[dancer-users] Dancer Advent Calendar 2015

Hello there!

My worthless 2c:

Based on our experience with the Perl Weekly, people usually click on 1
maybe 2 articles. So I think it is quite unlikely
many people will be able to follow the Advent calendars.

I also think it is quite hard to read so many articles in such a short
period of time. Especially as several other Advent calendars
are competing to our attention.

Google Analytics of http://advent.perldancer.org/ tells me that most of the
month the site gets about 1500-1800 visits / month
In December 2013 it got 3500 visits, in December 2014 it got 4,400 visits.
The http://perldancer.org/ site gets about 7-8,000 visits / month.

Instead of and Advent calendar in December, I'd suggest to spread out the
24 articles and have one published every 2 weeks during 2016.
Though it does not need to wait till January. It could be started next
week. Then we could include them in the Perl Weekly
and other Dancer enthusiasts could also spread the links.

I'd also suggest to publish the articles on the http://perldancer.org/ site
and to move all the content from http://advent.perldancer.org/
to the http://perldancer.org/ and to create a unified table of context for
all the articles, but that's a slightly different story.
