Don't miss the next issue!

It's not quite three weeks to the London Perl Workshop, a free-to-attend one-day conference with three tracks of talks and one of tutorials. If you're going, please (a) register on the website, and (b) favourite the talks you want to hear. This will help the organisers work out the schedule for the day.

The Perl 5 Core Maintenance fund is running low on money. If your company uses Perl, maybe you could encourage the right person to contribute to the fund.

YAPC::Russia happened this past weekend, but I haven't seen any blog posts about it yet. If you went, why not tell us what you thought, in a blog post?
