Subject: [LA.pm] LA-PM sponsoring a booth at SCALE?
I wanted to open
discussions on this list as to whether the LA.pm would like to host a booth at
the upcoming Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) to be held on the weekend of
February 10th and 11th (http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale5x/).
As a local user group, there would be NO COST! Trust me, that's a wonderful
thing so I'd really like to take advantage of their generosity. I'll only do
this though if we can get members to volunteer to sign-up for specific spots to
sit in the booth and evangelize for our favorite programming
I have attended this event for
a few years and the turn out for open-source minded individuals is just
tremendous. This is a great opportunity to keep the buzz for perl alive in our
area and perhaps have a very public forum for addressing specific misinformation
that to my surprise never seems to go away (e.g., perl is slow, perl can't
scale, perl can't be used for building "real" applications,
The only requirement
that SCALE organizers place on us is that we will have to have
live demonstration systems showing something related to perl at the show.
They'll provide free internet access and power. We need to provide a few boxes
showing "something" that we can demonstrate. This could be examples of
performance tests in operation, a perl-based rapid development framework,
etc. I think it would be ideal if the demonstration could address one
of perl's common misconceptions (e.g., performance, difficulty to use, etc.)
rather than just do something cryptic or esoteric.
In order to know if we should
proceed, I'll need for everyone who is interested to reply.
1). Should we have a
2). Will you take a
time slot at the event (Sat-Sun - Feb 10-11). The length of the "slot" will
depend on the number of volunteers.
3). Do you have an
idea for a demonstration?
4). Will you help to
build one or more demonstrations?
