Hi Catalysters,

A new edition of the Plat_Forms programming contest is going to take
place in end 2010 or beginning of 2011 : see
http://www.plat-forms.org/2010/plat-forms-in-2010 . 

The first edition took place in 2007 and our Geneva team on Catalyst was
winner of the Perl track (http://use.perl.org/~dami/journal/33559 ).
Unfortunately we will not be able to participate again this time; but I
wish that another Catalyst team will be present. Reports from that
contest got significant coverage in specialised press , and can play an
important role in propagating a positive image of Perl. See for example
the August 2010 issue of the prestigious "Communications of ACM"
web-development-technology/abstract , full text available at
http://page.mi.fu-berlin.de/prechelt/Biblio/platforms07-cacm-2010.pdf );
the conclusion reads :

	Is Perl outdated? No. In contrast, the small size of the
solutions and their good modifiability suggest that Perl may be a
particularly strong platform with respect to maintainability.

So, Perl programmers, please build up teams to participate in the
2010/2011 edition!
