Teaching Perl with Comedy
While testing some code for an forum answer i made a stupid mistake. It was late, I didn't thought of it, why in the world should I name the Module "Test" and wonder then why it behaves unexpected (I do know why! - some newb might not). But the more glorious idea is that we all have such moments and hide them carefully. Why not pile the xp up and make a Perl course out of it by showing what can go wrong and maybe even write it like a comedy? I saw even a motion picture in my mind about someone ranting how bad Perl is while making such moves.
Tuts are hard work, I know because i wrote some. To set up all the traps that a screwball comedy comes out of it that actually works dramaturgically should be even harder. But maybe someone runs with the idea.
