Stealing From the Experts: Look at Their Tests!

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

I don’t know why this didn’t come to me quicker, but I got some good advice on the Catalyst mailing list.  It boils down to “look at how other people do it”, which I usually think of.

What I’d never thought of before was to look at their test cases for ways to do it.

Both Tomas Doran and Peter Karman made good suggestions of places to look for things that would help with my authentication issue.

Cookies and Catalyst::Test

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

The other day, I asked a question over on the Catalyst mailing list which spurred on some discussion.  Some of that discussion showed up with an example of how to check for cookines on the result of a Catalyst::Test operation.

There seems to be a way to jigger it in, but adding some real support for it might be better. Others seemed to agree.

How?  What’s best?

Modern Perl and I

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

I’m working on several projects.  Lately, my language of choice has been Perl because it lets me get things done quickly and because I can usually depend on the CPAN to have tools to make it easier and more correct.

Along the way, I’ve tripped over some really smart people doing some amazing work to make Perl more modern and more usable.  They seem to be people with great ideas who didn’t want to wait for Perl 6 and went and did something.  That’ been great to find and I’m learning a ton of things.

Maybe it’s interesting to hear how a competent Perl programmer found these new things, and that’s what I’ll start with today.
