Hi all,

I'm following the Plat_Forms ( contest for the last years as interested programmer without any ambition to participate. I had the luck to get known to a member of one of the ruby teams 2011 (Makandra).

Now I've seen that there is exactly one Perl team announced. Does anybody know who's going there to represent Perl?

In any case, I hope that this time Perl as a platform will compete a little better than last year. It would be nice to see that the new web frameworks boosting the productivity of the development team.

Opinions and discussions appreciated.

Best regards

P.S.: I really admire all guys participating at this contest under high pressure. I'm sure I would waste at least some hours setting up my workplace with coffee machine, discussing whether the requirements given are meaningful requirements and afterwards finding out that it is time for lunch. ;-)

    Never heard of it :) I thought contests were something students did

    Hi all,

    just read that the Perl Foundation had to cancel participation:

    That's a pitty. I was so curious whether a Perl team could do a better job than last year.

    Best regards

      I wonder why they "had" to. And the web site is mum on the entire subject.

    Hi all,

    I really have to ask a second time: Does anybody know which programmers are sent by the Perl Foundation to the Plat_Forms contest?

    Best regards

      Have you tried asking The Perl Foundation directly?

      Not everybody reads

        Not yet... ;-)

[perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
[Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
[stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
[perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
[stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
