Toys, toys, toys...

04/11/14 21:30 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

If you have been watching the tweets about this year's London Perl Workshop by our chief organiser, Mark Keating (@shadowcat_mdk), you may have seen him announcing images of some of the fun things we will have to play with at this year's conference.

Some of our attendees will be receiving high-quality Arduino training on the very-fully-booked workshop, and many people will be jealous of them. However for those of you who are not in the Arduino workshop you can head on over to the cafeteria area in the Lower Ground floor next to Registration where Tom Bloor will be hosting the Toys.

We have a range of robotic items for you to play with and maybe to get working with a Perl module or two. You will need to have the latest Arduino software:

Arduino Software

and the Perl that you want to use, though we hope to have a local CPAN distribution with us.

We have:

* 3 MeArms from the people at Phenoptix - powered by an Arduino
* 1 Arduino Robot
* 2 Bump and Go robots (Arduino)

We also hope to have:

* A 3D printer (Mendel Max)
* Microslice Laser cutter/engraver (Kickstarter Edition)

For those of you who just wish to push buttons and play, there will be competitive mini football using our football robot teams 2-10 players (1 to 5-a-side) and our very own remote controlled minion Dave (unless he gets loose and starts to invade the talks).

Make sure you plug your smile in and head down to join in with the maker fun.

Pre-Conference Social

04/11/14 21:20 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

Each year at the London Perl Workshop we appoint a Czar, usually the London Perl Mongers Czar do arrange the pre-conference meeting. This year the dates of the workshop are very close to the LPM monthly meeting and, wonderful folks that they are, as such they have rearranged their meeting to coincide with the pre-conference social on the Friday evening.

As Tom Hukins writes:

[This month's] "meet in the Barrowboy and Banker, a large Fuller's pub near London Bridge:

Barrowboy_And_Banker, SE1_9QQ

Open Street Map

I'll arrive some time between 6 and 6.30 in the evening, but please arrive whenever suits you. I'll have a stuffed camel with me to help you spot us. We don't have any reserved space in the pub, but it's big enough that we'll certainly find room.

The pub is a short walk from London Bridge mainline and underground station, and a pleasant walk across the bridge from Monument.

Our social meetings are open to anyone who wants to talk about Perl and related things regardless of their level of knowledge. This meeting gives you the added bonus of meeting the speakers other attendees from outside London before Saturday's workshop."

We look forward to seeing you there on Friday, 7th November from 18:30 onwards..

Geek University Join the Sponsors

03/11/14 12:30 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

Attendees at the London Perl Workshop over the last few years will have noticed an annual workshop on Dancer and Perl given by Andrew Soloman. Andrew has been a constant supporter of the event and has always supplied his time and expertise to us.

This year Andrew is launching the Geek University to coincide with the London Perl Workshop and as part of that will be offering free 'limited time' places to those students who attend his, and Ian Norton's class:

Learn Perl with Geekuni. Geekuni is an institute providing online courses for learning to develop software using Perl. Every concept is presented in the context of a hands-on exercise and the completion of the course is a fully functional piece of software. Geekuni’s Perl courses take you all the way from writing a simple 'Hello World' script through to developing a search engine and an online game.

With immediate feedback, the community of students and a mentor, the Geekuni student can rapidly acquire real-world Perl coding skills. Each course provides a certificate of completion and a course description clearly defining the skills attained with a good job fit. For a 3 day free trial go to:

Geek University

Perl 6 is currently being developed by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. You can help too. The only requirement is that you know how to be nice to all kinds of people (and butterflies). Go to #perl6 ( and someone will be glad to help you get started.

This year we are unfortunate in not having a Perl6 track, however prominent members of the community will be in attendance to support the event and discuss the latest developments in the Hallway Track. Make sure to seek them out and find out what is new in the fast-changing Perl6 and Rakudo worlds.

Perl Careers has joined the 2014 London perl Workshop as a room sponsor. This is the first year that Perl Careers has sponsored the event and we are happy to welcome them on board.

Perl Careers - Perl recruitment done right

Perl Careers is a Perl-focused recruitment consultancy, run by a CPAN contributor with a recruitment background, rather than by a non-technical person.

I can understand the skills you're looking to hire for, make sense of your GitHub profile, and offer specific Perl-related career and salary advice.

I am very picky about only:

  • Recruiting for companies I'd want to work at
  • Placing candidates who I'd want to work with
  • I'd love to talk to you if you think you might be either.

In any case:

If you're a candidate and you'd like a second pair of eyes on your CV or résumé, want a confidential run-down on a company you're thinking of applying for (whether or not we work with them), want some recommendations on what employers are looking for, or want to know if you're being paid properly, I'd be happy to have an informal chat.

If you're a hiring manager and you'd like some advice on your job ads, some thoughts on free and paid channels for advertising for candidates, guidance on market salaries, or if you're non-technical and just need some help fleshing out what your actual requirements are, I'd be happy to have a commitment free chat.

Most of the candidates I place weren't actively looking for roles, and weren't available to traditional recruiters.

