How to impress your coworkers, or playing Perl in a team
For years the motto of Perl was TIMTOWTDI, and as a consequence it gained the fame of very flexible language, or even too flexible.
YAPC::EU 2009 brought us the second part of TIMTOWTDI phrase - the BSCINABTE (Bicarbonate). Do we need it? Why we need it? How to tame the ego and bend the mind to a specific style? Is it worthy? And how to impress the coworkers?
Almost year ago I joined the Perl based company, where I had (and still have) a lot of opportunities to ask those questions and sometimes even find some answers. Here I would like to share those experiences, and talk about coding style, comments and documentation, functional programming for mortals - and show some real-code examples.
