Observant readers looking at the dateline on the left will have noticed a gap of nearly two years between my last blog and today. As a fascinated programming hobbyist, I have only limited time in the day to devote to coding – and a startup venture put the brakes on anything but the day job for a while.
In the meantime, I have had to choose between coding and blogging – and while the ideas have been flowing ahead, I am quite keen on the idea that ‘actions speak louder than words’.
The actions have covered:
- learning baby perl6 (highly recommend Think Perl6 by Laurent Rosenfeld)
- learning perl6 OO
- learning perl6 Grammars
- learning about Unit systems
- writing Physics::Measure v0.0.1
- figuring out the point of it all
- writing and publishing Math::Polygons
- asking a bunch of questions under the perl6 tag on Stack Overflow
- learning a bit more about perl6
- writing and publishing Physics::Measure v0.0.2 (~2k lines)
So, today, I am delighted to announce the alpha release of Physics::Measure (try zef install https://github.com/p6steve/perl6-Physics-Measure.firstname.lastname@example.org for now – hopefully zef install Physics::Measure within a day or two).
Hopefully the synopsis at https://github.com/p6steve/perl6-Physics-Measure makes sense. I encourage all feedback with an open mind…
Now back to the blogging!
