I've built my career around helping people make Perl useful, no matter what they are doing or how they are doing it. I write books and blogs, teach classes, and sometimes take on worthy and interesting consulting situations. I spend most of my time thinking about Perl so you don't have to. I think the best technological solution is the one with the fewest moving parts. If you can solve your problem without any computer programming, so much the better. Specialties: Perl

Freelance Book Author
Joshua McAdams and I updated Joseph Hall's Effective Perl Programming. Although we added quite a bit of new content, we did everything we could to maintain the style and spirit of Joseph's original work. Even before my involvement with the second edition, I regarded Joseph's book as one of the best Perl books ever conceived.
