Don't miss the next issue!


I just had a meeting with a company in the UK that were looking for some consulting in Perl. After our conversation I felt that what they are interested in is not really where my expertise is, so I referred them to two other people who have a lot more experience in those areas. However I realized I don't know who is providing consulting or development service these days. So let me know. Who knows next time I might be able to refer the clients to you.

On the other hand I just found out that my client, where I do some refactoring on a web-application with some machine-learning backend (written in Python). is likely to move the project to their parent company. This probably means I'll be free for other projects to introduce test automation, CI, and refactoring code.

Enjoy your week!
