The London Perl Workshop 2014 has been announced. It will be at the University of Westminster (the usual location) on Saturday 8th November. That’s a few weeks earlier in the year than it usually is.
The theme for this year is “The Internet of Things”.
You can find out more about the workshop, register and propose talks at the web site. Hope to see many of you there.
Many thanks (as always) to Mark Keating for organising the workshop.
For many years now a regular feature of my training calendar has been the annual public courses that I have run in London in conjunction with FlossUK. Normally these happen in February, but this year I had to postpone them as I was in the USA for a lot of February.
But FlossUK still wanted to do them, so we’ve arranged to run the courses in November instead. There will be two two-day courses which will be held at the Ambassadors Hotel in central London.
For full details (and soon, I hope, a booking form) see the FlossUK web site.
I’m running another Perl School this Saturday (6th April). This time the subject is Object Oriented Programming with Perl and Moose. I ran a two-hour taster version of this course at the London Perl Workshop back in November, but this is the full six-hour version. Tickets are £30 each.
The course is run at Google Campus on the outskirts of the City of London. There’s a full list of topics and a booking form over on the Perl School web site.
It’s a new year, so it’s probably a good time to remind you about some training sessions that I have coming up.
- Perl School 4 is on 9th February. The subject this time is Database Programming with Perl and DBIx::Class. As always, a full day of training costs just £30 and the class will be held at Google Campus in London.
- For the last few years I’ve always run a series of public training courses in conjunction with flossUK (formerly UKUUG) and O’Reilly. This year we’re running two two-courses at the Ambassadors Hotel in Central London. There’s a two-day Intermediate Perl course on 12/13 February and an Advanced Perl course on 14/15 February. You can book for these courses on the flossUK web site.
- The London courses have been going so well that flossUK and O’Reilly have asked me to try running some courses elsewhere in the country. The first location is Manchester where I’ll be running a two-day Advanced Perl course on 17/18 April. Once again, you can book for the course on the flossUK web site.
I hope to see some of you at one or more of these courses.
Six weeks ago I announced that I’d be running a free one-day course called “Modern Perl for Non-Perl Programmers” in August. Places on that course were fully booked in less than a day.
So I’ve decided to run to course again, two months later. It will still be at Google Campus, and the date is Saturday 6th October.
The original course was free, but I can’t afford to do that on a regular basis. I hope you’ll agree that £30 is still a bargain for a day of training.
As last time, most readers of this blog probably aren’t in the target audience for this course, but you might know people who would be interested in the course. Please pass on the link.
