Fifth Part of Perl for Perl Newbies and New Humour Items
Here are the recent updates for Shlomi Fish’s Homepage. I know I have not posted an update to this blog in a while, and in part it’s due to the fact that I have not done as much work on the site as I have before the previous update. But there is still some new things to look forward to.
Sophie: I’m hungry today.
Jack: well, wait until tomorrow - maybe this feeling will pass.
I’m now mirroring the “English is a Crazy Language” bit I found somewhere.
The fifth installment in the Perl for Perl Newbies series of presentations is now available online. This part covers good programming practices such as using a version control system, writing automated tests, and using accessors for objects. As with the previous parts, this talk is licensed under the Public Domain/CC-Zero.
There are new factoids in the factoids collection:
Larry Wall can make shit up, and the computer will understand what he means.
There are also many new UNIX-like fortune cookies:

I have added a review of Kent Beck’s Test Driven Development: By Example to the recommended books page.
More prominent editors and IDEs were added to the editors and IDEs page.
And as usual, there are many additional links on various pages of the site.
