(With my London.pm hat on)

L.pm does occasional day-long tech workshops where speakers, some of
whom are pro perl speakers, present. There's usually so many talks
multiple tracks happen so I would be surprised if there weren't enough
in SF.pm to fill a day. Once you have 50+ ppl showing up, which a
day-long workshop adequately prepared in advance and advertised
(blogs, meetup.com, word of mouth, etc) should _easily_ get, companies
start to take notice as sponsorship opportunities.

The main thing to get is a venue. L.pm has hooked up with universities
in the past but I'm sure there's plenty that'd take 50-100 in the Bay
that'd welcome us for cheap/free in exchange for some recognition.

I'd be very happy to help with this, having been involved in the past.
