Hi there

After the marathon of Pull Request, Hacktoberfest Challenge is finally over. Those who managed to submit 5 or more Pull Request, congratulations. For those who missed it, don't be sad, try again next year. If you need any assistance, please get in touch with me. So what after Hacktoberfest? If you are into Pull Request, like me, then you wouldn't want to miss 24 Pull Request Challenge coming up in the month of December. The rule is simple, you have to submit at least 1 PR per day for the first 24 days of December. Please visit here for more information.

Recently there was a call for Authors for Perl 6 Advent Calendar 2018. Please more about it in this blog.
