Software Engineer / Hardware Engineer Firmware Engineer
  • Web Designer
  • Programmer
  • Developer
  • Communications Tech
  • Student / Teacher
  • Technical Support / Speaker to Users
  • Technical Lead / Project Manager
  • Architect
  • DBA
  • SysAdmin
  • Consultant
  • Systems Analyst
  • Security Specialist
  • Manager
  • Data Miner
  • Jack of All Trades
  • God
  • All of the above
  • Most of the above
  • Some of the above
  • None of the above
Revised Included cbu suggestions.

    The last option definitely should be a valid option in the Dutch political voting system. It is not yet.

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
