(A shorter version of this post has been sent as a thank-you email to our sponsors.)
The Perl QA Hackathon in Lyon has ended last Sunday. According to the participants, it was a great success. They know, as well as the organisers, that we could never have made it without the support of our sponsors. We would like to thank them again for their help. Perl and CPAN come out better and stronger of these four days of hacking and talking.
Tina Müller is organising the next edition of the Perl QA Hackathon in Berlin in 2015. We hope she and our sponsors will be in touch in the future. :-) And also that this post will inspire new sponsors to support an event that has become a yearly milestone for Perl and CPAN.
Rather than badly paraphrasing what the participants had to say, I'll simply pass only some significant quotes from their blogs, on the topics that are relevant to sponsors past and future.
