London Perl Workshop Review

Unfortunately O’Reilly’s Josette Garcia couldn’t be at the London Perl Workshop, so she asked if I could write something about it for her blog.

It took me longer than it should have done, but my post has just been published over at Josetteorama.

Hopefully Josette will be back at next year’s event. She was much missed (although, of course, Alice did a fine job of making up for Josette’s absence).

Modern Core Perl

The London Perl Workshop is in two weeks time. Have you registered yet? There are apparently 200 people signed up already.

I’m going to be there giving a training course in the morning. It’s called Modern Core Perl and it will introduce many of the new features that have been added to the Perl core since version 5.10.

The course is ninety minutes long and attendance is completely free (as it is for all of the workshop). I was planning to write a post encouraging people to sign-up for the course, but it seems that will be unnecessary. I already have twenty people signed up and until I know for sure how big the room is I’ve had to declare the class full as I don’t want to run the risk of people signing up and not being able to fit into the room.

Unfortunately, though, the workshop web site doesn’t really have the concept of signing up for courses. So it’s impossible to actually stop more people signing up for the course. In fact, two more people have signed up since I edited the description to say the course was full.

I hope that the room will be large enough to allow us to let a few more people in on the day, but we will be strict on not overcrowding the room.

I apologise in advance if you want to come to the course but can’t get in. Perhaps you’ll consider Ian’s course instead. Or there will be three or four tracks of other talks going on at the same time.
