There are a few ways that you can get a free ebook copy of our book:
- Borrow a co-workers and never bring it back, risking bodily harm
- Illegally pirate a copy, depriving children of food and shelter
- Suggest topics that we can write about on this site, maybe being famous for a week or getting a free ebook version of Effective Perl Programming.
Our publisher, Addison-Wesley, would like to give out one free e-book per month to motivated Effective Perler readers who suggest a topic for one of our weekly posts. We had 120 Items in the book, and as of September, we’ve already added about 35 Items to this website. We need your help to find more things to research and present. We’ll try to choose one reader-suggested idea per month, and the first person who suggested that Item gets the free ebook.
It’s really simple. Just comment on this post telling us the topic that you’d like us to write about. It doesn’t have to be purely Perl but it should be related to Perl programming somehow. Ideally it’s a topic that isn’t already covered somewhere else. You don’t have to explain too much (although we might ask you to clarify if we like your idea). If you don’t have a suggestion of your own, chime in to support someone else’s suggestion.
