I wrote a Perl Poetry post once that I'm proud of. Hubris and all that, you know. :-)

I'm an Electronics Engineer by trade, and even worse, primarily an Electronics Hardware Designer (*gasp, shun the non-believer!).

After making it the better part of a decade in to my hardware career without coding much of anything, I learned this wonderful thing called Perl. I learned it because I was trying to automate a lot of the mundane out of my own job and possibly the jobs of my immediate colleagues. This effort was so successful that it blossomed in to automating a lot of other things outside of my own department, some data analytics, and a flurry of other random tasks.

Yes, the picture above was my dog, and yes, he was as awesome as he looks. RIP buddy, I miss you.
