Why Moose is right and you are wrong

Saturday, 15 May 2010

If I were starting a new job and I got dumped into a code base which was in-house but otherwise functionally identical in every way to Moose — in other words, the code was useful and deep and well done and really generally a work of elegance and genius, I would be muttering, what a bunch of fucking assholes, under my breath as I tried to write code to fit in with it. Why?

Because you are now in a situation wherein the code almost certainly lacks tests, documentation, community, examples, and knowledge transfer.

You could be the best Perl hacker who ever put path to shebang but if you dig in with your own style, insulated, without docs and tests and sharing, you are the devil.
