Event: #301 Part 2, Jan 28, 2011
Randal L. Schwartz, [@merlyn] a name to conjure with…
Some of us met Randal at Astricon 2009 and he’s been a part of VUC whenever he’s had the time. Randal’s an author, a narrator, a programmer and a fun guy to hang with. Somewhere in the call about lag, packet loss and latency, we took advantage of Randal’s visit to catch up with what he’s been up to. One of his recent activities was doing some narration work for StarShipSofa, an award-winning Sci-Fi (oh, sorry, “speculative fiction”?) podcast. Randal has written and co-written several books on Perl: Randal Schwartz’s Perls of Wisdom
, Learning Perl (4th Edition) Covers Perl 5.8, Learning Perl Objects, References, and Modules.
