Hi there

In the last week edition of Perl Weekly newsletter, the Editor-in-Chief Gabor Szabo mentioned about the fun project I am currently working on. I thought I should give an update with regard to the launch date. It is now planned to officially launch on 15th June 2020. It would also coincide with the Perl Weekly edition that I would prepare. The plan is to give the Perl community reason to be proud of. The bottom line is Perl is not going anywhere, it is going to stay and stay stronger. So please watch this space.

Talking about Perl, it would be nice to remind all of us about the "Cor", the project currently being worked on by the trio (Stevan Little, Sawyer X and Curtis Poe). It feels nice to see it is making good progress. Thanks to Curtis, we all get regular updates. The motto of this project is "Good enough" is not good enough. Please checkout the wiki page for more information.

Do you like watching YouTube videos? I do sometimes. Gabor has compiled cool collections of Perl related vidoes for us, called Perl on YouTube. Please go and watch the videos when you have free time. Also don't forget to like and follow the channels you like.

Enjoy reading the rest of the newsletter. Stay safe and stay indoor.

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Just Another Day Working in Perl Paradise

Do you ever look around the place you work and think, “It’s not bad, but what if I were on the Mediterranean? And what if there were piles of cool temples and ancient Roman ruins, and you could see the ruts carts made in the limestone over centuries of use?” Yeah—we all think that at one time or another, but now you have the chance to do something about it.

Adventure Awaits for one Lucky Perl Developer

Where can you go from sun-and-sand to ski-slopes-and-snow in under an hour? We’ll give you a hint: it’s the same place you’ll find incredible architecture, world-class shops, a diverse, friendly population, and your new, exciting job. That’s right—you’re headed to Dubai!

Why let Silicon Valley have all the Fun?

Sure, Silicon Valley is great. They’ve got some of the world’s largest tech companies and some pretty nice offices, but do you know what else they have? Mist. Fog. Chilly weather that seeps into your clothes and makes you wish for warm, sunny days that don’t leave you shivering. If you wish you could find a tech hub without the risk of hypothermia, why not consider the Silicon Valley of Malaysia.

Free lunch for a Perl developer in the world's most liveable city (Vienna!)

Very well-known and established e-commerce brand in beautiful Vienna, Austria looking for Perl developers, or experienced developers willing to learn Perl. German isn’t required, but would be a bonus, but an existing right to work in the EU is.
