Software development is hard. No matter what the end product, many of the same stumbling blocks come up time and again and get in the way of project success. Some classic pitfalls include time restraints, insufficient in-house resources, scope creep, and spiraling development costs. So how do software developers minimize these obstacles and improve their chances for better, faster, more cost-effective software development?

ActivePerl of course!

We have just published a new white paper, Epic Fail: Improving Software Development Success with ActivePerl. In this paper, we present the open source Perl programming language as a solution for avoiding typical software development foibles.

Download and read the white paper.

I'm not a perl programmer (Natively i write PHP and VB/C#) but the idea sounds plausible for other platforms (if you ignore the A/S propaganda, if i can use that term, for ActivePerl.)
