  • Commented on how I learned to plot a mandelbrot set
    Hi David, I'm sending you a PM because even though I agree that it is as good a forum as anything else in general, this good forum doesn't notify me when I get comments. Or at least I can't find...
  • Commented on how I learned to plot a mandelbrot set
    @Book cool! :) @David thank you! Btw I was always meant to ask you but kept forgetting - PDL::Drawing/Graphics/Prima don't include image management routines, and image plotting examples are rather slow because they do it rectangle-wise using pdl_bars .. did...
  • Posted how I learned to plot a mandelbrot set to Dmitry Karasik

    When I first met fractals in the school, I thought that they were if not magic, then something very close to it. The concept of a fractal dimension was something I couldn't react to logically, but only emotionally, basically, with a "wow" and…

  • Commented on A Tiny Code Quiz
    The explanation for 4 is slightly wrong, it should be, quote perldoc scalar, "Evaluates all but the last element in void context and returning the final element evaluated in scalar context" But it's curious how perl allows passing more than...
  • Commented on Data::Dumper::GUI
    Toby, Steven: there is expanding with mouse, it seems that both of you have Prima compiled without GIF support somehow and that's why it's disable. If Prima has it, outline widget shows small extra [+] and [-] icons next to...
  • Commented on Data::Dumper::GUI
    Hi Toby, I think this is a very cool app! If you need help with base Prima api, TextView or whatever else please don't hesitate to ask, I'll be glad to help. As for the fixed font problem, I'll see...
  • Posted twinkle twinkle catalyst to Dmitry Karasik

    I'm developing under Catalyst and am using the Catalyst test server that is running on my local machine and is reloading every time I'm saving changes to the source tree. This is a cool feature, but I have to wait in front of the browser until the application is loaded full and can answer http…

  • Commented on A brief introduction to Prima
    I'd also like to thank Fabio for his efforts! I myself lack the style to present material easy enough for the beginners, so if this series will continue that would be great...

  • Commented on Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    @Chad Thanks for the effort, I remember I tried that thing with @INC some years ago, when it wasn't established yet, and didn't work the way I hoped. It's great to know that it is solid now....
  • Commented on Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    @Steffen: that's interesting! is this the branch you're referring to? http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/branches/fastio/ I can't find anything related there, sorry...
  • Posted Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC? to Dmitry Karasik

    An article written by brian d foy What if we could drop archives into @INC? got me thinking. Indeed, I've been burned myself by PAR, which is a great instrument, but I don't like that it…

  • Commented on On defined(@array) and defined(%hash)
    My 5 cents here: I personally couldn't make any use of discussions on p5p, and my very subjective view is that Reini couldn't either, therefore the rant. Imagine you're trying to get your point through, cannot, feel ignored, and venting...
  • Commented on Your Perl-driven cyborgs can soon recognize objects
    Awesome! Any chance to get it working together with PDL?...
  • Commented on What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    I've deployed standalone perl apps and missed the feature greatly back then. It was rather annoying and tedious to hand-roll a self-unpacking perl directory with all modules and what not. I've tried PAR, it can make a one-contains-all exe file,...
  • Commented on Those TIFF files
    You're welcome to try the latest Prima on these files use Prima; Prima::Image->load('a.tif')->save('a.jpg'); or even send the worst ones to me -- i'm keeping a small collection of tiff pecularities ;)...
  • Posted Those TIFF files to Dmitry Karasik

    While releasing and compiling Prima 1.33 for 5 different perls, I'm taking a moment to send a couple of warm ones towards the TIFF specification. Prima originally was written to be used in (among other) software for microscopy recordings, and…

  • Posted udp_server with IO::Lambda to Dmitry Karasik

    I'm turning again to my module IO::Lambda, which I think, doesn't get the resonance it could have. I've seen AnyEvent's tcp_server, which is great and easy to use, and was reluctant to add one to IO::Lambda, because it's so easy.…

  • Posted ASUS EPU-6 utility hacked with Win32::GuiTest to Dmitry Karasik

    Some time ago I've bought a windows desktop with ASUS EPU6 because I wanted my desktop to be extra quiet. It is quiet indeed, but it's done by a special GUI utility, where one should compromise first between noise and CPU speed. That utility runs on startup, remembers its last setting, and…

    You got my name wrong.

    And you forgot to change your bio. (It still says "I blog about Perl").

  • Gabor Szabo commented on booking.com - a toxic company for developers

    Aristotle,

    I don't care so much about Booking.com, but I don't want to alienate everyone else from Perl, and from the Perl community. Neither individuals nor companies.

    I don't think the biggest and most official-looking Perl-related web-site should allow personal attacks, nor should it be a place of bad-mouthing any company.


  • jouke.visser commented on booking.com - a toxic company for developers

    What a bunch of bullsh*t.

    I've worked for Booking.com between 2003 and 2010, and in that time I've been very much involved in the hiring process. I used to be one of those team leads that you mention by name. I know most of these as great colleagues, honest, intelligent and reliable people. I say most of these, because some of them were hired after I left, so I can't vouch for those I don't know.

    The reason I left Booking.com was not because it's an evil company. I left for personal reasons that had very little to do with the company.

    I've promoted Booking.com volunt…

    Sounds all familiar:

    http://blogs.perl.org/users/bookingemployee/2012/03/truth-about-bookingcom.html

    Further more, I can not comment on anything mentioned in either posts as I do not work for the company.
    I only know some great people working at 'the Bank' which do provide the community with wonderful modules at CPAN that make our lives as developer zoo much easier.
    Also they host the AmsterdamX.pm group that shares knowledge on wonderful technical stuff month after month…

  • JustOneOfMany commented on booking.com - a toxic company for developers

    As a "core employee" of Booking I would like to take this opportunity to make further comments to some of the replies and how this whole thing is working.

    The "chaos" they try to "control" (one of the principals here at Booking) is slowly getting "out of control" as with company grow , lack of proper workflows makes it everyday more "unstable"

    In reply to @Haico:
    "Untrue. Most people get permanent contracts from the start at Booking.com"
    --> Unfortunately I have seen many occasions where a "promise" of permanent contract never got fulfilled.

    "Untrue. Qua…
