Announcing The London Perl & Raku Workshop 2024 (LPW)

22/04/24 10:34 by Lee Johnson

Hey All,

Yes, we're back we'd like to announce this year's LPW:

WHEN: TBC, most likely Saturday 26th October 2024

Please register and submit talks early - it gives us a better idea of numbers. The date is tentative, depending on the venue, but we'd like to aim for the 26th October 2024.

This will be the 20th anniversary of LPW (in terms of years, not number of events). We might try to do something special...

The venue search is currently in progress. The 2019 venue has turned into a boarding school so we can't use that any more due to safeguarding issues. We don't want to go back to the University of Westminster so we are searching for a venue.

If you can help out with the venue search that would be great - does your company have a large enough space to host us? Are you part of a club, organisation, university, school, etc that can provide space? Have you been to an event in central London recently that might be a suitable venue?

Here's roughly what we're looking for. Obviously requirements are a little flexible:

  • Central London (Zone 1)
  • Saturday 26th October 2024
  • Available 9am to 5pm (with access 8am to 6pm)

  • A main lecture hall / room with presentation facilities
    • To seat at least 100 peopleĀ  + With PA system
  • Optional second room, also with presentation facilities
    • To seat at least 35 people
    • Breakout room (optional) / reception / welcome area for stands/registration

  • Video facilities are not required

  • Catering facilities are required
    • Tea, coffee, water, soft drinks, small snacks throughout the day
    • Possibly lunch provided on site with dietary requirement optionsĀ 
      • However if lunch is a significant cost we will leave people to sort that out themselves

Please register, submit talks, think about possible venues, and let us know via email.
