Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there!

This has been brewing for some time now, but finally it boiled over: I am writing an eBook about Perl Dancer!

More specially I'd like to write a book, but I'd also like to make sure there is interest in the book and people trust me to deliver it.

So I am running a crowdfunding campaign to gauge the interest. Please support it!

Other than that, plenty of articles.

Advice for new speakers

by VM Brasseur

Plenty of good advice, even though she does not mention the conference aggregator I run. Anyway she asks: 'What if one of the audiences is an expert in this area.' that reminds me the first ever presentation I gave at a Perl conference was about the 'Game of Chomp' and in the 2nd row was sitting Larry Wall occasionally saying something. Once I survived that, I knew I can give presentations anywhere...
