> Damian is a brilliant author

Agreed. Always a joy to read! (ditto for chromatic and brian_d_foy).

Unlike chromatic though, I often struggle to find free stuff from The Damian that I can link to here (I often find myself linking to Ten Essential Development Practices). If you know of other useful online stuff written by Damian, please let us know.

    No sorry, I don't.

    I'm only aware of three books, ("Perl Hacks" was also co-authored by him)

    There are slides from merlyn covering PBP online...

    I think the summary table at the appendix of PBP are available somewhere, since they influenced Perl Critic.

    update

    I think citing from an appendix of a PDF version is still fair use, as long as you make the source clear.

      I'd always assumed so. I've regularly cited Perl Best Practices (pdf) ... as I did only last month, while issuing dazz a yellow card for repeated whinging about Perl's unfortunate Switch statement. If that's not fair use, I apologize ... though I certainly don't relish having to edit all my old nodes. :)

      I suppose Perlish alternatives to a Switch statement is yet another candidate topic for your course.

        IIRC does Python have no switch statement so we are kind of "safe" here ... ;-)
