Issue #344 - 2018-02-26 - Lost in the cloud

Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there,

this is a bit mixed edition. Ruth collected the articles, but I (Gabor) decided on the title and I am writing this intro as well.

I also must apologize for the delay in sending out this edition, but I was on a flight from Sofia to Tel Aviv and apparently due to a 'navigation error' we first flew over Belgrade and then landed in Budapest. Then it took 2 hours to get on another plane and 3 more hours to arrive in Tel Aviv. Basically the pilot on the first plane got lost in the cloud.

I think I should look for some cloud and Perl-related articles...

Anyway, enjoy your week!

Updating the free Perl Maven tutorial

by Gabor Szabo (SZABGAB)

Last week I launched a new crowdfunding campaign to provide me with some time and encouragement to update the Perl Maven Tutorial. It had a very good start, but I'll need a lot more people to support it. If for nothing else, to see that you think it is valuable to you or to the Perl community in general. ~ Gabor
