Perl: Language, Community, and the Future

I’ve been talking a lot about Perl this summer but wanted to tackle one more topic that is very important to me and ActiveState: the Perl Community. Every since I joined ActiveState last year, I have been exposed to the Perl community in a way I never was before. I’ve been even more impressed with the passion and commitment of this diverse community and thought I’d share a few thoughts on why I think that the Perl community is so great--and why it’s been integral to keep Perl relevant.
