The hustings are over and all the votes are cast...wait, sorry wrong newsletter. Greetings fellow watchers of all things LPW2010'ey' in this Newsletter:
The speakers who submitted talks for LPW2010 have all now been informed of their talks acceptance, thanks to those of you who have submitted the quality as always was high and the choice of which talks to accept was made pleasurable by the good range of subjects offered. If you have had a talk accepted then please make sure you accept this on the website, their will be a schedule made this weekend so if all those who have received a confirmation email could respond that would be fantastic. If you have submitted a talk and received no email whatsoever (as to whether the talk was accepted or rejected) then please contact Mark immediately.
As mentioned in a previous email there is a superb range of items for sale at:
I urge you to order soon to avoid the disappointment of the order arriving long after the event has finished. Please note that there are three pages of items and the colours can be customised to suit ones mood. The London Perl Workshop is a free event supported entirely by the sponsorship of the Perl community so we do not supply a conference t-shirt except through this method of buy-your-own-and-get-the-colour-and-size-you-like promotion. The items will be available for a limited time after the event and then consigned to the lost bucket of time, so don't miss this chance to own some singular apparel.1
That's all for this rather brief newsletter, until next time
-Mark (mdk) - extreme-overlord-of-organising
1 Those of you not in one of these magnificent items of apparel will surely feel disappointed on the day when you are out-dressed by a small child :).
The conference will be held on Saturday 4th December at the University of Westminster's New Cavendish Campus. Please visit the website below for more information and don't forget to log in/register for the conference:
