I noticed few members came back after a short break. Welcome back. It is always nice to see you taking part in the weekly challenge. I hope to see you again and again. I would like to this opportunity to welcome new members. I hope you are having fun with the challenges. The moto of the weekly challenge is to have fun solving the challenges and learn from others. It feels nice when I hear positive feedbacks from the members. If you have any suggestions, please share with us. Enjoy the solutions and learn from each other.
Adam used CPAN modules like Fstream and Parse::YYLex to solve Roman numerals challenge. I must admit, I never heard of it before. But for Jaro-Winkler challenge, he relied on pure Perl power. [#1] [#2] [BLOG].
Arne Sommer, being on vacation last week, still managed to solve one of the challenge. If you look at the quality of his technical writing, it is priceless. A very good reference point for anyone learning Perl 6, very well explained in details. [BLOG].
E. Choroba solution to the Roman numerals challenge still a mysetery to me. I am looking forward to his blog for explanation. But for Jaro-Winkler, he took the shortcut and used CPAN module Text::JaroWinkler. [#1] [#2].
Francis is one of the few Perl6 experts in the team. He solved the challenge with the help of Grammar (Perl6). Please take a look if you want to learn more about Grammar in Perl6. [BLOG].
Gustavo solution to Roman numerals is very intelligent. In a sense, it decides the conversion depends on the input value. Very smart. Jaro-Winkler solution is complicated. Not sure if it just me. [#1] [#2].

Joelle as always shared her solutions in Perl5 and Perl6. She is one the few who always solves the optional API challenge as well. Next week API challenge is also proposed by her. Checkout out her solutions to all three challenges. [#1] [#2] [#3] [BLOG].
Our in-house #Perl5 reviewer, Kian-Meng, solved the Roman numerals challenge with complete breakdown of internals. [#1]
Kivanc came back after a short break with a bang. His solution to Roman numerals is short and sweet. [#1]
Maxim provided very simple and easy to follow solution to the Roman numerals challenge. [#1].
Pavel also came back after a short break with a nicely laid out solution to the Roman numerals. [#1].
Steven came back after a short break with a complete solution including unit test. I loved it. [#1].
Last but not the least, I would like to request all members, at least the one who blogs, please send us your photo to use in the weekly blog, if not already sent.
