Perl Weekly #598 - TIOBE and Perl

Originally published at Perl Weekly 598

Hi there,

Happy New Year everyone !!!

Year 2022 saw the biggest release of Perl v5.36. It was released with big bang. There were lots of positive vibes around it. I had never seen such noise before. If you missed the fun then you can checkout my GitHub repository.

I am not a big fan of TIOBE but came across TIOBE Index for January 2023 talking about Perl going up slightly in the index recently. It is refreshing to see the progress. Who knows one day, it would reach the TOP 5 brackets.

Looking back the participation in The Weekly Challenge, it looks promising. Nearly 10K contributions in Perl by the members of Team PWC in the last 4 years.

What is new happening in Perl?

For me, personally, I am looking forward to the modern OO Corinna in core Perl.

Curtis wrote an interesting blog post recently where he shared his real life experience with Corinna.

Enjoy rest of the newsletter.
