"Has anyone benefitted from using this web site?"

Yes, me - definitely.

I'm here since 11/2/12, so i'm still a newbie at the monastery but i'm not new to perl. Please see karlgoethebier for details.

I think there are some approved methods for learning anything:

  1. Read a book (aka RTFM in this case)
  2. Study the work of other people (aka "read their code" in this case)
  3. Ask if you don't understand (fits at any case)
  4. Talk with others about your/their work (aka discourse)

The monastery matches each of these items. You have tutorials, you can read other peoples code and ask and discuss about it.

This is the way i do it:

At work, after reading my mails a.s.o, i take a short look at the monastery.

I trie to understand some of the new questions/answers. Fast at first, i think this a very good exercise.

If i have some time leftover, i take a deeper look at the issues, perhaps after work.

If i know any solution, i share it.

Sometimes i ask a question. This is always enlightening to me, no matter how awkward or cool my questions are.

So i'm getting better, day by day - in little steps. Quite simple.

And that's why this site is great.

Update: I forgot to mention that i'm having fun at the monastery...

Best regards, Karl

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
