Patreon for Gabor

by Gabor Szabo (SZABGAB)

This was really added by Gabor: Patreon allows you to support a great author, a creator, or yours truly with a monthly patronage of 1, 2, 3, 5, 8... USD. My first goal is to get started with this. With your help I hope to reach it very soon so I can go on to the next goal that will be updating the whole Perl Maven tutorial.

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Rapid Growth in Perl - developers wanted for an expanding central London company

According the Guinness Book of World Records, the fastest growing plant is a species of bamboo, which grows at a rate of up to 91cm a day. The fastest growing economy in the world is currently Ethiopia, with a projected growth in GDP of over 8% this year. And although the record for fastest growing Perl team might not be recorded in the Guinness Book of records, our client is a strong contender.

Be a trailblazer in a time of growth - Full Stack Architect required for a rapidly expanding London company

If you’re currently a senior full stack developer looking to take on your next role as an architect then this is a great opportunity to do so in a company that is both ambitious and supportive. Increased job satisfaction is another perk, as their codebase is notably new and clean and the team are committed to using modern practices.

London's Trendiest Office Space - Lead and Mid-Level Perl Developer roles

I love working in a vibrant, modern space. If you’re going to spend all day at work, it might as well be somewhere you enjoy being, rather than a cubicle farm. This client has a workspace I’m actively jealous of!
