Hello everybody,

Today I want to inform you where the Workshop takes place.

Let us recall the 2 workshops in Erlangen at the university. That was in 2008 and 2012. For the social event we were at DATEV. The building was far away from town centre. We went by bus.

In 2012 we got a invitation that the construction of the new IT Campus is pending and it could be possible to have the whole workshop there. I've noticed that.

They have kept the promise. We are in the new IT campus in Fürther Str. 111, 90429 Nürnberg. Directly opposite is the Palace of Justice, where the Nuremberg Trials took place. Here is the website about the venue:

There are some safety requirements.

A DATEV visitor badge you only get when you're logged in as attendee and have paid. So it is clear who has access. To get the DATEV visitor badge a valid identity document is needed. Those who have no identity card or passport have no access. I think that is clear for everybody.

We have restricted areas. If anybody want to go outside this area, this can be the end of the workshop. It should be clear that DATEV security have a very high priority.

Regards from Steffen Winkler.

Call for papers

10/12/15 07:41 by Steffen Winkler (‎STEFFENW‎)

We'd like to invite all IT developers, administrators, users, managers to submit talks for the German Perl Workshop 2016 in Nuremberg.

Lots of time to speak: There are 21 hours available for talks, and we rely on you to fill them.

Topic of your talk: We are interested in talks on software development and engineering, administration, and the social side of it. See for inspiration. We are the German Perl Workshop, but we are also an open source conference. Think about your project, your daily work or what you do in your private time. There are lots of interesting things you can speak about. I hope you can find a topic for your talk.

Communication platform: Join our mailing list. You can find all data of our mailing list on We are here and waiting for your questions. Do not hesitate to ask your questions. We definitely do not bite you. The organizers want to help you and at the end the conference.

Your first talk: You have never talked at a conference? No Problem. For myself, I remember going through about half of my slides before the time was up. That felt bad for me, but the conference got 40 minutes of my ideas. People respect that the most of us are not talking publicly every day. Learn talking on a conference, we help you. For your first talk, please use a 20 minute slot (or a 5 minute lightning talk).

Submit a talk: Please submit your talk at You will be asked to login or sign up before you can do so. Please plan to speak 20 or 40 minutes. If your have more to tell us, split your talk into several 40 minutes slots. For short topics (like introducing your favorite project), the 5 minute lightning talks are ideal.

Language: Feel free to submit talks in English or German.
