I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
Higher Order Perl
MJD's new book, Higher Order Perl, has been published. MJ's page on the book recommends buying from Powells.com. It looks like this was a popular choice, as when I tried to place my order for a container of books I was informed that only three were left. Maybe it has something to do with the sale price they're offering.
Those three books are now due to arrive in Australia in a few weeks time, and two of them will probably go to lucky course attendees.
I'd love to find an Australian distributor for Higher Order Perl. While I've got the appropriate contacts for O'Reilly and Manning, I don't for Morgan Kauffman.
