Hi there!

It is still not too late. The Baltimore Perl Workshop is next Saturday. You can still decide to join!

I love the new Perl Weekly Challenge. It got so many people post their solutions on various blogging sites. Keep going!

And a call to the authors who get included in this newsletter. Please look at the archive of the Perl Weekly. In each edition next to each entry there is a picture of the author and a link to their home page. Is it missing for you? Would you like to update it? Everything can be found in the GitHub repo. Send me Pull-requests if you'd like to update something.

Enjoy your week!
