  • Commented on Is this a place where I can get some technical input?
    But, if you ask on a Perl site rather than Stack Overflow, you're also hopefully more likely to get several someones who will tell you to skip CGI if you can, and use something that runs better and is less...
  • Commented on Acceptable Community Standards
    > In words that are simply for the Brogrammers to understand: What I like about the Perl community is, I don't think we even have (m)any Brogrammers. Perl is not Rails and YAPCs are not JSConf. There is relatively little...
  • Commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks
    It doesn't matter if the comic sexualised software. That's not the point, that's a detail. It could have been a comic saying "Perl + Moose is like Perl on steroids" and then having bodybuilders feeling offended or uncomfortable. The point...
  • Commented on Books, books, books ...
    Of course Josette is coming this year as well??...
  • Commented on Start times for the conference
    3 tracks would be nicer than 4 I think, since no matter what there are usually a few you want to attend who go all at once :)...
  • Commented on Perl tutorials suck (and cause serious damage)
    Meta keywords are almost entirely useless. Because, as so many other things, they were ruined by spammers. Yahoo bots do look at it, but they don't count as anything towards perceived relevancy....
  • Commented on Perl tutorials suck (and cause serious damage)
    Front-end web development has a similar issue: the abomination known as w3schools.com gets passed around from newbie to newbie. Eventually some of the standardistas made a site, w3fools.com and have been pushing it hard. It also similarly has trouble listing...
  • Commented on Failing your way to success with A/B Testing
    A/B testing is best left for small optimisations, and other forms of user testing are best for large changes/creations. There's a gamut of different types of user testing, and web sites (and businesses) who want to be successful would be...
  • Commented on Pisa Résumé
    The Rebol talk was sooo interesting. I'm glad you went ahead and did it! And, hi : )...
  • Commented on HTTP::BrowserDetect for all of your UserAgent parsing needs
    I don't want to rain on the party, and definitely appreciate people updating modules... as Matt would say, "well-volunteered!" However, I need to say browser sniffing is generally a very very very bad idea (well, maybe that depends what you're...

  • Sawyer X commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    I can speak volumes about this topic (and perhaps next time we'll be at the same conference, we should), but meanwhile I'll simply say: you were right about what Schwern did (most of it, at least) but he was right about it. The fact that you have an open mind (happy to hear you do!) doesn't mean you don't alienate others or necessarily notice it. My mother tongue isn't English either. Does that mean I don't alienate others, such as women? Hmm... no, it doesn't. I'm sorry this hurt your feelings, but that's simply how the world works sometimes. We don't always notice damage we do, and…

  • A. Sinan Unur commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    @SawyerX I'd like to get a few glasses of your favorite beverage just to thank for Dancer which I seriously love. We can also talk about this topic. But, now that I explained myself one more time, I am going to refrain from further commentary.

    As for Linus' comment ... He is a rather public person. I do not specifically follow him, but Google+ keeps putting his stuff in my stream via "What's Hot on Google?", so that's a public forum.

    He referred to a particular group's religious beliefs as "bats**t crazy" which would definitely create an unwelcoming environment for members of…

    I hope we could meet at the next YAPC and I could buy you a drink as well for your contributions to Perl (and to YAPCs!) next time. :)

  • Kal commented on Acceptable Community Standards

    Its really nice to see this sort of feedback. I'm glad that others feel the same way. These sorts of ugly incidents may have the reverse effect as I'm seeing the really good side of the community and may try to attend more events.

    I'm autodidactic, but I get to the point where my growth is limited by my ability to talk through problems with other people. I live in perl-land. And its awesome that I don't have to change my toolset to keep up with the times or to keep away from social ignorance.

    The best place for Perl help is http://perlmonks.org
