Don't miss the next issue!

The highlight of the recently concluded "Conference in the Cloud" is the announcement of "Perl 7" by Sawyer X. It is the best news that I have come across recently. Personally, I think it would help all Perl devs cheer up and something nice to talk about. It would be great if Cor makes it to "Perl 7" in time. I am very excited about "Perl 7" and looking forward to it.

With the announcement of Perl 7, came another announcement by brian d foy about his latest book "Preparing for Perl 7". I had the pleasure to read it first hand and I must confess that it is the best introduction to Perl 7. Thanks brian d foy.

I attended the "Conference in the Cloud" and I had mix feeling. There was time, I was very excited and there was time, I was not so excited. Overall, I would say it was a successfull online event with all the limitations. Having said it, I still prefer face-2-face conference. I hope and wish we get one soon. Happy to hear the announcement of German Perl Workshop 2021. I am keeping my fingers crossed for more such announcement.

Enjoy reading the rest of the newsletter.

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Greenery and Go-Karts and Golf, Oh My! Perl job in Malaysia

There are plenty of perks to living in a big city—the nightlife, tons of amenities, and transportation to get you from A to B—but big cities often mean concrete jungles without much green space. Not so in Cyberjaya; this tech-driven city has a huge park, and it’s situated right next to Putrajaya, which has parks, wetlands, and botanical gardens for all your greenspace needs.

Shopping, Skating, and Swimming – Is This Even Work? Perl developer in Dubai

You can work anywhere in the world, so why not work somewhere world-class? Where better to spend your days (and nights) than a rapidly growing city known for having the planet’s only 7-star hotel, the tallest building in the world, and a shopping mall to put all other malls to shame. Did we mention it’s beautiful all the time? Sun, sand, stunning blue water and you!

Why working as a Perl developer in Vienna is going to change your life

For many of our developers, 2020’s also been an exceptionally uncertain year. Lay-offs, furloughs, comapnies implementing strict cost-cutting measures. Wouldn’t it be nice to work for a company that’s actually been _growing_ during lockdown? Our client’s in a buouyant position, and they’re looking for someone like you to come and join them.

Goodbye, Winter Blues. Hello, 300 Days of Perl Sunshine! Perl developer job in Malta

Imagine a place known for its stunning Mediterranean coastline, famous for its festivals, and so welcoming that locals are often called “some of the nicest people in the world.” Now imagine that you can trade your current home base for one that’s chock-a-block with history, incredible cuisine, and postcard-worthy views around every corner.
