Hi there

The year 2019 has been very kind to both Perl and Raku community. The hightlight, in my humble opinion, is the renaming of Perl6 to Raku. I hope and wish the new year will bring the two communities together. I have already seen the changes in the "Perl Weekly Challenge" where members started sharing solutions in Perl and Raku both these days.

It is my honour to present the last edition of the Perl Weekly newsletter of the year 2019. I hope you enjoy the newsletter.

Last but not the least, I wish you all a very happy new year 2020.

All in the Family - Perl developer in Central Manchester

The client is a family business for the modern age, 100% owned by the founders and directors. Their mission is to match flatmates to flatshares because after all, you can’t live at Mum’s forever. They’re looking for someone with a great attitude and a passion for collaboration—basically, someone who plays nice with the other kids and shares their toys.

Wanted: Junior Perl Developer Ready to Move Up from the Bunny Hill

The client helps charities fund raise online and manages online payment systems for landlords, so you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re contributing to the greater good. And if that’s not enough for you, did we mention the annual company ski trip AND the chance to work in the mountains near Lake Geneva for a week each year, all expenses paid? Giving back never felt so good!

In Search of a Few Good Rock Stars

This major firm is located in Houston, Texas, but don’t worry if you’re not a local. They have a top-rate relocation program because finding talent matters to them. And what do they do once they’ve found the celebrities of the programming world? They take care of them, that’s what!
