  • Allison has made great efforts to present a public face of the TPF external to the conferences held in North America. Europe is currently a hotbed of Perl conferences and workshops, with those in Australia, Asia and South America increasing their prescence. Seeing as 15 out of the 17 members of the steering committee are based in the US, are there plans to ensure that a decent number of non-US conferences and workshops have a representative of the TPF attending?
    • I agree with you on the importance of TPF staying engaged and involved, especially outside North America. In fact, this is one of the first issues I discussed with Allison when she asked me if I'd consider taking on my new role. Personally, I intend to follow her example and attend as many conferences and workshops as I can, both inside and outside North America. I strongly encourage other members of TPF to do the same.

      This won't be easy. Many of us (myself included) will have to finance these international jaunts out of our own pockets; the beneficence and understanding of employers only extend so far. But it's the right thing to do, and it's worth the effort.
