This edition was made possible by the supporters of our cause.
Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there!

As it is my turn to edit the Perl Weekly let me remind you that the last day of the extended Bailador Crowdfunding campaign is 3 days from now. No more extensions as Indiegogo only allows one.

I am sure you are happy that it is over.

But don't get your hopes high! I won't stop talking about Bailador as it is getting better by the day and I have a mission. We will build some awesome applications using it and I'll write about those as well.

You will want to buy the book and you will feel sad that you missed the opportunity supporting the book earlier. Don't do that to yourself!

Support the book now!

... and have a good week!
