I just watched the excellent keynote of Jessica McKellar at Kiwi PyCon 2013 titled The Future of Python - A Choose Your Own Adventure It is 35 min long.
The key points were:
she also mentions that the Python Foundation can help with money and people.
The budget of the Perl Foundation vs the Python foundation
So I checked a bit. According to Wikipedia the PSF had a budget of $750,000 in 2011. The Wikpedia does not know the budget of The Perl Foundation, but in the 2013 year end report we can see the following expenses:
Grants: 105,000 Conferences: 106,795 Community and Marketing: 8,805 Administration: 10,896 -------- TOTAL: USD 231,496
Perl or Python?
So why is this intersting? Because the some of the same opportunities exist for the Perl community as well.
You just have to choose your own adventure.
