Hi there

Let me start by congratulating Mohammad Sajid Anwar, my fellow editor of the newsletters, for receiving the White Camel Award.

Mohammad, you certainly deserved it!

As it turns out the White Camel web site is still served from my GitHub Account. I updated it now adding the most recent recipients. I also updated the README in the repository. There are several TODO items. It would be really awesome if you could help me with the site. If you don't know how, then join me in the OSDC chat and we can discuss it there.

You might remember I used to teach a lot of Perl courses, but then unfortunately that market dried up. I did run a remote training course in 2020 about testing in Perl, but not much else. The pandemic also did not help much with training. Oh yeah, at the beginning of the year I ran an instance of the Open Source Development course with focus on Perl. The video recordings are here. However, I am starting to offer my corporate training courses again. It would be great to teach Perl again, but even if it is 'only', Git or GitHub it will be still fun.

Lastly for today: The Perl and Koha conference is going to place August 14-18, 2023, Helsinki, Finland. You still have a month to get there!

Enjoy the week!
