Confessions of an Accidental Programmer

Confessions of an Accidental Programmer. O'Reilly: Confessions of an Accidental Programmer “Deciding that it was better to light a candle than curse the darkness, in 1998 I created a novice-level tutorial called The Beginners Guide to CGI Scripting with Perl. The response was gratifying; the site seemed to strike a chord with other accidental programmers, who sent me lots of email asking for more. Emboldened by that, I approached my favorite technical book publisher and pitched them on the idea of a book for accidental programmers, one that explained how to use Perl to create and maintain Web sites. To my surprise, they said yes.” [QubeQuorner]
