Perl Weekly Challenges

on Jun 15, 2020 at 04:28 UTC ( #11118073=perlnews: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I followed the link to r/perl and was pleasantly surprised to see a link to "Perl Weekly Challenges" that seems to be quite active.

I never participated in the Perl golf on account of me being totally lost or the Perl programming challenges of yore, but I was pretty active with the Pull Request Challenge when it was going. I got a lot out of it and I strongly encouraged any Perl programmers at $WORK I happened to be mentoring at the time to get involved. Some did, and it was very beneficial for them as well.

In any case, it's no PRC but it looks like the PWCs have been active for quite a few months. Not sure if this is news, but it is new to me. And I don't see how it's fake even tho I found it on leddit, so here you go!

Update - PRC is back, it seems!! Pull Request Club covered in a lightning talk, Kivanc Yazan - State of Pull Request Club - Lightning Talks - Day 2.

    The correct link to the Perl Weekly Challenge is It was announced on PerlMonks, too: see here.

    Moreover, the Pull Request Challenge was succeeded by Pull Request Club. You can join the fun any time you wish.
