When I proposed Bhagavad Git API task for the Perl Weekly Challenge - 017, I was hoping one of team member from India would pick this up. Our API task leader, Joelle Maslak, has been beaten by Randy Lauen, who just joined the team. As usual, Joelle always takes up API task in Perl5 and Perl6. This time, Adam Russell also joined the group for API task this week.
I have had many request from the team members to make RSS feed available for the website. Personally, I am not a big fan of RSS. Therefore never bother looked into the details. But after so many request for RSS feed, I created perl script to generate the feed. I would love to hear what you think. If you have any suggestions to improve then please do share with us. You can find the link in the page footer. For now, you can check out here.
Last but not the least, keep contributing to the weekly challenge, making sure we keep the focus on Fun and Knowledge Sharing.
Adam literaly converted the task spec into perl subroutine. It can’t be any simpler. Great use of Parse::Yapp, I must confess it took me long to get my head around. [PERL #1] [PERL #2] [PERL #3] [BLOG #1]
Duane use of recursive function for Ackermann Function task is simple but elegant. I liked the idea of test data generation. He took the help of URI module to solve URL parser task. [PERL #1] [PERL #2]

Choroba introduced Erlang while working on Ackermann function. He always find some new distribution from CPAN to solve the task. This time, he used URI::URL to solve URL parser task. Great learning experience. [PERL #1] [PERL #2] [BLOG #1]
Michael created hyper function to deal with Ackermann Function task. [PERL #1]

Francis showed how to caching can be used with Perl6 to solve the Ackermann function. Perl6 lover would find the Grammar based solution to URL parser task very informative. [RAKU #1] [RAKU #2] [BLOG #1]
Ozzy attempted URL parser task with the Perl6 Grammar. You must check out. [RAKU #2]
Welcome to the team, Randy. I loved you started with the optional API task. Looking forward to more fun in the following weeks. [RAKU #3]
Scimon is always lightning fast in submitting the solution in Perl6. [RAKU #1]
