Birmingham.pm World Tour 2008 - Wolves LUG - 23rd April 2008
The next date on The 2008 World Tour sees us once again visiting our friends over at Wolves LUG. Barbie and JJ will be along to present a couple of talks that seem to have gone down very well with previous tour attendees. Talk schedule looks as follows:
Attendance is free, and will be held at Lincoln House Community Centre (WV10 0JB), which is just outside of the city centre. If arriving by train, rather than trying to navigate your way across the ring road, it may be worth spending a couple of quid on a taxi. The event starts at 7.30pm.
Feel free to come along and support and/or heckle.
Lincoln House Community Centre,
Lincoln House, Tremont Street,
Wolverhampton, WV10 0JB.

In early 2006 Birmingham Perl Mongers took to the road to promote the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference, which we hosted at the end of August 2006. We took it upon ourselves to visit several Perl Monger groups around the UK, and proved extremely popular, with several groups asked to come back again, and others asking us to visit them too. In 2007 we visited both Perl Monger and Linux user groups, this time presenting at each groups technical meeting. For 2008 we hope to include several groups we never previous got to as well visiting some old friends.
