PerlMonks - another perl magazine

In light of this recent post, I suppose this is as good a time as any to announce this... (formerly "Perl Archive's Learning Center") is now active and is running on Slash. (Many thanks must be offered to chromatic... it would have not been possible without his book, "Running Weblogs with Slash".)

I'm currently in the process of migrating many of the articles from the obsolete site as well as putting up materials that have been pending publication for some time. Some of the articles that are already there are:

Title Author
Why use chromatic
mod_perl Series (16 articles) Stas Beckman
Finding CGI Scripts davorg
Autovivification : What is it and why do I care? uri
Function of the Month - grep Simon Cozens
Quoting Operators and Interpolation japhy

Both Manning Publications and Pearson Education (Sams) have provided chapters from several of their titles for publication on our site. Among books currently represented on the site are Web Development with Apache and Perl and Apache Administrator's Handbook. Also pending publication are chapters from Graphics Programming with Perl, another chapter from Web Development with Apache and Perl, and mod_perl Developer's Cookbook.

While nothing can compete with the old TPJ, it is unfortunately gone. I really enjoy The Perl Review, but immensely dislike its pdf-only format.

We welcome anyone wishing to post articles/tutorials, book reviews, comments, etc. Please /msg me if you are interested in becoming a monthly columnist for the site.

Thanks to everyone for their insight about our site. We hope that this new format will open up authorship so that everyone feels free to post articles for review and share their knowledge.

    Very nice. I like how you carried over the basic "look" of Perl Archive.

    I did notice a small glitch, though. One of the slashboxes down the left side that appears on each page is labelled "Perl Horizons" and says: "You should update your organisation template and put some links here linking back to your site." ;-)

      Fixed. Thanks for pointing it out :)

    Very nice indeed. I did notice that the perlmonks slashbox is linking to some extremely old articles (Mar. 1 2000 ??). I don't know if thats from a bad data feed on our end or what....


      Also fixed... thanks :)

    I really enjoy The Perl Review, but immensely dislike its pdf-only format.

    I guess there's a place for both. TPR really seems to have a different focus, and the PDF format is used because they target a print issue. So we should see it as a print rather than a web magazine.

    Congrats on the site -- it looks nice and I hope both TPR and perlhorizons will serve to provide a good summary of what's going on in the perl community in the future.

    The domain lapsed after only two years, and the project went to the bit bucket. However, is still around. FWIW. WINM, IMO.

    Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.
      Mi dispiace molto, bit bucket my bad. After a loooong break from school, I went back some years ago and because of that, I sold off most of my sites, including Others, I just let go because there was no more time to maintain them anymore.

      Haven't programmed in a while, either, but getting back into it now thanks to a project I'm working on for my MA.
