Random Thought: Exposure of Perl in the Academic Circles

Today I have wandered on the famous academic paper archive and suddenly a thought popped into my mind - use Perl as the keyword in searching.

How I Uploaded a CPAN Module

An updated but yet to be completed version is here.


So, accumulating effort from Wednesday, today(Friday) I become a CPAN contributor!

I got a PAUSE ID 2 weeks ago. If you are also interested in the Perl ecosystem, you may consider to apply for a PAUSE ID as well.

Promotion: Knight's Challenge

PROMOTION:

A coding puzzle for “The Weekly Challenge ‐ Perl & Raku” I made has been released this week!

You have 46- hours to play with it if you align with official deadline. It probably spends you 2~5 hours in this weekend. Beware! Doing the bonus part may spend you a block of extra 2 hours or more.

I wish more people will participate and show different approaches to the task. (And, may the participant give me some feedback as a puzzle creator?)

One may have advantage if s/he has played chess.

As the puzzle creator, of course I had a sketch of a solution in my mind.

Yesterday I solved (== coded) the puzzle and is blogging about it this morning. [Spoiler Alert] If you are interested in my solution... source code , blogpost

Miscellaneous:

My blog is moved to GitHub, mainly because I think soon or later I will blog on other programming languages or issues. At this moment, it has a few posts. :o)


CY's Take on PWC#110

If you want to challenge yourself on programming, especially on Perl and/or Raku, go to https://perlweeklychallenge.org, code the latest challenges, submit codes on-time (by GitHub or email).

Do tell me, if I am wrong or you strongly oppose my statements!

Well, I wake up early and get some time to blog about The Weekly Challenge again (in addition, correct some parts of my submitted code ‐ a brain with good rest well spots bugs!).

Both Perl and (gues…
