I apologize for such sparse news in the past week or two. As some of you may know, I'm writing a book for Pragmatic Bookshelf on job hunting for technical people: Programmers, sysadmins, project managers, etc. Some of you may have seen me talk about job hunting at OSCON or YAPC, and the book is a lot like that. It turns out that writing books is time-consuming!
For the past couple of weeks I've been pushing toward a major milestone: Getting to the halfway point and pushing it out to people for review. It's been sucking up most of my Copious Free Time, time that I might otherwise spend hacking on Parrot, or submitting stories to Perlbuzz, or whatnot. Last night, I built the PDF and sent it out for review. A huge burden is off my shoulders for now, even as the other 50% loads up on them.
In the next day or two, I'm going to be going through my backlogs of blog posts that I've marked as "save for posting to Perlbuzz." There are a lot of things I've been wanting to talk about, but have held off on for fear of bodily harm from my Cruel But Fair Editor, Susannah. Thanks for your patience.
