It is my pleasure to announce that Booking.com approached Karen Pauley, President of The Perl Foundation, to announce further sponsorship of the Perl5 Core Maintenance Fund. Booking.com have been generous contributors and supporters of this fund since its inception and this latest generous support is for the incredible amount of €10,000 (ten thousand euros).
Booking.com have sponsored Perl events and initiatives for many years and have also been host to Perl events at their offices in Amsterdam. They employ a large and committed team of Perl developers and use Perl for a vast number of tasks in their business. Booking.com have spoken favourably about how Perl has given them the "ﬂexibility and efficiency that has enabled them to grow quickly".
"Once again we are deeply honoured to receive funding from Booking.com." said Karen Pauley, president of TPF, "Their consistent support for the Perl community, language and events has always been at the core of our relationship and I know I speak for the whole community when I express my gratitude".
