    It's finally here! The Programming the Raspberry Pi with Perl eBook has been released!

    I have to admit that due to several significant instances of trauma in my life over the past year I wasn't able to provide much assistance at all, so all of the credit here goes to Timm. I will continue on with the project though (editing duties, adding additional chapters etc) going forward.

    I want to especially thank all of the financial contributors who brought the book to life, and all of those who have provided insights into both the book itself, and aspects of it.

    If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, issues or otherwise with the book itself, the ideas it presents or the actual code, don't hesitate to contact me here, or at my contact email here.

    Have you ever wanted to do this?

    <html> <head> <title>Hello, Perl World!</title> <script type="text/perl"> print "Hello, Perl World!\n"; </script> </head> <body></body> </html>

    Well, now you can!* :-)

    I just released what I'm calling WebPerl - please see the website for all the documentation, downloadable demo, and source code. It's still very much in beta, and your feedback is very welcome!

    I gave a lightning talk on it yesterday at YAPC::EU 2018 in Glasgow, you can see the recording of the live stream here (link should go to 8h9m40s). Update: The video seems to have gone down, unfortunately. Will update once something is back up, for now the website contains all the documentation. Update 2: Video is back up, thanks for pointing it out, Corion! New Video Link (link should go to 8h12m)

    * Update: What you need to do to make the above example work is download WebPerl, put the files in the same directory as the HTML file, and add <script src="webperl.js"></script> in the above HTML - then you should get the output of the print in your browser's JavaScript console. The website also gives some more "quick start" instructions.

    Update 2: I have since posted a few more nodes on WebPerl:

    The beta version of DBD::MariaDB is now on CPAN.

    It's a fork of DBD::mysql with many fixes that were impossible in the original distribution (including security fixes and Unicode support). Enjoy and help us by reporting any issues you encounter!
