Hi all!

The slow, but constant decline in the popularity of Perl has claimed another victim. YEF, the YAPC::Europe Foundation is shutting down for good.

Let me use this sad opportunity to thank all the people who put countless hours, energy, and ocassionally even money to make it easier for other volunteers to create Perl conference in Europe. I particiapted in a number of very good events, where I gained a lot of knowledge and made some good friends. Thank you domm, and all the others for your hard work and dedication!

On a brighter note, we have a new week to enjoy, including the German Perl Workshop.

How do you look in a fig leaf?

You’re on the way to work. Maybe you drag your feet a little. Lately, you just haven’t been feeling it. Should you find another Perl gig? If only there was a sign . . . then you see a snake dangling from a tree. A little green fellow with a twinkle in his eye. He gives you a wink and tells you about a company that sounds so good, it might be Heaven.

And the Award for Best Flatmate Goes to . . .

If you’re a Perl software developer who has experience with other languages like Gearman, Memcached, Sphinx, and MySQL, and you hope to help others find the flatmate of their dreams, then this role is calling to you.
