The Defectives

brian d foy has been screwing up Perl since the early 90s. Some say that he couldn’t possibly discover any new ways to screw up, but he’s constantly surprising everyone. C’mon, the guy can barely type and nobody uses his CPAN modules, which is why he keeps inventing new ones trying to get it right. They say that those who know how to do do, and those who don’t just teach it. Well, brian’s been teaching a heck of a lot of Perl.

Joshua McAdams only pretends to write Perl because he’s really a Java programmer. Sure, he impressed a lot of people by organizing a couple of conferences and showing off his southern accent in Perlcast, but have you really ever seen him write a Perl program? Yeah, us neither.
