A change to this year's LPW Date, 3rd -> 24th Nov

29/08/18 08:19 by Lee Johnson

After a few chats at this year's The Perl Conference in Glasgow, and realising that the chosen date for London Perl Workshop 2018 will clash with freenode #live, we decided it would be a good idea to bump the workshop date from Saturday 3rd November to a week later on Saturday 10th November.

However, after speaking to the venue (the usual place of The University of Westminster) this won't be possible due to their prior commitments. So we have decided to push the date back to the "usual" one of the last weekend in November - Saturday 24th.

Having checked a couple of sources the 24th will not clash and this leaves the other potential dates free for people to attend workshops happening then, namely the 3rd November for freenode #live and the 17th November for Barcelona Perl & Friends.

We hope this doesn't affect the plans of anyone who was going to come, and after a straw poll during the first day of lightning talks at TPCiG it seems that bumping the date by a couple of weeks will be of more benefit to those who wanted to attend but wouldn't have been able to (or were going to favour freenode #live).

Announcing The London Perl Workshop 2018

09/05/18 08:41 by Lee Johnson

The London Perl Workshop (LPW) takes place this year on Saturday 3rd Nov at the usual place of The University of Westminster's Cavendish Campus. You are encouraged to submit your talk proposals now, or if you have already feel free to submit another.

Talks may be long (45-60 mins) short (15-20 mins) or very short (lightning talks, 5 mins); however given the feedback after last year's LPW we would prefer, and will probably favour, shorter talks. We would also be pleased to accept proposals for workshops, tutorials and discussions. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 16th Oct.

We would really like to have more rookie speakers this year. If you’d like help with a talk proposal, and/or the talk itself, let us know - we’ve got people happy to be your talk buddy!

Register (it's free!) and submit your talk.

We hope to see you there,

Pete, Rick, Lee and Katherine (the organising team)
