---------- Forwarded message ----------

My name is Kevin Carillo and I am a PhD student at the School of
Information Management of Victoria University of Wellington (New

I am currently running a survey that aims at studying how the
experience of a Perl community newcomer has an influence on this
person's actions and project contributions in the community.

I would like to kindly request the leaders of the PerlMongers group to
forward the survey invitation to their respective pm mailing lists.
The more respondents we get, the more the data will help the overall
Perl community. The dataset will be released under a CC license.

Karen Pauley, Nat Torkington, and Mark Keating have already been
informed about the research project and they all have been supportive
and helpful. The study has been already advertised in different Perl

The survey targets contributors to Perl sub-projects endorsed by the
Perl Foundation and who joined Perl within the last 2 years.

You can find a blog post about the research project on blogs.perl.org
