We are excited to announce that we’ve recently made a significant donation to assist in the continued development and maintenance of the dynamic and powerful Perl programming language. With a clear commitment to innovation and development, we are certain that the $10,000 donation toward to Perl 5’s Core Maintenance Fund (Perl 5 CMF) will help to ensure the continued advancement of what it considers a powerful resource.
At Liquid Web, we’ve developed much of our software using perl and continues to do so. The programming language serves as an integral tool for the continued development of our existing systems such as its billing, support and monitoring programs.
Liquid Web Founder and CEO, Matthew Hill, speaks on the importance of the Perl Community:
–“Giving back to the Perl community is something we’ve been interested in for some time. As Liquid Web continues to expand and grow, we find the need for more developers proficient in perl grows in kind. Supporting Perl’s continued excellence ensures that important programs that have proven invaluable to Liquid Web’s success will continue to perform to our specific needs. ”
Karen Pauley, President of the Perl foundation, was delighted with the news of the donation. “This investment in Perl’s future from Liquid Web will go a long way to help maintain the viability of Perl 5 as a platform for the many businesses that depend upon it and will deliver a positive impact upon the entire Perl community,” stated Pauley upon hearing of the donation. The Perl Foundation is encouraged with success stories such as that of Liquid Web and other companies that have been built on the programming language’s strong foundation and is excited to continue moving forward with them.
