I’ll be running a workshop based on my recent Blogging Outside the Bubble webinar during Developer Career Day 2021, which is running from August 6 through 7. It’s free to register, with top speakers and practical career discussions.
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.

Just gave a five-minute lightning talk about blogging at The Perl and Raku Conference in the Cloud 2021. Here are the slides as a PDF.

We also had a little detour into Docker-land where we simplified his launch command into
Head on over to Perl Maven if you’d like to catch up with previous installments or register with Zoom for the next one scheduled on Sunday, May 30.
Gábor’s already posted today’s video!
It’s really interesting to see our different development styles work together. Gábor’s all about trying things immediately and searching the entire web for answers, while I like to read the documentation and work out its writers’ intent.
I’m also embarrassed that we ended on a “cliffhanger” with an unresolved error, though Gábor posted that he managed to resolve it.
Perl tops this list of salary rankings from Business Insider. Granted it’s harder to find a job, but when you do you’re paid well. Do you want to be a commodity or do you want to be valued?
My latest article on Perl.com is up now on how to download and install Perl on various platforms. I hope it’s helpful.
This morning (or yesterday evening, depending on your time zone), Gábor Szabó and I embarked on another episode of Mojolicious-powered development on his course management application. Video evidence and links are here.
