Perl Advent Calendar 2019 CFP

You are cordially invited to write an article for the 2019 Perl Advent Calendar.

The CFP is open until midnight on Monday September 30th EST.

What’s all this about then?

As an advent calendar author you will write one entry on a module of your choosing that will be revealed to the world on The Perl Advent Calendar on a given day of Advent (between the 1st and 24th of December 2019 inclusive).

The Perl Advent Calendar welcomes diverse author submissions from all types of Perl programmer. It is our firm belief that every Perl programmer, no matter how advanced or how novice, has a favorite Perl module they want to tell the world about. The module that is the subject of the article need not be written by the article author, and more often than not this is not the case.

The Perl Advent Calendar seeks to be an inclusive projects. We encourage and sincerely welcome articles from authors of color, women, queer article authors, transgender authors and from other communities not well represented in the tech world. We do not discrimnate on the basis of religion (yes, that means you can write a Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Solstice, Wintereenmas, or Agnostica article if you want.) Our Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct governs our interactions in the project.

The Perl Advent Calendar believes that the pool of authors should not be limited to people who have English as their first language. Authors who speak English as a second language are encouraged to submit. Each article submission undergoes an editorial process which assists those authors who may need help with their writing.

In order to participate in the Perl Advent Calendar please use this form to submit your chosen module and a brief description of your article (which need be no more than two or three sentences) by no later than 11:59 PM EST Monday September 30th 2019. If you don’t have an idea for an article but would be open to some suggestions or coming up with an article idea later on, just say so in the submission!

We look forward to hearing from you!
