2. New Sponsors.

The London Perl Workshop is looking for new sponsors to join with us, this can range from companies who wish to contribute towards the event and the community to companies who merely wish to show their support of the premier event in the UK Perl Community calendar or may wish to hand out promotional material.
If you know a company that would like to be involved with the event then please do not hesitate in contacting Mark.

3. Job Fair.

This year we are hoping to host a job fair at the Workshop that is suitable for companies looking to hire new developers or for those companies who are thinking of running internships/apprenticeships and wish to meet up with the students and future developers who may attend.
If you know of a company seeking developers or wishing to promote their internships/apprenticeships then please contact Mark.

4. Mechandise.

As always we try to keep the spirit of a "free conference" when we think of the London Perl Workshop, which is why, once again there is a range of merchandise available from Spreadshirt.net at this address for you to purchase prior to attending or in a mad bid afterward to show you were there:


(Note: there is more than one page of merchandise, at this time there are three).

If you are thinking of attending the conference then what better way of showing your participation and allegiance than in a snazzy custom item of clothing or merchandise. If you think of an item you would like to see us make available in the shops then make your suggestions and we will see what we can do to accommodate you. Attending the event while not robed in an item from this fantastic collection will forever mark you and you may carry that stigma to your grave.

5. Lightening Talk Bingo.

That incredible man, Edmund von der Burg, has this year decided to run a special Bingo event during the Lightening Talks, there will be at least one prize from one of our sponsors, more details will become available at a later date. Participation will be free except for organisers and speakers who will be banned from participation (unless they let me in on any betting scandals they have going ;) ).

6. Volunteers.

As always I am seeking help from volunteers on the day. If you think you would be willing to help set up the event, carry items, shuttle speakers to talks or time them to prevent the inevitable 'running-over', or operate video capture devices, then please contact Mark.
Also this year my wonderful wife will be sat on registration, but as an added bonus she will be also be attending to our son, Benjamin, if you would be willing to sit at the registration desk and cover for the occasional period in the day then please contact mark.

Don't forget to register for the conference and submit your talk. The competition for most appropriate 40 minute talk that will be the keynote is still wide open.

Until next time, your organiser,

-Mark (mdk)
