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.…

Promoting projects that are written in Perl

I got a great e-mail from Gabor earlier this week that proposed a simple challenge: Let's not get distracted trying to promote Perl itself, but -- instead -- let's focus on promoting projects written in Perl.

Gabor's note -- which asked about the status of the project -- makes me wonder why more folks in the Perl community aren't taking a closer look…

Demo: The Perl ecosystem toolbar

This isn't really a post. But, after a bit of a funny back-and-forth with Adam Kennedy, I thought it would be fun to throw together an example of what a persistent Perl ecosystem toolbar might look like in reality. So, here's a quick demo.…

Perceptions of Perl

Given the active conversation unfolding around the perceptions of Perl, I wanted to follow-up with what was originally part of my previous post on the Perl community's multiple personality problem. Though I feel strongly that the Perl community's online visual identity (or lack of one) poses unnecessary friction or drag when trying to appeal to potential adopters, there are also some very positive currents in the Perl community to highlight. .…

Bricolage: Localhostin' it and other news

I've had my head down in a large Bricolage CMS project over the last few weeks (well, that and some packing), so it was time that I came up for some air and some technical blogging. First exciting bit of news to report is David Wheeler's announcement about the released of Bricolage 1.11.…
