Hi there

Sorry for the late issue. As far as I know Mohammad is on his way back from vacation and I enjoyed a fun day at the dentist and now all I can eat is ice-cream. As Mohammad seems to take vacation seriously, even the Weekly Challenge report is missing this time. Anyway.

The 24 episode long blog series of Liz came to an end, and with that she said Goodbye to Perl. I remember meeting her first time some 20 years ago at a Perl conference. She was always very nice. Good luck with your work on Raku!

I am also glad Thomas Klausner went to the Koha-conf as we now have a nice, green and yellow report about it.

Enjoy your week!

Things I learned at PerlKohaCon 2023

by Thomas Klausner (DOMM)

This was the first time we had a combined European Perl Conference and KohaCon. For those that don't know Koha (which is unfortunately true for a lot of Perl devs), it's a fully featured, scalable & open source library management system written in Perl.
