Josh McAdams created a wiki for the Windy City Hackathon, going on Dec 14-16 in downtown Chicago. If you want hostel accomodations, don't wait until the last minute. Ensure your spot by paying $115 for Thursday night through Sunday morning (a much better deal than even a single night in a downtown hotel) through The Perl Review or arranging alternate payment methods with me.
The week before the hackathon Stonehenge is offering open-enrollment Perl classes at the same location. These are the full Stonehenge courses in a compressed-time format that we offer to the public only a couple times a year:
We can also take purchase orders and alternate payment methods for any of there. We can also offer team discounts for people from the same group paying at the same time. Write to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the classes.
