Don't miss the next issue!

Hello there!

This week was surprisingly calm, and looking at this thread I am really happy that many people have voted down the poisonous comments made by 1nickt and several people took their time to respond.

Unfortunately the down-votes are only visible to people who are logged in an who have cast their votes.

I wish more people expressed their feeling that this kind of poisonous rhetoric, and baseless accusations are not acceptable in the Perl community.

Other than that, enjoy your week :)

Two Things that Make Developers Happy - Mid-to-Senior Perl Developer in London

Not everyone's like me. Perhaps nobody's like me. But when it comes to enjoying programming jobs, and particularly when it comes to enjoying Perl programming jobs, there are two things that are needed to make me happy that I suspect resonate with most other career developers.
