Hi there

The biggest event of the year 2020 is coming short. If you haven't had chance to book your place the please do so. For more information about the ticket, please follow this link. It is going to be a mix of Perl and Raku topics. I am particular looking forward to Damian Conway talk as I have never attended his live talk.

With regard to the project I was supposed to launch today got delayed because of technical reason. But I am confident we would launch it with a bang in a couple of days time, apology for the delay. I am waiting for that moments anxiously.

Last week, I started doing YouTube video for "The Weekly Challenge" tasks. I had good laugh doing it as it was my first time doing anything like this. I had very encouraging response so far. I hope to continue as long as possible.

Last but not the least, maintain social distancing and stay safe. Enjoy the rest of the newsletter.

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Variety is the spice of life! Perl Developer role in Dubai!

Wanderlust. Itchy feet. Caught the travel bug. Does any of this sound like you? Not content with the status quo, you want to see the world. Explore the narrow alleys of the old city, barter for Baharat in one of the world’s largest spice markets, and spend weekends ankle-deep in the powdery white sand of Jumeirah Beach—all of this is in reach if you read on for your next big opportunity!

Not your ordinary town! Perl job in Malaysia!

The client is a financial company whose meteoric growth over the last twenty years means that they’re a solid investment for anyone looking to make a change in location for their career. They started with the idea that online trading should be available to all, and from there, they’ve built a company with multiple locations worldwide. This may be the perfect Perl opportunity for you.

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

The technical stack is a mix of Modern Perl and more traditional technologies – some parts of the product are written using Dancer, some mod_perl2. Postgres forms the major backend database, with some help from Elastic Search for search-engine components. In addition, you’ll be working with some very well-known Perl folk in a team committed to technical excellence.

We aren’t Mal-teasing—this is the Perl job you’ve been waiting for!

If you take this job, some might call you a thrill-seeker. Us? We’ll just call you smart, because who wouldn’t want to work in one of the world’s most beautiful places? A diving hotspot, ample hiking, cycling routes, and more kayaking opportunities than you can shake a paddle at, Malta has it all! And lucky for you, we have a client looking to hire for their Malta office!
