in thread Perl and Java comparison

In the programmer-time versus CPU-time comparison, it's useful to know how many times the program will be executed.

If the program is a data munging routine that will be written, run once on the test database, and then once on the live database, then never used again, the programmer's time is probably a lot more precious than the execution time.

But if the program is executed dozens of times each day, by hundreds of users, optimizing the run-time of the program, even at the expense of programmer time seems worthwhile.

package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
