- 120 attendees
- 20 sponsors
- job recruitment sessions for participants
- many international guests, among which: Tim Bunce, Rafaël Garcia-Suarez, Marcus Ramberg e Matt S Trout.
Talks slides, video, photos and interviews will be published on perl.it . Stay tuned!
The Workshop will be held in Pisa, in rooms kindly offered by the Computer Science department of the University of Pisa, on September 18-19, 2008.
Registration and participation are free of charge, and includes a coffee-break service, also gratis.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, this year we have been able and honoured to invite a few Perl "celebrities":
- Tim Bunce, author of the Perl DBI interface
- Rafael Garcia-Suarez, Perl 5.10 lead developer
- Marcus Ramberg, Catalyst core developer and release manager
- Matt S Trout, Catalyst core developer, DBIx::Class
The Workshop is aimed at Perl users, professionals and hobbyists alike, but also to those who are just starting out in this language and want to learn its characteristics and culture.
In addition to classic conference-style talks, there will be discussions and debates on topics of interest, proposed by participants and guided by experts.
Even though participation is free of charge, we ask you to register as soon as possible, and confirm your participation: this will help our logistics.
In addition, you will be able to buy (included in the optional conference ticket):
- perl.it gadgets
T-Shirts will be given out, gratis, to everyone!
