  • For completely selfish reasons, I think it would be extremely awesome if the 2009 London Perl Workshop was scheduled to be near in time to YAPC::EU. cog suggested this awesome idea back in 2006 that if many of the Perl Workshops could be scheduled in a similar time frame then people like Paul and I who are visiting YAPC::EU could get around to those others too.

    Paul Fenwick and myself will be in Europe after OSCON up until the end of YAPC::EU (although we'd stay for another week and a bit if your workshop was on the following weekend). We'll try to make it to as many Perl events as we can. ;)

    • I think I disagree (and I did when Cog first mentioned it). A local Perl workshop is good if it engages local Perl users who aren't otherwise part of the community, those who don't make it to full conferences (or at least haven't done yet).

      It's great if those only dabbling with Perl can see a few talks that are pitched at their level. It's splendid if somebody who's never presented at a conference-type-event before feels that it's a sufficiently friendly and low-key environment where they can give it a go
