    The awesomeness that is `git bisect`

    Ian Stuart / December 17, 2018
  • So you've been working away on some code, and it works great. You then rebase on master, and it breaks.

    aarrgghhhh!!!! Steam-from-the-ears!!! pulling-of-hair!!!

    Until now, I'd either be checkoing out one branch at a time & testing, or doing some kind of cherry-picking into a new branch - either way, it's a pain keeping track of what's working & what's not.

    Perl Pre-conference tutorial: Intro to Perl 6

    Ian Stuart / August 15, 2018
  • Perl conference, 14th-17th August, Glasgow.

    Perl 5 & Perl 6 are essentially the same language. Yes, there are some differences (using `.` rather than `->` for object references for example, however 95% of what your "perl-head" will still be valid)

    A lot of the `Moose` stuff from perl 5 is actually Perl 6 concepts & constructs back-ported...

    Fully Stacked

    Ian Stuart / August 10, 2018
  • When I started in this game, and I freely admit that was last century, "Full Stack" meant web servers and LAMP, and LAMP stood for Linux, Apache, Mysql, and PHP (or maybe Python).

    Now, to be fair, that misses CSS... but the point is still that "Full Stack" was pretty simple.

    Don't get me wrong - this "full stack" is still around & valid: your Joomla comemrce-site and your Wordpress Blogg, with their fancy front-ends & bespoke plugins is still essentially LAMP.
