I have heeded the advice of wise (or, at least, much less clueless) Monks and I have been exploring the Dancer2 open source project. I have been excited enough by it to make my first bona fide contribution to a GitHub project which will eventually (if approved) make its way to CPAN. My first contribution to Perl. Yay me! It's just documentation for now. Hopefully I will be able to contribute some actual functional code. One can dream.
I'm wondering if there are any active contributors to Dancer2 here on Perlmonks. I'd love to hear more about the developer community and your experiences. Thanks!
