Fellow Monks, this is my 100th post. Not much, but an excuse to look back.

This February I decided to delve a little deeper into Perl. I was not a complete newbie, but not much of an expert either, I could mess around with text processing, but that was all.

After I decided to learn more, the first few searches led me here to the Monastery, I happily joined up and I'm enjoying my time here ever since.

I learned a lot, not just about Perl, but about programming in general. I thank you all for being kind, sharing your knowledge and guiding the needy.

After 9 months, I am not a complete newbie, not much of an expert neither. But Perl has become my hobby, and I began to teach newbies at our firm. Still a long way stretches before me, but I've got the skill, I've got the will and I've got countless Monks by my side.

Thank you! Danke! Dziękuję! Děkuji! Merci! Grazie! Gracias! Obrigado! Tack! Takk! Köszönöm!

I'm too lazy to be proud of being impatient.

    I wish we might have a constant stream of newcomers who apply a conscientious and confident approach to learning as you have demonstrated. Perl needs people who are ready to roll up their sleeves and dive in with passion.


      I'm one of those newcomers :-) I've actually come back to programming after a long time & guess which language I chose to write my first app in ? Right, it's Perl. It's fun & so quick to code in Perl.

    Throughout the dim cloisters of the Monastery’s meditation room, the cowls of several robes appear to be nodding slightly ...

    Cheers on your 100th post homie :)

    I come and go around here depending on what I'm doing in life (as I am not a programmer), and I always appreciate witnessing new Perl enthusiasts reaching milestones. I feel that those who are proud of their accomplishments (solving a new problem with code or posting their $x post on PM) deserves a congratulations.

    Stick with it (both Perl and PerlMonks). Regardless of where you travel or what you do for a living, after having learnt even the most basic Perl will have you thinking about all problems from different angles, and the people here at PerlMonks will always ensure you have a place to come back to whenever you need it and for whatever you need.
