    The Coming Soon Butterfly T-shirt

    We'll send you the Learning Perl 6 Coming Soon limited-edition T shirt. We'll have to wait until the updates to show you what we're thinking for that.

    Note that shipping physical items outside the US is very expensive and I've never had luck finding small run producers elsewhere.

    Old School Llama, 7th Edition & T-Shirt

    I didn't think the signed copies of Learning Perl 6 would sell out, and certainly not this quickly!

    I just got the first copies of Learning Perl, 7th Edition. This is the existing book that covers Perl 5 (up to v5.24 with one small v5.26 adjustment).

    I'll sign and number seven copies and send them out. I know you all already bought your new Llama books.

    Along with that you'll get the monthly drafts of Learning Perl 6.

    Check the shipping rates! This is a tangible item and international shipping is expensive.

    Sponsor an article on Perltricks.com

    Perlticks.com has offered to allow three sponsored content posts for this campaign. I'll write a Perl 6 article similar to other Perltricks posts. You'll get to advertise around that.

    Perltricks promotes its articles in many places you'll reach a Perl audience. This is much more than "We'll mention you". We're quite enthusiastic and effusive about these things!

    You get to support Perltricks and Perl 6 with a single reward.

    Fly to Europe to tell me about it!

    One day of on-site Perl 5 training in Europe (or close to) and one day of Perl 6 training workshop. This is the reward that would really help develop the book as I present the class to a live audience with immediate feedback.

    You'll receive the e-book at whatever state it is in at the time of class delivery.

    I will try to consolidate classes in Europe to a single trip so most of your money does not end up with airlines and hotels.

    And, if you're in Australia, sorry, you already have Damian Conway. He's better than me anyway. Seriously, I'm sure he'd love to teach a class for you.

    Gimme some of that ol' Perl 5

    Two days of on-site Perl 5 training (Mastering Perl or Effective Perl Programming) anywhere in the United States and Canada and one day of Perl 6 training workshop.

    The Perl 5 training is solid, and I'm developing the Perl 6 side. This is the reward that would really help develop the book as I present the class to a live audience with immediate feedback.

    If you want one of the four day classes (Learning Perl or Intermediate Perl) or something across an ocean from North America, we can figure something out. ($10,000 is the Kickstarter limit)
