in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?

Did you ask them what technology they were using? And why? And was the answer "Because it is exciting"?


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    Yes I did ask them (I was kind of looking for a potential job). In general what they used was Rails, Python (I think Django), PHP, Haskel and Erlang. I did not ask directly about the reasons - but sometimes they did talk about it spontaneously and the reasons were different for each one just like the exact technology they used.

[Corion]: So after talking it through with you even while I'm still not entirely clear on where AE ends and my implementation begins, I think I understand that I only need to implement some smaller parts for each functionality I want to support.
[Corion]: Yeah... and you might even be able to mix and match additional functionality if you have additional async suppliers, like from a separate thread
[ambrus]: You hvae to be careful with the timer, because apparently Prima::Timer insists on being periodic, wheras AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::timer should give a one-shot timer watcher
[ambrus]: I think the minimal implementation here is just a timer and io function, plus pushing to the @REGISTRY.
