cPanel Sponsor P5CMF

cPanel.pngIt is my pleasure to announce that the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund (Perl 5 CMF) has attracted sponsorship from cPanel. cPanel approached Karen Pauley, president of The Perl Foundation, during the recent YAPC::NA conference in Asheville and announced their intent to sponsor this fund. Karen was both pleased and delighted at the generosity of cPanel who have decided to sponsor $10,000.

cPanel has been developed in Perl and they have been sponsoring Perl events for many years, cPanel have been major contributors towards North American YAPCs as well as workshops. This generous contribution towards the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund is just another example of their continued investment in the Perl community and the Perl language.

On hearing the news of this generous contribution Nicholas Clark, who will be one of the recipients of the initial funding drive, stated, "donations are wonderful news, and a clear vote of confidence in the ongoing relevance of Perl 5 in the commercial environment. It's great to see this encouragement for the less than sexy work that provides the firm foundations to the more visible and fun aspects of Perl's renaissance."
