Invented in 1987 and in strong development for over 30 years, Perl is one of the programming languages that has most contributed to computing, especially in the server environment, appreciated for its elasticity and its power to the point of being an integral part of all Linux operating systems. It is supported by a highly motivated community that contributes to a vast collection of software and documentation such as CPAN.
The strength is the maturity, by which we mean as "wisdom" and not as "seniority", which is why you don't run the risk of finding the code unusable overnight. Perl, is a language that evolves, the wind of change blow, but without forgetting its past, here we look to the future, we embrace the new that advances. Among the most interesting developments we can certainly mention RPerl which allows you to parallelize and compile your Perl software to get a native, ultra-fast and fully compatible binary.
Perl is ultimately a modern and sociable language, it interacts with the shell and other programming languages, allows you to implement small procedures or build an entire software distributed on different servers, optionally equipped with complex graphical interfaces for the web. With PSGI / Plack technology it is possible to show an interface like any other website.
We use Perl, which is a programming language developed by a community of excellent programmers. We draw freely from all the available resources and assume a moral obligation to give back to the community, perhaps writing documentation or notifying a problem encountered in a module. There are so many ways in which we can help, including contributing to complex Perl projects.
CPAN is a virtual place where the brightest minds meet, here you can see the tremendous amount results achieved by the work of thousands of professional programmers, engineers and computer scientists who have contributed to Perl. CPAN is literally a library that contains extensive documentation and thousands of Perl modules that can be used to accelerate the development of any idea.
We love all this and we also want to do our part for the Perl community.
Information technology is progressing very rapidly and Perl is tracing new paths without the help of large companies or the investment of large amounts of capital, we are really proud to be part of a community with such a strong temperament, with such a wide vision and a courageous mission, and we do it for real with The Perl Master Plan, here we focus our ideas which are the future Perl's milestones, because we, the Perl community, we know exactly where we want to go and above all who we want to be.
In this spirit Perl Support promotes the updating of existing CPAN modules and the development of new Perl software aligned with new technologies, above all RPerl. We want the production of new, understandable and up-to-date documentation to facilitate the emergence of a new generation of Perl programmers, we have one of the longest histories in the IT industry, and as we look to the future we cannot fail to support Perl Foundation which is in everyone's best interest. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome.
