Noone at the meeting last night seemed to have heard about the
forthcoming London Perl Workshop, so I thought I'd mention it here.
The workshop is free to attend, but since there aren't limitless places,
you have to sign up on the website:
I'm having some problems reaching that site at the moment, but I'm sure
it'll be up again shortly.
This is taken from the announcement that went to the London.pm list:
London Perl Workshop 2005
City University London, UK
Saturday 26th November 2005, 10am to 6pm
The 2005 London Perl Workshop is intended to allow Perl beginners to
learn from long-standing members of the community, while also giving
the experts a chance to make easy tasks seem trivial, and hard tasks
We'd specifically like to encourage people who wouldn't normally speak
at, or even come to, Perl events to turn up and to submit talk
proposals. We promise we're a lovely bunch of people and we want to
hear from people outside the usual circle of Perl mongers.
As a special treat we're lucky enough to have Mark Jason Dominus
speaking. He'll be doing an extended talk on Higher Order Perl and
related subjects which practically every Perl programmer -- from
novice to wizard -- can learn from. MJD (as he is affectionately
known) is consistently rated one of the best speakers at OSCON and his
talks are always highly entertaining and incredibly informative.
We will be running two tracks -- "Learning Perl" and "Advanced Perl".
The workshop will run from 10am to 6pm, with an hour set aside for
lunch (food will not be provided, but there are plenty of pubs and
cafes nearby). Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available at morning
and afternoon breaks.
