[ #39290 ]

  We're going to be running an SF Perl Mongers table at the July 2009 OSCON Expo at the San Jose Convention Center, and we're looking for volunteers to help staff the table.

Essentially, we need coverage by 2 or 3 people at all times to hang around the table answering questions -- typically these range from very simple ("When is Perl 6?") to really interesting ("Is perl any good for natural language processing?").

The Expo Hall is only open for two days of the conference:

  Wednesday, July 22:
          10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m
          6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (expo hall reception)
    Thursday, July 23:
          10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Location -

We're breaking that down into three shifts:

    10am to 12:30pm
    12:30pm to 3pm
    3pm on.

We only get 4 exhibitor passes, but anyone can sign up for a free pass to the Expo Hall:

So in effect we can bring in any number of volunteers, but let me know if you think you'd be a good person to sport an "exhibitor" badge.

Interestingly enough, we also get one free session pass. I think it would be terrible if we all ended up fighting over this, so I'm going to take it -- but presuming we can get away with loaning it out to different people, I'd like to make sure that any of the booth volunteers can attend at least one of the sessions.
