Re: How do I train myself to write more Perl-ish Perl, rather than C-ish Perl?

in reply to How do I train myself to write more Perl-ish Perl, rather than C-ish Perl?

Some ideas...

  • Read "Programming Perl". You'll be amazed at how much perl has to offer that you don't know about.
  • Study code written by people who predominantly use perl and do it well. Many of these people hang out here at PerlMonks and often post code.
  • Have your own code reviewed by those same people. There are several sections of the Monastery that you can post your code in. Anything you post will be reviewed.
  • Look at the modules installed on your system and see how they do things. Download modules that do things you're interested in and examine those.
  • Ask questions. If you think there might be another way or a better way, post what you have and ask others for suggestions. Use the chatterbox if it's small snippets of code.
  • Occassionally reread "Programming Perl". You'll be amazed at how much you missed the last time. (I'm on my fourth reading and still learning.
90% of every Perl application is already written.

[LanX]: evrybody can participate in a YAPC
choroba is still undecided what to present at YAPC
[LanX]: imagine the stock market if the choice for the second round would have been those two ...
[robby_dobby]: LanX: Not me. No YAPC in my country and the only one in Asia is so far off in Japan
[LanX]: Oh I thought "Misery" meant Missoury
[LanX]: where do you live?
[LanX]: YAPC Asia was renamed and you'd need to speak Japanese to be able to follow
[robby_dobby]: LanX: Misery :P
[robby_dobby]: Or India
LanX which means I can finally organize YAPC Asia in Sharm el Sheikh ;-)
