The DZone tech publishing site selected me as their Editors’ Pick Contributor of the Month for June 2021! Here’s my (blessedly brief) acceptance speech during their monthly awards ceremony. (Fast-forward to 54:88.)

Unfortunately, they’ve just started to de-prioritize content syndicated from elsewhere due to Google not indexing it. Since every article has to go through a moderation and editing process, this means that I may not be able to fulfill my promise to post new Perl content there every week. You can still find it here on, of course. ☺
