On December 18, 1987, Larry Wall released Perl 1 to the public. That means today is the end of Perl's 20th year. On Perl's 16th birthday, Richard Clamp gave us Perl 1. Rumor has it that this birthday, Perl5Porters is giving us Perl 5.10, the best Perl 5 yet.
The Windy City Perl Mongers are getting together for a birthday party at Miller's Pub (134 S Wabash Ave, Chicago) at 6:30pm. Who else is hosting Perl birthday parties? Can we make it a 24 hour party rolling through all of the time zones?
