Dear fellow PerlDancer users, developers and friends.
It's been a long time since we decided to start working on a book. Different attempts were made, by different core developers, and because of many reasons, we still don't have our official book finished.
We have a big plan in mind. Writing a comprehensive book that will go from the very beginning of the project's philosophy to the deepest secrets of the framework. A book any PerlDancer fan would love to have. We know what needs to be written, but we need help.
One of the main reason we don't have a book yet is the lack of time and focus, and the fact that hacking the code gets always a higher priority than focusing on a long-term brain-marathon such as writing a book.
But. We want this book. You want this book. It HAS TO BE :)
So during the Perl Dancer 2015 conference, we chatted a bit about that, and had an idea. What about making that project a real priority, and what about trying to raise some money to give us time, group efforts, and resources to print it?
Well, we did that. We launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise some funds for buying us time and letting us print the book, it's here:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1856511822/perldancer-book
Please. If you use PerlDancer at work, speak about it to your boss, and ask about the opportunity to support the project, you'll get a printed copy of the book in the end.
If you use PerlDancer for personal use, consider supporting us even with a small contribution, 5 or 10 euros can make a difference if everyone in this list contributes.
In the end, when this book will be real and printed it'll be a major asset for all of us, PerlDancer users, and it will help make the project shine even more.
If you like Dancer, contribute, and spread the word, share this link everywhere! :)
Let's do this.
Alexis, for the core team.
