Hi there!

Last week I included an entry about the Getting started with Docker for Perl developers workshop I am going to run on June 13. This is part of a series of free virtual workshops I started to offer via the Code Mavens Meetup group. If things go well I'll run workshops for 3 languages: Perl, Python, and Rust and several related technologies. I've already schedule 3 events for Rust, 2 for Python, and 1 for Perl. Now, to plan ahead, I scheduled another Perl event:

Continuous Integration (CI): GitHub Actions for Perl Projects on July 14.

Even it these events are not relevant to you or they are not scheduled at a time when you can be available I'd like to invite you to register to the Code Mavens Meetup-group to get notified about other events. I am also going to send out (again) a survey to understand better what topics are more interesting to the members of that group, and at what time would it be most convenient for them. So by registering and voting for Perl you could get more Perl-related events.

Last Week Mohammad mentioned both the The Perl and Raku conference to take place in Las Vegas between June 24-28 and the London Perl and Raku Workshop that will take place, surprisingly, in London on October 26. Are there other in-person or virtual Perl conferences, workshops, or meeting planned? Let us know so we can include them in the Perl Weekly! At the bottom of each edition and on the events page.

The last thing I would like to highlight this week is a link Wendy shared a few days ago of lots of pictures from YAPCs since 2003. I even found several pictures of myself and became a bit nostalgic.

Enjoy your week!

De-accentifying characters?

Is there a way to replace accented characters by their plain version, something like tr/ûšḥ/ush/?

Get CPU usage of PID

'I am making a script with multiple threads...' isn't that in itself a problem in Perl?

Impressive compact and elegant Perl solutions. You are going to love it. Thanks for sharing.

Ones by 1

by Arne Sommer

What I like about Raku is the ability to create compact solutions. I wish we could do similar things in Perl. Thanks for sharing.

Rows Without A Paddle

by Dave Jacoby (JACOBY)

Use of CPAN module makes the end result short and sweet. Keep it up great work.

Perl Weekly Challenge: Week 271

Perl Weekly Challenge 271: Maximum Ones

by Laurent Rosenfeld

Classic show of Raku and Perl power in one place. It is near identical, true talent. Well done.

Perl Weekly Challenge 271: Sort by 1 Bits

by Laurent Rosenfeld

Playing with bits in Perl and Raku is a child play. You have to see it yourself to believe it.

Perl Weekly Challenge 271

by W Luis Mochan

Are you PDL fan? If yes then you must checkout this post. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Riff Raff

by Luca Ferrari

Raku one-liner is showing off once again. Thanks for sharing the knowledge with us.

You are my only ones...

by Matthias Muth

Breaking down task into smaller actions makes it easy to follow through. Keep it up great work.

Only Ones

by Packy Anderson (PACKY)

Like always, we got Perl, Raku, Python and Elixir. Even if you are new to language, you can easily follow through as they all follow the same login. Thanks for sharing.

All about ones

by Peter Campbell Smith

Using just grep to solve the binary matrix task is incredible. Don't forget to try it out the solutions.

The Weekly Challenge - 271

by Reinier Maliepaard

Smart move to get the help of CPAN module. Thanks for promoting the use of CPAN modules. Keep it up great work.

The Weekly Challenge #271

by Robbie Hatley

Loved the hack used to get the job done. It is very impressive. Highly recommended.

Sort the Maximum One

by Roger Bell West (FIREDRAKE)

Happy to see PostScript is the chosen language for the blog post. It is not like any other programming languages but very special. Keep it up great work.

Maximizing the 1 bits

by Simon Green

Thanks for sharing your encounter with GitHub Copilot. I have used it when it was FREE and enjoyed the magic. I must admit it did good job.
