About the Book

Markua is Markdown-inspired format created by Peter Armstrong to write books. It is used by LeanPub, the company where this book is published. Heck, even this book is written using the Markua format.

LeanPub has its own Markua parser written in Ruby.

This book follows the development of a Markua parser written in Perl.

As a reader of this book you will learn how to develop an application using TDD - Test Driven Development. That is, before every change we are going to create a test-case.

You will see how to set up Continuous Integration (CI) and how to monitor the test coverage.

As every development process it won't be without mistakes and setback. We will certainly see bugs being introduced and then fixed. Imperfect code written and then refactored.

In a nutshell, you will be able to see first-hand many of the best practices of today's development process.
