## RECAP - Perl Weekly Challenge - 008

Monday, May 20, 2019| Tags: Perl, Raku

The Challenge - 008 participation was same as the Challenge - 007 in terms of number of members participated. However this time we received more than solution with the introduction of the optional third API challenge. As a matter of fact, Joelle Maslak care to answer the third challenge. She solved the third challenge in Perl5 and Perl6.

Maxim is the relative new the challenge but he really impressed me with this work. Check out his use of oct() to solve the perfect numbers challenge. Solution to the second challenge is also very impressive. [#1] [#2].

### Ruben Westerberg

Ruben kept it simple while dealing with the perfect numbers challenge. [#1] [#2].

### Scimon Proctor

Scimon is one of few members, who is comfortable in both Perl5 and Perl6. However, I noticed recently, his focus is only on Perl6. [BLOG].
