Hi there

you might recall I write about Perl on the Perl Maven site and about everything else on the Code Maven site. In order to serve you better I'd like to know what are the 3 most important languages to you? So I have a one-question survey asking just that. I'd be happy if you filled it out and as a thank-you note if you fill it out you'll get a coupon to buy my Git eBook at a very deep discount.

Oh and there are plenty of good articles in this newsletter :)

Enjoy your week!

Automated testing on Windows with AppVeyor

AppVeyor is cloud-based Continuous Integration service running on MS Windows. You can easily hook up your CPAN module or other Perl-based application to test it on Windows. A Lot less excuses for not supporting Windows.

Cygwin interesting problems

by Ben Bullock (BKB)

Cygwin is a special source of Yak Shaving with all kinds of questions one need to answer. I wonder, could AppVeyor be used to test CPAN modules on Cygwin?
