"Modules should be compiled with -Wall and should compile cleanly. Warnings during compilations that are acceptable under x86 will often cause problems under AMD64 technology."

Python vs Parrot

In many ways, it seems like Python and Parrot are from different planets.


In Python, the general approach seems to be to reduce everything possible to a canonical form as early as possible, and then deal with everything consistently.


In Parrot, the general approach seems to be to leave everything in its original form as long as possible, and then deal with everything separately.


Long : Python vs Parrot

Testing PHP

"I guess this is my belated ApacheCon blog. I had a lot of fun as usual, and I got a chance to meet a few new people and hang out with old friends. The talk that Geoff and I gave went really well, and it ended up being as funny as we had hoped. More exciting than the talk is the project behind it. I think we've created the single best testing framework for PHP applications, and I'm going to try to describe it for those who missed the talk."
