Just another Perl Ausländer

[ #38591 ]

(cross-posted from Hacking Thy Fearful Symmetry)

Ever since I've learned about the existence of $foo - Perl Magazin, I've been awfully curious to take a peek at it. Unfortunately, they don't ship subscriptions internationally. So I went for the obvious workaround: I hunted high and low for the loveliest German lass I could find, asked her to marry me, and coaxed her family to get and forward me a subscription for the magazine as this year's Christmas gift. Worked like a charm.

And it was worth it too. The magazine is even better than I expected, and it's high praises to the authors that I learned quite a few things from the articles even though my German is still at a protozoic stage. Whether you're a German wanting to learn Perl, or a Perl hacker wanting to learn German, I heartily recommend it.

And talking of Germany, I'll embark tomorrow on a three-week vacation trip across the republic. If there are any Perl mongers meeting this month around Duisburg, Morsbach or Schwieberdigen who wouldn't mind having an Ausländer in their midst, please feel free to drop me an email. :-)

  • Thanks for this journal entry ;-)

    But we do ship subscriptions internationally. So this shows that the website lacks of information about that. Thanks that you mentioned this... There is just one thing with international shipping: you have to pay the additional shipping costs (that differs from country to country).
    We had some issues with international zip codes, but we have fixed this.

    Regarding your visit in Germany: There is one Perlmonger group near Duisburg - Ruhr.pm. I'll drop them an email...

      No, no: thank you for putting such a fine magazine. :-)

      So... the wedding... the machiavelian family manipulations... it was all for nothing? 8-o

      Excellent. Thanks a bunch for that!
