|Venda provide a highly scalable e-commerce platform written in Perl and have generously agreed to organise the location and 'first round' after the conference. Their platform takes advantage of the rapid application development features of Perl to allow them to give their clients a rock solid base from their core application with incredible flexibility to meet individual client requirements.|
|After the success of their previous free training course run in conjunction with the BBC in June, Magnum have kindly agreed to run another free training course in the morning during the LPW. We are initially keeping this open to UoW students only, in order to help promote Perl to new audiences. For full information on Magnum's training courses please consult their website.|
