This week, Joelle Maslak sent us the first solution in Perl6 as Pull Request [#265]. Then came Scimon Proctor, again in Perl6 as Pull Request [#266]. Kevin Colyer submitted the next in Perl6 as Github gist. By now, I started thinking where are all #Perl5 hackers. I didn’t have to wait longer, Pete Houston sent us the solution in Perl5 by email. Finally we had our first complete solution in Perl5 by Dave Jacoby as Pull Request [#271]. Chart started looking balanced.
The Perl Weekly Challenge 013 is also very special as it is the first challenge that has prize associated with it. It is always nice to be rewarded but we will keep the focus on Fun and Knowledge Sharing.
Like, most of the members, Andrezgz also used DateTime module to solve the friday challenge. For recursive method challenge, he kept it simple and clean. I noticed something really special $/. Any guesses? [#1] [[#2](https://github.com/manwar/perlweeklychallenge-club/blob/master/challenge-013/andrezgz/perl5/ch-2.pl]
Arne is one of my favourite team member and I always make sure to read his blog for one reason and that is to learn Perl6. [BLOG]

Guillermo solved the Friday challenge without any complications. Such a clean solution. Like other members, he also used memoize for the second recursive method challenge. He even attempted the optional API challenge. Congratulations. [#1] [#2] [#3]

Pete only solved the Friday challenge but I liked the way he used Time::Piece and Time::Seconds. A very unique and different approach. [#1]
Simon has been contributing to the Perl Weekly Challenge since the first week. However recently he is only focussing in #Perl6 solutions. After a long gap, he blogged about his soluions. BLOG]
Steven has been one of the consistent contributors of the Perl Weekly Challenge. However this is the first time, he blogged about his solutions. I must say, he has impressed me with his writing as well now. [#1] [#2] [BLOG]
Last but not the least, I would like to request all members, please send us your photo to use in the weekly blog, if not already sent.
