  • New England Perl Workshop never got off the ground. Maybe someday.
  • Oooh lovely data breakdown.
  • As verified by this link [].
    • Thank you for the link, which I couldn't find when looking for information about this hackathon. I've now updated the file.

  • The Scandinavian and Nordic Perl Workshops are the same - it just changed name after the first year.
    • Of course. I'm not sure how to keep the information about the different names/original names, though. Maybe an "alias" key? That would allow me to keep French name for the French Perl Workshop.
  • For the Act-hosted events, maybe you could add attendance data (registered vs. arrived) and talk data (number of talks, speakers, days, etc.)? Date distribution might be interesting too. The last two years, I think there have been Perl events every month somewhere in the world. Thanks for pulling this together.
    • Yeah, date distribution is on my list of "cool stuff to graph". Eric has been joking for a while that there is no "conference season" anymore. I wanted to check this.

  • I know this post is specifically NOT about TPC/OSCON but I was wondering just the other day about the history of The Perl Conference. I wasn't able to find much info by searching. For example, was it always in Portland?

    Anyone have links I could check out?
    • I don't have any links for you, but I can answer your specific question. TPC/OSCON wasn't always in Portland. For its first six years it wandered around California. The first two were in San Jose, the next two in Monterey and the next two in San Diego.
