Hi there

Recently someone shared the link to GitHub repository that holds virtually every possible online Perl resources. I was pleasantly surprised to see Perl Weekly Challenge listed as "Friendly Coding Competition". I am sure you will find the list very useful.

Curtis, shared open questions related to the Cor. Please do check out if you are interested in Cor.

Have you ever wonder how to estimate the level of your Perl mastery? Now you don't need to look anywhere, you can find the answer here. Please treat it as fun.

Last but not the least, stay home and stay safe. Enjoy reading the rest of the newsletter.
