24 days of Perl - Perl Advent calendar review

Back in November I had this idea of a Perl Advent calendar. 24 postings - how hard could it be?

I started with some days ahead. I prepared two or three postings and scheduled them for publishing at midnight. But it didn't take long and I was down to zero post ahead. So I had to write every day! I didn't want to break the series, so I wrote every day. :)

The latest was half an hour before midnight, when I finished this day's posting.

I guess, that's it for the downside. Thanks to the Ironman Planet the traffic was higher than expected. Compared with my German Perl blog there were both more visitors and also more comments. This shows the number of page views from 11/27 till 12/26:

But would I do it again? I don't think so. Lot at my Januar posts - there aren't any. I had enough of it. :)

Perl developers wanted

Are you tired of using Perl only in your spare time? Do you want to work full time as a Perl developer?

Are you not willing to move to Amsterdam, but would prefer the north of Germany (lovely Hamburg)?

My employer is looking for several Perl developers with different skill levels. Please contact me (, if you have any questions or are interested. If you send me your CV I will forward it to my team lead. I can also give you her direct email address. So you can write her directly.
