I have been asked a few times in the past couple of months about money and my role in The Perl Foundation (TPF). I’m not fond of discussing money so I’ll make this brief. I am not an employee of TPF, I am a volunteer. I don’t receive any money for my work with TPF nor does TPF pay my expenses for travelling or attending conferences. This is true for all TPF volunteers. The only people who do receive money are grant recipients and those who are paid for professional services like accountants and lawyers.
I am very fortunate that I am able to volunteer and get to work with a great community filled with volunteers.
