Hi there,

You might know the Perl Tutorial on the Perl Maven site I've written during the past 6 years.

It needs some updating and I'd like to get some funding. Instead of asking for a TPF grant, I'd prefer to get you support me directly.

So I launched a crowd funding campaign. Please support it!

Enjoy your week!
