The Facts and Figures: Week One

15/07/13 20:26 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

It has been a week since the announcement of the London Perl Workshop hit the inboxes of all those on the announce list and was first populated across the internets. In the first of a series of weekly reports we look at what has happened in the past seven days in our Facts and Figures news.

Sponsors: We have been happy to announce a new sponsor in the first week and the enticing news is that there should be a few more joining them in next weeks news (as evidenced by the news items today). We would like to firstly say a big hello to AntibodyMX, Magnum Solutions, Shadowcat Systems, the Enlightened Perl Organisation and the University of Westminster who joined us before the announcement last week. Joining them has been Nestoria who have been a long time supporter, sponsor and contributor to the event, it is good to have you along.

Submitted Talks: We have had two talks submitted already:

John Davies has submitted: Bug driven documentation

Mike Friedman has submitted: The Perl API for the Mortally Terrified

Attendees: There are currently 27 people signed up to the conference from 4 countries and 12 user groups. Hello all, make sure you keep reading the news page, and mdk's blog at for on-going details. You can also like us on Facebook.
