Getting to the root of Perl's perception problems

The interest in improving the perception of Perl is increasing every day (much to my surprise!). From Matt S Trout's initiative to feed patches back to the maintainers of perl.org to Jon Allen's TPF grant application to Improve the visual design of Perl websites, to Gábor Szabó's Measurable objectives for the Perl ecosystem, each step builds on the next.…

Is the Perl community schizophrenic?

Recently, I've been reading with great interest about the future of Perl, and -- more specifically -- about how the outside sees Perl and how Perl might need a director of marketing. Frankly, and at the risk of rocking the boat, I'll propose that Perl needs more than just a marketing director, or someone on the outside to do a survey; Put simply: Perl needs a creative agitator. (Or, perhaps more appropriately, a creative benevolent dictator.…

Prettier Perl Web sites: Three arguments and three ideas

In doing a bit of background reading for this post, I stumbled on Sebastian Riedel's Perl Monk post from 2008 titled Prettier Perl websites. The discussion on that post is a fun read, as it highlights the polarization in the Perl community around Perl's (rather lousy) public image…

Prettier Perl Web sites: Three arguments and three ideas

In doing a bit of background reading for this post, I stumbled on Sebastian Riedel's Perl Monk post from 2008 titled Prettier Perl websites. The discussion on that post is a fun read, as it highlights the polarization in the Perl community around Perl's (rather lousy) public image. This comment says it all: One thing I always liked to say about Perl-based services/sites, is that they, like Perl (and the Camel) are Ugly, but efficient.…

Perl in your city

Over the years, I've been involved with a fair number of Bricolage implementations for different organizations. (For those that don't know, Bricolage is a large, Perl-based, publishing system.) Many of these organizations don't have a full-time Perl programmer on staff, and instead rely on external contracts to do the heavy lifting that comes up from time-to-time.…

Uncovering the true "face" of Perl

Following on the last post about Prettier Perl Web sites and taking Sebastian Riedel's Don’t explain what you think would look better, just make a mockup and show us! challenge to heart, I spent some time looking at Perl's existing design patterns. Specifically, I wanted to take a closer look at two established Perl brands and to expose the underlying elements of their design consistency; the typography, colours, and so on. The two I chose -- because they look like they were developed by…
