This edition was made possible by the supporters of our cause.
Don't miss the next issue!

As I see it is getting harder and harder to fill the Perl Weekly newsletter with content.

If it wasn't for the Perl Weekly Challange initiative of Mohammad Anwar we would have a very thin edition. Luckily it started to provide us many great posts. I hope he or some other people will find a way to further enhance the idea and to create even more interesting posts. I also hope that other people will join and provide other solutions.

Enjoy your week

We don't need no stinkin' hosting

by brian d foy (BDFOY)

Andrew Shitov asked for 10,000 USD to 'Create a complete course of the Perl 6 programming language.' In a close vote it was rejected, partially due to the lack of specifics about deployment and hosting options. brian d foy that the hosting question should not be important as the expense is negliable. I tend to agee. One could run a decent system on a 5-10 USD/month box on Digital Ocean that would probably server the Perl 6 users if their number 10 and probably even 100 times more than the current number. If that happens I am sure there will be individuals or companies who will be happy to pay the bill. On the other hand I think the plan for deployment should be part of the grant and the system needs to be deployed from day 1.

Perl Dancer examples

by Gabor Szabo (SZABGAB)

While for new project you should use Dancer 2 I am currently dealing with an application that is in Dancer 1 so I wrote a couple of examples. I was especially interested writing examples on how to test a web application written in Dancer as having tests allows us to move faster and it allows us to switch to Dancer 2 withot the fear of breaking the system and noticing only after deployment.
