Don't miss the next issue!

The Perl Conference in Amsterdam is just days away! When I last edited the Perl Weekly, I wasn't planning on going--but now I'm giving a keynote, alongside Larry Wall and Damian Conway.

I'll also be presenting about being a programming polyglot in a regular breakout session, and there are lots of other great sessions and trainings available to you in Amsterdam next week. See you there!
