2023.12 Priced/2

Andrew Shitov comes with exciting news: thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Perl and Raku Foundation, it has been possible to halve the ticket price to The Raku Conference 2023 on August 3-4 in Rīga, Latvia at the same location as the 2019 conference (Twitter, Mastodon).

In other conference news: the deadline for talks at TPRC (11-13 July, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is approaching!

Winding down

Quite a few questions this week, but mostly because yours truly forgot to mention them the past weeks. This week’s picture is to remind us of a future in which the people of Ukraine can return to normality. Слава Україні!  Героям слава!

Please keep staying safe, keep staying healthy, and keep up the good work!

If you like what I’m doing, committing to a small sponsorship would mean a great deal!
