Grants: March 2019 votes

No Comments

The Grants Committee has concluded the voting of the November 2018 round.

There was one proposal this round, which was not approved.

A Complete (Interactive) Perl 6 Course with Exercises (9,996 USD)

Voting results: Not approved: 3 YES votes with a score of 11 (2 votes of 5, 1 vote of 1), 4 NO votes

This was a close vote. Many members were very enthusiastic about this project. Others, while agreeing that a course like this would be good for the language, were concerned about:

  • Hosting: Previous grants designed to create a site have failed due to a lack of support/hosting for the completed software/content; Delaying this decision until the content is created could result in a technically successful grant, but a product that is not deployable.
  • Technology: One potential suggestion for the technology for the interactive examples was offered, but are no details about how that would work or impact hosting.
  • Content Details: More specifics about the items in the 3 content groups would be helpful.

If there are any community members who would be willing to host a solution like the one proposed, please reach out to Andrew or the committee (or the Board).

We accept proposals throughout the year; our next round of review will begin the first week of May. You can submit proposals now.
