"Small daily improvements over time create stunning results." Robin Sharma
First had the idea to start writing a blog at the end of 2004. I've always been a great content consumer, mostly from technical websites and blogs, but the fear that i'd have nothing to contribute stopped me from having my own blog.
Over the years i took notes of technical problems i came across and i adopted new technologies, of which i'm about to write in this blog. Some of these technologies, that i've recently used in my projects, are:
- Modern Perl: perl-5.12 and perl-5.14, cpanminus and perlbrew, staticperl, Moose, DBIx::Class, Mojolicious, Plack
- GIT and github
- HTML 5, CSS 3, jQuery, JSON and Firefox 4 (with the Prism add-on)
- Debian 6 and CentOS 5.6
- Gimp 2.7 (dev) and Inkscape 0.48 (dev)
Recently i started contributing to Perl modules on CPAN and i was involved in the creation of the #perl-ro IRC channel on Freenode. One of the main reasons for this blog is the popularization of Perl in the web media in Romania; Perl is used by many romanian programmers but there is no local community.
From a technical view, this blog has been created using Template Toolkit templates and some scripts for generating the static content. I'm planning to create a blog platform using Mojolicious; i will write about it's progress in this blog.
