Newsletter 3: Hack and Train (formerly known as Slash)

In this newsletter:

1. LPW2010 Hackathon
2. Training: Modern Web Programming in Perl

1. LPW 2010 Hackathon

Tom Doran, known to many of you as the Catalyst release manager and t0m on many IRC channels, has decided to run a hackathon on the Sunday following the conference. You can find more details and how to register here:


Please look at the bottom of this newsletter for more information taken from the eventbrite site. If anyone else wishes to host a hackathon (i.e. if the places fill up on this event) then please let me know. Tom has decided that it will be an open event where people can hack on any project they wish.

2. Training: Modern Web Programming in Perl

Once again the magnificent Dave Cross, under the guise of his Training Company Magnum Solutions (http://mag-sol.com/) will be conducting a training session at the Workshop. The places will be initially offered to students of the university but there will no doubt be room for other attendees as in previous years.

The subject this year is Modern Web Programming in Perl, Dave has indicated that a good percentage will be based around Plack. If you are new to Perl and web programming or new to Plack and Modern Perl development and deployment this class will be a must-see.

The biggest draw is Dave Cross himself an experienced Perl programmer and excellent tutor who commands good rates for his training courses. Once again this year we are presenting a free class for attendees. The class will take 120-180 minutes on the day, more details to be announced.

London hackspace:

On Sunday 6th December, London Hackspace will be pleased to hold a hackathon for any perl hackers who would like to get together and work on projects or continue socialising on the day after the conference. This hackathon doesn't have a specific topic, so anyone working on anything is welcome.

Power, Wifi and space will be graciously hosted by the London hackspace, a non-profit hacker space in central London. This event is free (but very limited capacity), but if you attend, please make a donation to the space for what you think it is worth.


Hope to see some of you there!
