30/04/2007 - Disembarkation
The 5th NPW is now over, and judging by the comments, everybody had
a great time. The organizers would like to thank everybody involved:
the volunteers, the attendees, and of course the speakers for making
the Nordic Perl Workshop 2007 such a success.
We are looking forward to seeing you all next year in Stockholm!

NPW2007 day 1 was great; most attendees have arrived, and the talks
are going well.
There are some issues with the wifi, since the venue decided
that today was a good day to move the main firewall, but it look
like it has stabilized for now.
The schedule seems to have gotten a life of its own; to keep up
to date, it's best that you check it yourself.
