People of Perl: Josh McAdams

by Bit-Man

Do you know Josh McAdams ?? Surely you do, he's the talented brain behind the Perl Podcasts ( and one of a kind, who clearly has a special tactile sense about people communications, behavior and the community itself.

Enjoy !

Sure you do add the fine print that it is "for dynamic languages" but the Java virtual machine has been there and done that, it has almost 200 languages it supports including ruby, python and perl (
