Perl development journey and books collection

While doing routine cleaning of my personal library I was surprised to see the Perl book collection I have made over the period of time. My Perl dev journey started in a full-fledged manner way back in fall 2007. Prior to that was mainly developing using C, C++, assembly language. My first impression with Perl was not very exciting mainly due to ugly syntax and the way the OO is achieved and being from C++ background initially it was really difficult to grasp. But over the years working with language and while developing a large scale web application I learned a lot of nitty-gritty of the language and still learning…  Today I can vouch for Perl for its speed, portability, great module system CPAN and excellent dedicated community. Thanks to all the module authors and contributors on Perl Monks and StackOverflow. You guys are amazing! 
Now, the books which helped me immensely to wrote better Perl programs.

New coder and Experienced coders

I’ve found that a big difference between new coders and experienced coders is faith: faith that things are going wrong for a logical and discoverable reason, faith that problems are fixable, faith that there is a way to accomplish the goal. The path from “not working” to “working” might not be obvious, but with patience, you can usually find it.

Read the above quote somewhere on medium, myself as a programmer can easily sync with the saying. Have observed this many many times in my coding experience of the last two decades. To add, patience is needed much more while dealing with critical real-time production bugs.

I personally feel that analysis of the problem with a cool head and focus and pateince is is the key to debug and resolve critical problems.

Happy Coding!
