2018 twenty four merry days of Perl Feed

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas - 2018-12-25

So here we are, Merry Christmas!
Everybody's been having fun!
Look to the future now
It's only just begun

So concludes the 19th year of the Perl Advent Calendar. We're already looking forward to the big two zero next year (and if you're inspired by this year it's never to early to sign up as an author for next year's calendar.) In the meantime I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to everyone who's written an article (some people two or three), helped with the hosting, and to those that sent us pull requests for my many many typos or provided improvements and clarifications on articles. So, without further ado let me thank:

  • Andrew Solomon
  • Barbie
  • Branislav ZahradnĂ­k
  • Dave Cross
  • E. Choroba
  • José Joaquín Atria
  • Joel Berger
  • Mohammad S Anwar
  • Nick Tonkin
  • Pete Houston
  • Ricardo Signes
  • Tony Edwardson
  • I literally couldn't have done it without you people, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Of course, as has been the case for many years now, this isn't the only technology advent calendar. There's several more calendars about Perl that if you haven't been following I urge you to head off and enjoy:

    However, you shouldn't stop with just Perl. These days there's a plethora of technology advent calendars that's worth reading and are aggregated at Advent Planet

    Finally, if you love Perl, and the fact that you've been reading these calendars indicates you do, consider supporting the ongoing development of Perl with a donation to the Perl Foundation. You could even set up a reoccurring payment as an early New Year's resolution.

    Merry Christmas from me to yours, and a Happy New Year.

    Mark.
