On development in perl
If you go to a bookstore to get some books about modern software development, you will find a lot there, but all these books are written from and written for the "java-guys". In my opinion we need to show, that you can use all these techniques in perl too...
Test Driven Development
I cannot remember a time, where modules in perl from cpan were without a test-suite, and we have many test-modules out there, but all the books about tdd are about Java or .Net.
Automatic Acceptance Tests
All agile developers love automatisation. There is Fit developed in java and you need some time to find Test::C2FIT and even then, the documentation is not so easy to read, so we germans are happy to find the Fit Cookbook (in german)
Domain Specific Language (DSL)
I don't know a language in wich it is easier to build up domain-specific-languages, but if you look up the books, you will again find examples in java and in ruby.
Beginners will today start with php or ruby on rails, why does noone recognizes the beautiful catalyst?
Object Oriented Programming
Again most of the books are about Java and .Net, where is the book concerning Moose?
I think, we need to have better "marketing" and we need some books, showing all the "modern techniques" in the market with our valueable tools in perl.
