Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Send a Newbie!

[ #38902 ]

If you've been to any conferences, you've probably met many folks you've met before. Many of people you meet there are extremely experienced and the sorts of conversations which arise are from their point of view.

We need newer people to get involved in conferences, share their point of view and take this enthusiasm back home. These people are often younger programmers, enthusiasts, or college students and can't afford to go to conferences. Let's pay their way.

Edmund von der Burg has created Send a Newbie. I've just put my money where my mouth is and donated enough to cover the estimated cost of a flight to Portugal. Let's help get fresh blood in the Perl community.
