Monthly Report - April

Last month was mostly dedicated to the "Perl Weekly Challenge". It took most of my spare time and because of that I had to delay my other pet project "London Hack Day". I promise to get it going soon. The "Perl Weekly Challenge" is now settling down quite well. I have had positive feedback so far. We now have 77 active members. It is also becoming popular on Twitter as we now have 117 followers with over 300+ tweets. It is nice to see how Perl5 and Perl6 communities worked on this project without any issues. If you have time then please take a look at the Knowledge Base.

Let's take a quick look through last month main activities.
