Overview

Scott Adams Hello. My name is Scott Adams, and I'm an Agile software engineer utilizing Scrum best practices. I began programming in perl in 1999 when I was tasked with developing search engines for vertical markets. Since then, I've used perl for a variety of web based and non web based applications and can say truthfully that I've embraced the more "modern" programming methodologies available to developers today. You've read Modern Perl by chromatic right? ;-)

Test Driven Development is something I resisted at first, because I couldn't see the value. However, after working on a large code base with many engineers, the benefits of TDD are obvious.

My thoughts on Moose? Catalyst? jQuery? Wijmo? Node.js? Great tools! And if they're the right tools for the job then you should use them. Quite frankly, I find myself using each of these tools more and more each day.
