A long time ago I did procedural programming in Pascal, Perl and PHP3, before moving on to some Visual C++ and Java. After several years in the wilderness (actually a project manager of technical projects) I am returning to coding things myself, to skill up and make sure I know the latest developments in patterns, anti-patterns and best practise generally.

I've been a big fan of Joel Spolsky's blog for many years and meeting him recently (in London, UK) encouraged me to become an active member of StackOverflow.

comment Exceptions from automongobackup, yet script completes
Great: thanks gWaldo! The maintainer of automonogbackup did respond saying s/he intends to update their script taking account of this 'bug'. But there are reasons to use either.
