Hi there

Last week belonged to German Perl/Raku Workshop - 2020. Luckily there were regular updates on Twitter. Did you notice the change in name? Raku has been added to make it explicit that Perl and Raku both get equal exposure. I am confident we would see flood of event reports by regulars soon.

How can I forget to mention that Curtis Poe who gave keynote presentation through video conferencing about Cor. Well if you don't know what is Cor, then please checkout earlier editiion of PerlWeekly newsletter

Last but not the least, COVID-19, these days everybody is talking about it. Curtis Poe wrote an interesting blog about Coronavirus Fake News. Stay safe and enjoy reading the newsletter
