Hi there

First thing first, I hope and wish you are all safe and healthy. Please follow the instructions of local goverment.

As COVID-19 is still troubling us in our daily life, I came across an annoucement by Neil Bowers confirming that The Perl Toolchain Summit (PTS) 2020 won't be happening this year.

Another change COVID-19 made to our daily life is that most of us started working from home now a days. It has some pros/cons, depends how you take it. Please do share with us, how you are dealing with changes that COVID-19 forced in your life.

Last but not the least, look after yourself and your family whilst enjoy reading the newsletter.
