Hi there

Finally it is time to say Good Bye 2018 and welcome year 2019. Also it is time to make your new year resolutions. Have you? Personally for me, the year 2018 has been the best year professionally. Please do share your experiences.

Last but not the least, this is the 17th issue of Perl Weekly newsletter that I have prepared in the year 2018 ever since I joined the panel of Elite Editors in May 2018. I would like to thank each and every reader for the support and encouragement, specially Gabor Szabo, the Chief Editor.

Wish you a very Happy New Year 2019, from the team of Perl Weekly newsletter. May all your wishes come true, Ameen.
