01:40 mohawk jberger, congrats on the job!
01:40 mohawk surprised you're getting paid for perl, though
01:41 mohawk thought perl was dead ;-)
01:43 mohawk chm, glad you like Alien::Base work
01:43 mohawk if you would like assistance with the pdl stuff let me know
03:08 pdurbin jberger: I linked a friend to our chat about going from Python to Perl: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2014-11-17 :)
03:24 jberger pdurbin: nice
03:28 pdurbin jberger: part of his epic rant: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2012-05-04#i_5540469 :)
03:36 jberger I see some familiar themes
03:36 jberger ironcamellets keep it technical. python's lack of anonymous functions, lack of variable scope, and broken support for closures make it not suited for programming in the functional paradigm
03:45 jberger pdurbin: the way I argue for timtowtdi is this
03:46 jberger when you design a language such that there is usually only one way to do something, sometimes there isn't a way to do the thing you need
03:47 jberger when you allow lots of ways to do anything, there will usually be at least one way for anything
03:51 * pdurbin can't argue with that
15:05 vicash jberger: when you design a language such that there is usually only one way to do something <<< Domain specific language :)
