Perl Teasing Challenge
In response to my question Tudor Constantin wrote down how he would go about introducing Perl in just a few hours. He takes the promotional aspect while I am not sure that is what *my* clients want to hear. Nevertheless he has a few interesting points in how to talk about Perl.

The cost of technical debt: 3.61$ / line of code
Tudor Constantin found a research that puts some quantitative measures to the cost of 'technical debt'. I am not sure what the conclusion of this should be. Throwing away the old and partially broken code? Adding automatic tests to the existing application? Nothing? After all we would like to avoid paying that debt.

What Testing DSLs Get Wrong
chromatic tells us that he has never been a fan of Behavior Driven Development. He gives his usual, strong opinion about Ruby's Cucumber. This is especially interesting in contrast to the previous article by Tudor Constantin. Personally I have never made use of BDD and I don't know if - as some of its proponents say - it really works. I think, the good old Fit approach can work well.

Behavior Driven Development in Perl
Tudor Constantin is trying to start testing and has been learning about BDD. You will find a number of links here to explanations and slides that might help you evaluate the approach or even get started. I am very interested how this works out for you.

Repainting the Monastery
Do you use Perl Monks? What do you think about the look-and feel? Is this something you would be happy to use to show how nice and modern is Perl? Tudor Constantin thought otherwise and came up a new design based on Twitter Bootstrap. I am not sure it will make a difference, but I think it would be good to repaint the Monastery.

PRForge.com for promoting Perl
Tudor Constantin has created a tool that can automate the cross-promotion of articles. On one hand I think it would be very important to 'like' and 're-share' more Perl-related posts, on the other hand I am not sure automating this is a good idea. I am certainly interested in seeing how this works out and I'd be interested in reading your opinion about this. So check out the article, sign up to the service and let us know what do you think? If not this, then what will make it easy for you to 'like' and 're-share' more Perl-related articles?

Facebook Authentication in Perl with Mojolicious (Lite)
Authentication is one of those complex interaction things that are almost guaranteed to make our heads swim. Fortunately, most web frameworks have helpful plugins to abstract most of the headache away. Here, Tudor Constantin shows us how to deal with Facebook authentication within Mojolicious.

Perl Already Won
An impassioned support of Perl from Tudor, in response to the Why Perl Didn't Win post from August last year. Tudor explains why Perl works for him. And that's what it comes down to I think: we're all wired differently, and some programming languages match our wiring better than others. YMMV.

Shock and Terror - Perl IS a readable language
Another love-letter to Perl from Tudor, following his previous Perl Already Won.
