Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there!

The North American Perl conference is over. There are two reports already and some of the videos are already available. So if you missed some of the talks or if you could not even make it to Alexandria, VA, USA, then you can still watch the presentations.

In other news, I've extended the dead line for the Bailador book Crowdfunding campaign. While we have not reached the goal, I decided to write the book anyway. However it would be still nice to see more support. Both from individuals and from companies. So if you like to show your support do it now!
