"I won't aks you to grow up, but just sometime, please, aks yourself, OK, 'Who was saved?' That's all, rill easy, 'Who was saved?'... Just in the privacy of your thotz, Zoyd. As an exercise, li'l kinda Zen meditation. 'Who was saved?'... Here I thought you knew everything, it turns out you don't know ****."
— Thomas Pynchon, Vineland
Modern Perl: the book explains how Perl 5 works and how to take advantage of Perl 5.10, 5.12, and 5.14. It's from Onyx Neon press, an independent publisher of great technical books.
I've written, edited, and contributed to other technical books.
I maintain a list of Modern Perl resources.
I am available for development, mentoring, refactoring, and project management consulting. I can help your project succeed!
My work includes the technical direction of Big Blue Marble, and I am the lead developer of Trendshare, a site devoted to financial and investing literacy for novice investors (with a focus on value investing).
