So long until next year!
The Advent calendar has ended. It ended yesterday, so behind this door you're not finding a rich, chocolately article about Perl, but instead a bland note from the editor. Sorry!
As always, the Perl Advent Calendar was a group effort, and I'd like to thank everyone who contributed this year: Arthur Axel "fREW" Schmidt, Breno G. de Oliveira, Chris Prather, Dave Mitchell, David Golden, Jeffrey Ryan Thalhammer, Jesse Luehrs, Jonathan Swartz, Karen Etheridge, Mark Fowler, Philippe Bruhat (BooK), Rafaël Garcia-Suarez, Sawyer X, Shawn M Moore, Toby Inkster, and Yanick Champoux.
If you'd like to contribute an article for next year, you've got just about 365 days to do it! This year — for the first time in years, if not ever — we had more submissions than we could publish, so we might already have fewer than 24 slots open for 2013. Wow!
If you want to help with the site or other things in the meantime, you can join our mailing list where we'll be talking about work that needs to get done on things like the FAQ, the site generator, and all that sort of thing. You can find the site's contents on GitHub, which should contain the 2012 articles by the time you see this. It's not exactly how it should be, but it's there.
More importantly, you can find our wish list for fixes and features. Help with these and you will earn fame forever (at least in the git logs)!
So until I'm back at Christmas 2013 – if I don't come to my senses and quit this job – have a merry Christmas and an excellent new year!
