The DZone tech pub­lish­ing site select­ed me as their Editors’ Pick Contributor of the Month for June 2021! Here’s my (bless­ed­ly brief) accep­tance speech dur­ing their month­ly awards ceremony.

Unfortunately, they’ve just start­ed to de-​prioritize con­tent syn­di­cat­ed from else­where due to Google not index­ing it. Since every arti­cle has to go through a mod­er­a­tion and edit­ing process, this means that I may not be able to ful­fill my promise to post new Perl con­tent there every week. You can still find it here on phoenixtrap.com, of course. ☺️

I’ll be repris­ing my pre­sen­ta­tion on Perl sub­rou­tine sig­na­tures and type val­i­da­tion for the Boston Perl Mongers on Tuesday, March 9 at 7 PM EST. Visit their wiki for details; they’ll be post­ing the Jitsi URL short­ly before the meet­ing. There’s also a Meetup page.

I’ll be pre­sent­ing Better Perl: Subroutine Signatures and Type Validation” (based on my ear­li­er blog post) for Houston Perl Mongers on Thursday, February 11 at 6:00 PM Central US time.

Check here to see what time that is in your local time zone, then go here at that time to open the Zoom meet­ing ID 920 069 702. You’ll need a pass­word; run this Perl code to get that:

print +(0b1000100).((3<<2)*10).(010)
