Monthly Report - November

I would like to dedicate November 2018 to the London Perl Workshop 2018. The main focus was LPW, being member of LPW Organizers. Lots of preparation went in the background to make it such a successful event. Kudos to all fellow members, community members and sponsors.

Two things are common in every monthly report and I can't live without it. One, submitting Pull Request as many as possible and second daily uploads to CPAN, as of today, 1st December 2018, is the 468th day non…

Hacktoberfest 2018 - Memorable Moments

I remember the first time when I participated the Hacktoberfest challenge in the year 2015, I was so excited competing with other hackers. Although I only had to submit 4 Pull Request to get specially designed free T-shirt but I went ahead and submitted 45 Pull Request in that month. I was very pleased to receive my first T-shirt. I still wear it occassionally with pride. I continued participating the challenge every year ever since but never beat that first year record of 45 Pull Request.

Year 2016: 12 Pull Request
Year 2017: 40 Pull Request
