I have started to create a list of programming exercises. Mostly extracted from my Perl beginner course. Some of them already have "Tools" that help solve the exercise. Some of them even have links to a solution in Perl 5.
If you have ideas for exercises I'd be happy to hear about them.
When you see an article on Reddit /r/perl upvote it. If you see an article about Perl that is not on Reddit yet, post it.
If you'd like to make a small contribution to the Perl 6 development error, here is a low hanging fruit:
Add Travis-CI configuration to one of the Perl 6 modules. I wrote a Perl 6 script to find GitHub repositories without Travis-CI, but you don't even need that as 59 out of the 71 modules don't have the configuration yet, so it will be quite easy to locate one that waits for your Pull-request.

The Vagrant PDE is a VirtualBox image ready for Perl development with many of the CPAN modules you'd want to use.
- Upgraded the Operating System to Ubuntu 2015.04
- Added Rakudo Perl 2015.09
- Added several Perl Modules
- Upgraded all the other Perl Modules
If you have never used it, you can follow the instructions for the
Vagrant Perl Development Environment.
If you already have the previous version installed, yo…
I just tried to add perl 5.22 to the list of perl I run my tests on, but it seem Travis-CI does not support perl 5.22 yet.
This reminded me that it would be nice if I could configure Travis-CI to use a flag such as 'latest_production' that will always use the latest version of perl available in Travis-CI so when the finally add 5.22 the "latest_production" will automatically pick up that version.
It would be also great to have 'blead' that would use blead perl for testing.
Is any of these possible today?…
