My Perlmonks Anniversarry

by sweetblood (Prior)
on Aug 05, 2004 at 13:48 UTC ( #380255=perlmeditation: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It has been 1 year to the day that I first stumbled through The Monastery Gates here. I had been programming for quite sometime (years) but in Perl for only a few. Plus, all I had learned was self-taught. I came with many bad habits, and mis-conceptions. And though I had written many useful and powerful perl scripts it was with much agony and wasted time. After resting here and hearing the meditations, and getting involved in the community, I am now recovering nicely. Having learned much through the strictures and warnings, I felt it would be good to reflect on all I've gleaned in these hallowed halls.

And to thank all of you for your help as well as sparking much thought and meditation on so many subjects.

I began compiling a list of those monks who were particually helpful to me, but I quickly realized that it is the community of monks here that is most valuable. Also I realized that I could never list accurately each of the individuals.

And if I've been of any assistance to anyone here, may I say it has been my pleasure. I look forward to another great year here at The PerlMonks Monastery

Thank you all!

    Forgive my saying, but you sound a bit like a fanatic. I mean, after all, it's just Perl, a programming language, and I seriously doubt that the purpose of the `monastery' and `monks' metaphores are meant to be anything but funny (remember cowboy neal with hat). Anyway, when it comes to Perl, the community has much skilled and experienced people to offer and they've always answered my questions, even though sometimes they weren't as friendly as I'd expected them to be.
