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

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 resources.

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 that
can be found at:

This survey is anonymous, and no information is used to identify
participants. The Human Ethics Committee of the School of Information
Management has approved this research project.
