See you there!
Following is the original announcement and invitation:
Booking.com, NLUUG, and SPPN invite the Open Source community to a lecture
by Damian Conway. Damian is an extraordinary speaker from Australia: his
knowledge is renowned and, whatever the subject, he tells an enthusiastic
story like no other can.
Tuesday 10 March, 6pm to 8pm
Theater Pathé Tuschinski, Reguliersbreestraat 26-28 Amsterdam
Free entrance, no registration
Once a year, Damian travels through Europe. During his visit to Amsterdam
last year, he had an audience of over 200 excited geeks. This year he
will present two talks:
* In "Instantly Better Presentations" Damian will demonstrate and explain
seven simple ways to give more interesting and more effective technical
presentations. In other words, it's a tech talk about giving better
tech talks by a guy who gives tech talks for a living.
* After 15 years of development, the Perl 6 programming language will be
officially released later this year. Like its predecessor Perl 5,
it has incorporated many original ideas and openly borrowed great
concepts from other languages. In "Everyday Perl 6", Damian will show
how Perl 6 builds upon, and considerably improves, the features and
syntax of Perl 5.
Afterwards, we'll have an informal reception in Café Amstelhoek, sponsored
The event is sponsored by Booking.com, NLUUG, and SPPN.
Organized by Sawyer X and Mark Overmeer
