The Perl Weekly newsletter

When it comes to getting fresh Perl news, the community provides many resources.
It can be time consuming to sift through all of them and there is always the chance that you will miss interesting tidbits about your favorite scripting language.

Lo and behold, Gabor Szabo (szabgab) comes to your rescue. His weekly Perl Weekly newsletter is an aggregate of all the recent happenings in the world of Perl programming. He is doing a great job of extracting the big news for us in order to save time to everyone.
You can read the newsletter on the web or subscribe to receive it in your mailbox. 13 issues are out already!

The Perl Channel

Gabor has been keeping himself busy recently, having the courage to stand in front of the spotlights. A few months ago, he started a series of Perl videos on YouTube. There are, as of the end of October 2011, 25 segments of about 15 minutes.
If you are starting development of Perl programs on Windows, this is another great resource for learning. There are beginner lessons, Padre tutorials, Perl 6 videos and more.
If you prefer your information presented by a live person (as opposed to read from a document), I recommend that you check it out now. Even better, watch it on your phone during your commute (WARNING: do not drive and Perl at the same time!).

  1. It's always very encouraging to get such public feedback.

    It also helps the search engines and all the human readers to see the recommendations of others.

    Thank you for your post!
