Hi There!

As the newsletter goes out to more than 4,000 people I often get back vacation notifications. Most of them are in English, but there are a few that are in some other language. I assume the local language of where that person works. A few of them are both in English and in the local language. Usually a language that I don't fully understand. I can guess and I can use an automated translator, but it seems it would make sense for these messages to include an English version as well.

Apparently we missed the announcement of the Perl Toolchain Summit. In 2024 it will be in Lisbon, Portugal, from Wednesday April 25 to Sunday April 28. They are looking for sponsors.

Enjoy your week!

Use of map and grep together can be lethal and produce compact solution. Keep it up great work.
