Perl conferences are not just gatherings of professionals using the same programming language but a gathering of friends - we are proud to say that Perl has one of the most tight knit developer communities in the world.

Perl, where to?

2016-06-21 17:06:30 admin Perl Interests 0 Comments

Perl came to be 28 years ago, through the grace of Larry Wall. That was the beginning, that was the start of it all.
