The O'Reilly folks asked me to write a short article about
the new Program Repair Shop and Red Flags
class I'll be giving at the Open Source Convention.
Some of you might find the article fun and interesting:
In this year's Perl track, I'll be doing a new
class, called "Perl Program Repair Shop
and Red Flags." In the class, I look at some
examples of a beginner's code, and then I go
through the code, a bit at a time, explaining
what is wrong with it and how to make it
better. At the end, the program does the
same thing, but is shorter, easier to
understand, more robust, and more flexible.
Hence "Program Repair Shop."
