TPF launches merch store for Perl 5

TPF has launched an online store with Perl merchandise (swag) celebrating the Perl 5.36 release. The marketing committee plan to do a custom celebratory collection for each release of Perl with revenue from each sale goes to TPF's Perl fund.

The store includes long- and short-sleeved t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and stickers - all featuring a new Raptor image for the 5.36 release.




So raptors then? Not onions or camels?

The raptor is a pun on the badmouthing Perl as old in sense: yes might be older than your language but still kills.

The "Raptor logo" is not the _real_ Perl logo; everybody knows that is a camel. The raptor is a Mojo creation. This is just weakening the brand.

Also, it's sowing confusion to have PERL in capital letters given how much we have to correct people for using that rendering.

This 25-year Perl programmer won't be buying one -- and I would love to have some good new Perl attire.
