Perl ads on Stackoverflow
To submit an opensource project then you will need a login to their meta stackoverflow site (OpenID, once account created you can then associate this login with your stackoverflow one). After that you need logo of 220x220px and a link to the opensource project.
The final prerequisite is that the submission receives a minimum of 6 votes before ad is served up.
There are currently the following Perl projects listed (all of these are currently above 6 votes and so do get served):
And I have just gone and added PDL & Template Toolkit to this list:
NB. Anyone wanting to improve on my cropping & massaging I did to get logo’s to 220×220 then please do so (its a community wiki. Just login and amend).
As part of Perl marketing, advocacy, support or whatever tickles your fancy, please consider adding some other Perl projects which you find invaluable. And while there please help out the current projects with an up vote 🙂
PS. Perl itself could be included (there are Python & Clojure submissions). I’m not sure what logo should be used or even allowed to be used. Perhaps someone in the know with logo to hand could submit the appropriate ad.
PPS. Stackoverflow gets lots of eyeballs. Depending on what you read, its either around 1m or nearly 3m unique visits per month!
So thats a lot of developer eyeballs these ads are being beamed to!