Many of the most rewarding companies to work for aren't actively looking to hire, but if a recruiter who understands the candidate's strengths and the company's needs puts them together, they'll find a place.

You can email me at:

Pete will be in attendance at the event on the day so please make sure to seek him out and say hello, thank you and see if he can help you.

Exonetric join as Sponsors

09/10/14 11:30 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

Alongside this, we provide a unique FreeBSD jail-based hosting service, now offering FreeBSD jails with 1TB of online storage for 30GBP/month+VAT.

We provide consulting for individual projects and reliable hosting services. We provide software development for Internet-facing infrastructure, general purpose Sysadmin skills for in-house projects or for systems outside the Exonetric network. Exonetric also gladly provides support for a variety of Open Source projects.

It is great to have Exonetric back with us in 2014

LPW Latest News

03/10/14 16:33 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

Good Day to you all.

The London Perl Workshop is now just one month away and so it is time for the usual prods, kicks and pushes to be sent to those thinking of speaking, attending or sponsoring to get body parts into motion and change gear ratios or be left in a sea of shame and lost opportunity.

Already confirmed for this event:

A keynote by Hakim Cassimally and Adrian McEwan - authors of 'Designing the Internet of Things'. A workshop of using Arduino and the Internet of Things by the above. (see below) Dave Cross workshop/tutorial on Perl and the Internet of Things A workshop by Ian Norton on Learning Perl Together A workshop by Andrew Solomon on Web Development with Dancer2 The Hardware Toys to play with - bring a laptop and see if you can code on one of our toys to perform

Free Morning Coffee Break with special snacks.

Free Afternoon Coffee Break with cakes.

Evening 'sponsored' Beer in our traditional LPW Social. (see below)

Some important dates:

17th October Last date to sign up for the Internet of Things Arduino Workshop. A co-sponsored event that costs just £25 to attend (to help towards purchasing hardware). The actual cost of this event is far higher as both speakers have been generously sponsored and the Enlightened Perl Organisation will be picking up the extra £35 on each kit (the kit you will receive to take home contains both an Arduino and an Ethernet shield along with many other bits and pieces). This is a fantastic opportunity and the course is already half filled as there is a maximum number of places.

24th October Closing date for talk submissions but we will be starting the process of choosing talks this weekend, so this may change or a valuable chance lost as other talks whetted our appetites first. Time to submit people, even if it is a placeholder to make sure you are registering intent.

31st October Last date to register and ensure you are on the 'printed' list of attendees. Why does this matter? Well we base much of our decisions on room sizes and talk choices based on those that have registered, and this year due to us setting some of the scheduling early you will be able to pre-state what you want to attend a little earlier. It also helps us with the coffee breaks and beers in the evening.

Anytime We are still looking for sponsors to help join in with the 'evening social', this year we have paid for a new element in a hardware workshop, sponsored kits and increased university charges. For this reason we have less available in the pot for the evening. If you want your company to be part of the social event now is the time to act. We are also still seeking sponsors to help cover the cost of venue hire and our special event! We are also looking for vendors who wish to sell hardware at the event, if you know of anyone who creates IoT hardware such as Arduinos, Raspberry Pis etc. and they want to come to the workshop and sell their wares then please have them contact the organisers.

There are a greater number of workshops this year than we have ever held and this will be an unmissable chance to receive free training whether you are new to Perl or really keen to learn more about how to use Perl with hardware devices. If you know of any other list or interested parties please pass on the details of this mail.

As always Mark is contactable as m(dot)keating(at)

Sponsored Arduino Workshop

22/09/14 09:36 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

It is our pleasure to announce that this year we will be presenting a Sponsored Arduino Workshop with part-sponsored equipment. Adrian McEwan and Hakim Cassimally will present a 4 hour workshop (split into two parts) focussing on the Arduino and Internet of Things.

Collaborate with other attendees or work by yourself on, for example:

  • more electronics, wiring up a more complicated input/output from our goodie bag
  • more client code: play with C++ on the Arduino side
  • more server code: extend the basic PSGI you connected to earlier into a full featured Cat/Ox/Mojolicious app
  • more Perl interfacing: play with Device::Firmata, Device::Arduino::LCD, or Device::WebIO

As part of this workshop all attendees will leave with an Arduino Uno, Ethernet Shield and various small components. The cost of these components is close to £60 per kit; but thanks to generous sponsorship the attendees who sign up to this will only be charged £25 per person.

To sign up to this you must contact Mark Keating at Email Mark or Claire Jackson Email Claire and confirm your participation. They will give you a link of how to pay. Payment *must* be in advance and numbers will be limited to 15 persons. We recommend you sign up early.

We also love Perl because it's so easy to teach. Our internship program brings on university students or recent graduates from around the world to work with us for 3 to 18 months - helping train the next generation of Perl programmers.

This year we started up the Nestoria Dev Blog at, so if any of the above sounds interesting please subscribe and leave us some comments.

If you're interested in joining our team check out our jobs page. "
