Damian Conway weighs in on new features, best practices and Perl’s future

Damian Conway is a prominent member of the Perl community, author and presenter.

Key points from the full video of our recent interview include:

  • Perl 6 might not be here yet but it is seeping into Perl 5. [Discussed at the 1:09 mark]
  • You really should use a more current version of Perl — one reason — Regular Expressions. [Discussed at the 1:48 mark]
  • Moose — making object orientation easier. [Discussed at the 2:38 mark]
  • Best Practice — Test! Test! Test! [Discussed at the 6:08 mark]
  • The Perl Community — 25 years old and still optimizing the fastest dynamic language out there. [Discussed at the 9:42 mark]

You can view the entire interview in the following video.

TERRA 434: Yellowstone's Wildlife Highway PREVIEW

Jonesing for spectacular nature photography? You got it! The Madison Valley, just north of Yellowstone, is a richly diverse ecosystem where just about every big-game species in Montana can be found. Grizzly and black bears, wolverines, elk, deer, moose, and pronghorns all use the Valley for seasonal migration, food, and breeding. However, development and the resulting fragmentation of large, interconnected ranges put this habitat at risk for the animals, especially wolverines, which are particularly intolerant of human activity and require vast ranges for their survival. K.C. Breen shows us how human encroachment in the Valley is being mitigated for wildlife's sake in "Yellowstone's Wildlife Highway: Promoting Connectivity in the Madison Valley".
