Grant Updates

Desperately trying to catch up with everything needed for the grant committee and am (finally) getting around to posting grant updates for Ingy and Chris Laco. For Ingy's "Port PyYAML to Perl" grant:

Ingy's not been able to make much progress over the last month due to other commitments, but is now back in the saddle. He's aiming to do the the libyaml bindings first. This will likely get us to working code faster.

Chris Laco's Mango grant, however, has lots of great news.

Haskell book available on wikibooks

I was checking out Wikibooks today and noticed that one of the "hot picks" is a wikibook on Haskell. Looks like it might be a good way to get your feet wet and maybe help out the Perl 6 development effort.

If you have an idea for doing some work for the Perl community and you think it's worthy of a grant, please send your grant entry to [email protected]. Submission deadline is the last day of February, voting starts in March and we will be awarding the grants by the beginning of April.

First, please read about how to submit a grant. Read that carefully as grants are often rejected if they don't meet the criteria. For example, if you want to submit improvements to a well-known project but there's no evidence that you have at least tried to work with the maintainers of that project, the grant will likely not be approved. You can also read through our rules of operation for a better idea of the grant process.

European Perl Hackathon

Details are now available for the European Perl Hackathon in Arnhem, the Netherlands, from 2 - 4 March, 2007. Space is limited for this one and it's coming up soon, so don't wait if you're interested.

From the organizers:

Familiarity with the featured projects is not required; you need only bring a laptop and a willingness to join in.

Although there is no fee to attend the hackathon, you are required to pay for your own accommodation and transportation. However, it is possible to book a room at the venue location when you register for the hackathon, at the price of € 74 for two nights plus breakfast.

Space is limited to 30 participants, and registration is required. Reservations for accommodations made through the hackathon must be made by 9 February; reservations for the event itself must be made no later than 22 February.

For more information about the event, please refer to http://conferences.yapceurope.org/hack2007nl
