Perl Weekly #612 - Coming Soon!

Originally published at Perl Weekly 612

Hi there,

So what's coming soon!

Well it's the subject of the talk to be presented by Curtis Poe at The Perl and Raku Conference 2023, TORONTO, Canada. I have been waiting for the event to come to Canada as going to America was never on card. Post 9/11, travelling to America having Mohammad as first name isn't good idea. Having seen the list of speakers, I am sure it's going to be lots of fun. I really wanted to attend the event and meet the top guns. So what's stopping me? I haven't been keeping well in the recent months. I know my current employer, Oleeo has been regular sponsor of London Perl Workshop and have sponsored selected few to attend various events in the past. Having said, I have to be mentally prepared before I take the plunge but I really don't want to miss the opportunity. I still remember the first time, I attended the talk by Curtis was at German Perl Workshop 2018 and it was about Rescuing Legacy Code. After that I met him again at The Perl Conference 2019, Riga. I think that was the last time I ever attended any conference in person. I am not sure if I still have time to reserve a place or even submit a short talk proposal at The Perl and Raku Conference 2023.

Talking about conference, I would also like to mention another big event in Europe, The Perl and Koha Conference in Helsinki. They have extended time to accept talks. So if you are planning to attend then please do submit your proposal now. I am planning to visit India in the month of August otherwise I would have given a push.

I am a big fan of writing skills of brian d foy, Curtis Poe, Damian Conway, Dave Cross and many more. It's not just about blog post but also about their books. Dave Cross recently published GitHub Actions Essentials. I haven't read it yet but I am confident it is going to be worth spending time and money.

Enjoy the rest of the newsletter and please do take extra care of your health.

Your editor: Mohammad S. Anwar.
