You can also get audio and video of the first session on both Blip.tv and Google video. There's also an RSS feed that you can subscribe to if you want to know when the remaining three sessions are released (over the next couple of weeks). I'm told that this feeds links to "enhanced podcasts" of the presentation - but not being an iGeek I have no idea what that means.
Thanks to Jonathan Tweed at the BBC for the work he is putting in on these recordings.
The latest development version of File::Path (version 1.99_02) is winging its way around the world to a CPAN mirror near you. It needs to be tested on as wide a variety of platforms as possible. This includes Windows, VMS, OS/2, QNX, NFS file systems, AFS and anything else you can lay your hands on.
Proposal Submission Deadline: Sunday, 27th May 2007, 23:59 (CET)
Just a quick note to let you all know that the deadline for submitting talk proposals for this year's YAPC::Europe is rapidly approaching.For some ideas on talks and last-minute discussions see our wiki.
More information on how to submit a talk can be found on our website.
Speakers do not have to pay the attendance fee, and will receive some special goodies!
If you never did a talk (at a YAPC, or in general), we strongly encourage you to give it a try! The organisers will try to help newcomers with their talks, e.g. by proofreading the presentations.
We're waiting for your proposals!
The deadline to submit Hackathon proposals for this year's YAPC Europe in Vienna is just around the corner. Please do not forget to submit your proposals by Sunday, 13th May 2007.
The Call for Papers deadline is less than 3 weeks away from today.
The theme for this year's conference is "Social Perl", which we hope will inspire submissions for this and related topics. If Perl has helped you or your company to get people together, or if you can report how Perl is "social" to other programming languages, or how Perl may profit from inspirations from other languages, we'd like to hear about it. Although this is our main topic for the conference, it will not be the only one, and as such we will also be accepting talks on just about any theme.
Types of talks include 20 or 40 minutes talks, 60-90 minute tutorials, or 3 hour Hack-a-thons, BOFs or Workshops. There are still some slots free!
Hope to see you in Vienna, on behalf of Vienna.pm
So I've moved all the content to perl-qa.hexten.net and set it up so that only registered users may edit. It's a shame to have to restrict access in that way; certainly we'll get fewer drive-by contributions as a result. On balance it's better than the message that a spam-riddled quality (quality!) wiki sends I think.
Please update bookmarks / links accordingly.
You can get more details (and can sign up) at http://london.pm.org/teach-in/.
I'll be running the training, so I'll be happy to answer any questions, but note that this is _not_ a course for beginners. You'll need to already understand things like references and writing modules in order for the course to be worthwhile.
Update: Registration is now closed. We sold out in 48 hours. I guess it's true what they say - Perl really is dead :-)
