The Chicago Perl Mongers and The Perl Foundation are proud to  
announce the Fall 2006 Chicago Hackathon, the weekend of November  
10-12, 2006 in suburban Crystal Lake, IL. It will be a round-the- 
clock weekend of programming on Perl-related projects with your  
colleagues in the open source community. Dozens of programmers from  
the open source community in the midwest, as well as others from  
around the US, will be getting together to share ideas, work on code,  
and move their Perl-related projects forward.

The participants set the agenda for what we'll be working on, but  
Perl 6 and Parrot are already on the roster of projects. Chip  
Salzenberg, pumpking for the Parrot project, will be on hand to help  
with Parrot and Perl 6. Andy Lester will also be driving some Parrot  
maintenance tasks, and other midwest programmers will be working on  
their own projects. There's sure to be something interesting for  

Participation in the hackathon costs nothing. The Perl Foundation is  
even providing hotel rooms at a special rate if you want to spend the  
night. Even if you're in the area for just an hour, stop by, grab a  
snack or some pizza and talk with other people interested in Perl.  
You might contribute more than you think just by talking with other
