Hi there

I have been following very closely the progress of Cor. Well, if you don't know what I am talking about? It is a project that Curtis Poe, Steven Little and Sawyer working on to create an object model for the Perl core. If you are interested to know more about the project then follow the page.

A friend of mine, Andrew Solomon (Geekuni), couple of days ago tweeted about an interesting Survey: which CPAN modules should all Perl developers know? Please do take part in the survey if you fancy.

Have fun rest of the week.

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

A New Way to Work. Perl Job in London

Our client is looking for a senior-level Perl programmer who believes in innovation. They are one of the UK’s leading estate agencies with over 60 branches and a spectacular web presence that puts others to shame. Leave behind the offices of old and get ready for a tiered lake, decked boardwalk, pathways, events space, and an on-site Virgin Active gym.

One is the Loneliest Number

For nearly 16 years, our client has been helping people in the UK and the US find their perfect flatmate. Think of all the things that are better with two: seesaws, tandem bicycles, the tango, splitting the bills—need we go on? If you’re a Perl software developer, and you agree that two heads are better than one, then this might be the role for you.
