DevOps in Perl? Consider Rex.

Rex is a ‘Deployment & Configuration Management’ also knows as DevOps framework. Interestingly, it is in Perl, for Perl language. There is Ruby’s Chef & Puppet, Python’s Ansible, and Perl also has those frameworks too, but here I’m pointing to Rex because it will be much more familiar to Puppet, Chef and Ansible users in syntax and workflow perspectives.

Why do this in Perl?

Perl itself has been designed and well known for its powerful features on sysadmin tasks. Combine with this kind of framework, you are just gonna be much happier on getting the job done. Fortunately, if you are trying to opt to write ‘maintainable and long-term modules/scripts’ without using Rex, Modern Perl as a guideline should help you doing so, and CPAN with much lesser code in general.



Learning to Code

Coder Wong

After a month studying programming for 8-12hrs per day. My mind finally gave in the last 2 days. I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Couldn’t think properly and had to reset. Currently learning JavaScript and it’s a pain in the ass but I will never give up! Now, I am revitalised  and back at it again!

Currently following Javascript Is Sexy site.

Happy Easter Everybody!

We are not defeated by adversity but by the loss of the will to strive. However devastated you may feel, so long as you have the will to fight on, you can surely triumph.

So I started, finally, to work on some QKD (Quantum Key Distribution). IBM recently released a python API to their 5 qubit quantum computer. I’ve been playing around with it and found it pretty easy to use. I have only managed to entangle a couple qubits and teleport them, but gotta start somewhere. Anyway, I […]

Making games with Ruby and Gosu library.

Preface As a part of learning the Ruby programming language, while I continue the development of my Rails app (which I might go through in another series of posts), I thought it would neat to port my flagship computer game: Tokoton Shooter, which is a 2D, vertical shooter game that I created a long time […]
