Nice, as usual. I'd add that it's not just especially beneficial for new hires. Every shop I've worked, the difference in skills between the top cats and the others was nearly exponential. Not just new hires but guys who were supposed to be experts and had been doing it for a decade or more. The Perl hacker at Amazon I learned the most from was a self-taught guy but he just knew the stuff better than all the rest of us. I think he was embarrassed he didn't have a CS degree too; all the while answering Perl and hardware questions from all the rest of us.

Code review is also a great way to set aside the opinions for the practice. It's easy to say XYZ is how we should do it because someone read a whitepaper but when someone else whips up some ABC instead and shows you how it fits in your app/code-base perfectly it's hard to keep saying, "but, but Sun says XYZ will save us from werewolves... "

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
