  Dave Rolsky at Italian Perl Workshop 2009 on 2009.07.24 9:23 bepi

Submitted by bepi on 2009.07.24 9:23
Perl News

We are very excited to confirm that Dave Rolsky will be at IPW 2009!
Dave Rolsky (autarch) is well known in the Perl community for his innumerable CPAN contributions: Moose, HTML::Mason, and DateTime to name a few (http://search.cpan.org/~drolsky/ for the rest), and for other projects (JSAN).

We are also proud to be able to invite Dave for his first time to Europe for a Perl event (and first ever time in Europe in fact!).
Moreover Dave will give a World Class day's training on Moose on October 21, 2009 (the day before the conference). This mini-course will be a paid event, and will be expressly for the purpose of covering Dave's flight to Europe and hotel expenses.
The cost for person is likely to be around EUR 100 (with a maximum of 25 participants).

Please get in touch as soon as you can! If you're interested, let us know by sending an e-mail to info@perl.it

  Italian Perl Workshop 2009 guests on 2009.07.07 4:06 bepi

The preparations for this year's Italian Perl workshop are hotting up, and thanks to the sponsors, we have invited some great guest speakers for the international tracks (in English):
  • Tim Bunce, Perl DBI interface author. Tim made not only DBI, but also other important CPAN modules (DBD::Oracle, Devel::NYTProf, responsible for the Perl 5.4.x series), he wrote book published by O'Reilly Media, and he has delivered tutorials and sessions for many years at OSCON and other conferences and workshops.
  • Jonathan Worthington, one of the core developers of the Rakudo Perl 6 compiler and the Parrot Virtual Machine.
  • Thomas Fuchs, a Javascript guru, is the author of the script.aculo.us user interface JavaScript library, a member of the Prototype core team and a Ruby on Rails core alumnus.
  • Amy Hoy, is a user interaction and product design expert and regular speaker at OSCON and other workshop and conferences.

Also we have the opportunity of getting Dave Rolsky (autarch), well known in the Perl community for his innumerable CPAN contributions: Moose, HTML::Mason, and DateTime to name a few.

As Dave lives in the United States, covering his travel costs is expensive...
However, Dave has also suggested that he would be available to give a World Class day's training on Moose. This mini-course would of course be a paid event, and would be expressly for the purpose of covering Dave's flight to Europe and hotel expenses.

All the details are in the announcement. If you're interested, please email info@perl.it.

The IPW 2009 edition will be a great edition, so don't miss it!

For more information see workshop website.

See you

On September 18 and 19, 2008, the Italian Perl Workshop 2008 took place at the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa. It was a huge success; here are some numbers: 2 days of conference, 2 parallel tracks, more than 30 talks, 120 attendees, 20 sponsors, 3 patrons (Comune di Pisa, YAPC::Europe Foundation, Perl Foundation), and many international guests, including: Tim Bunce, Rafaël Garcia-Suarez, Marcus Ramberg and Matt S Trout.
It's been very satisfying for us to hear the positive feedback of guests, speakers, participants (http://www.perl.it/blog/archives/000614.html) and of sponsors (http://conferences.yapceurope.org/ipw2008/news/282).
More in depth: the IPW team worked very hard in order to make this the best Italian workshop ever. In particular we took great care in public relations with our sponsors.
Here are some numbers relating to behind the scenes action :-)

  • € 2000 of budget allocated for guests travel/accomodation
  • event FREE of charge including:
    • 4 quality coffee breaks
    • t-shirt + perl.it freebies (pen, bag and stickers)
    • attendance certificates (on parchment paper)
    • wifi network (under capitve portal)
    • many conference freebies (kindly offered by sponsors)
    • auction (value about of € 5000)
  • speaker's kit including:
    • personal assistant: IPW staff person helped speaker to setup mic and video projector, and with translations (if necessary for English talks) etc.
    • USB Logitech presenter
    • mineral water
    • timekeeping to ensure schedule adhered to, with regular feedback to speaker
  • conference dinner paid for all speakers
  • Companies recruitment sessions
  • professional and pleasant reception staff
  • 1 day introductory Perl course
  • Hotel discounts, lunch discounts etc.
  • local television (http://www.50canale.tv/) reportage
