Events I’m Attending
London Perl Workshop
Date: 30th November
Venue: Westminster University’s New Cavendish Campus
The London Perl Workshop is a free one-day conference in central London, UK. LPW is the UK’s Premier Perl Event and so is also known as the United Kingdom Perl Workshop (UKPW). The theme for the London Perl Workshop will be Decadon: A Decade of the London Perl Workshop. It will focus on the past ten years of the London Perl Mongueurs and the London Perl Workshop, and will focus on the manner in which Perl is used in the commercial world and the strength of Perl for development in an enterprise environment; we would also like to see talks on the usage of Perl in the past 25 years and the evolution of the environment. You can use any aspect of Perl such as Camelia, Rakudo, Raptor, etc. Speakers are invited to talk on any subject that relates to this theme, though we will also accept talks on other subjects.
Date: 4th-5th December
Code Mesh, the Alternative Programming Conference, focuses on promoting useful non-mainstream technologies to the software industry. The underlying theme is “the right tool for the job”, as opposed to automatically choosing the tool at hand. By bringing together users and inventors of different languages and technologies (new and old), speakers will get the opportunity to inspire, to share experience, and to increase insight. Via presentations and case studies, we aim to raise awareness and extend the knowledge of all participants, mainstream and non-main stream users alike.
