Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): But Wait! There's More! Extendable DRY API Code
The previous post wasn't built in a vacuum.

Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Filling a Dispatch Table For Ease of Development and DRY
I hate magic.

Don't get me wrong. If the night's entertainment is going to see Penn & Teller, I'll enjoy myself like anyone else, but when I have to work with it, I hate magic.

Today, I released the MongoDB Perl Driver v1.0.0 RC3 to CPAN as MongoDB-v0.999.999.6-TRIAL. It has only a handful of small changes, so might be your last chance to test a release candidate before a stable release is shipped. I've blogged about RC1 an [...]

fREW Schmidt (fREW): The Chains of Get-It-Done

It’s 2AM. My wife and infant son are in bed. He’s teething so most of the interaction I have with her involves yelling over him and tense enjoyment of brief respites gifted by small cold things.

I’m awake for two reasons.

The first is that I enjoy the [...]
