Marketing rumbling in the perl community.

[ #39363 ]
To all you people making rumblings about marketing effort in the Perl community (I know who you are). I have a Perl Foundation grant outstanding that I intend to complete by the end of this year.

Anyway, I'm keeping an eye on the discussion, archiving it, and will be responsive to feedback. At some point in the not too distant future (probably late August, maybe sooner) I will rustle up a focus group on IRC so that I can attempt to work where to go with some of the more subjective bits of the survey I end up running.

  • I like what you're doing with this grant, but while I think some of our goals converge, I want to be more proactive about reaching out to decision makers and understanding their attitudes vis-a-vis Perl and language choice in general. I don't know that scraping a bunch of random blog entries is going to necessarily give us the answers I'm hoping to dig up. I could be dead wrong, though :)

    Perhaps we could find a way to work together on this?

  • At least that's our statistician checked off :)
