Perl Advent Calendars, 2011 edition.

It's Advent Calendar time in the perl ecosystem! Start each day with a delicious treat of knowledge.

I've found a half dozen english language perl advent calendars, starting with the original perl advent calendar. For extra fun I've included another half dozen Japanese language calendars -- I can still read the perl it's just the prose that is lost in translation.

Ricardo (RJBS) has taken over the Perl Advent calendar this year, which is awesome. Sadly, that means he won't be doing his own "month of rjbs" calendar. I've added a link to his 2010 calendar, in case you missed it the first time around. He's starting the month with Day 1: cpanm and local::lib.

For a second year, Miyagawa has skipped updating plack advent calendar. Check out the 2009 edition linked below. He has given us plenty of other presents this year: Carton, etc.

Don't miss the RJBS Calendar too much. It will appear in late December for as long as the oil lights my keyboard to write by...
