Today I got an email reminder that the Metacpan logos are all in and that the voting booths are open, and will be so until Friday the 30th of March 2012, 23:00:00 UTC.
There is so much to learn out there. So much to accomplish and so much to devour technically. It can be daunting and overwhelming to have so much in one’s plate, and that is why this Log Buffer Edition has culled some top notch blog posts for you in Log buffer #264.
