Ah great to hear! Can't find many local folks who use Perl these days and online info isn't always the greatest either.

Any suggestions on practice problems or challenges worth working on? I like the "solve problems relevant to you" mentality but sometimes have trouble coming up with my own challenges.

(previously known as Perl 6) every day at my job at the Engineering
Computer Network.  Use Raku more than any other language for general
programming---use Mathematica for technical programming when the math,
graphics, or interfacing with curated data is easier in Mathematica than
