PerlMonks @ PerlCon 4.0?

Is anyone going to the Perl Conference 4.0 in July? I'll be there, and I was thinking it might be cool to have a PerlMonks gathering. Anyone?

    I'll probably mosey on over to the O'Reilly conf, especially since it has more than just Perl (ack! blasphemy!).

    I mean, come on, everyone who's anyone will be there. :-)

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make PC4.0. On a related note, are there any perlmonks that will be going on Perl Whirl ? I'd love to hear reports on how both of these event turn out.

    I don't know if I'll be able to make it. I have to convince my boss not only to give me the time off, but to pay for it! That should make for an interesting conversation. :-)

    Your Humble Servant,
      If you find any winning lines to use on the recalcitrant boss-types, please share your wisdom with us!

      So far, I've had no luck with these:

      • You know, the Perl Conference is coming up...
      • <monotone and bored> I'm sure the Dale Carnegie course is interesting. </monotone and bored>
        <peppy and excited> Do you think Randal Schwartz will be at YAPC? </peppy and excited>
      • Ongoing training is important, don't you think?
      • (And lately)Pleeeeeeaase?

      Russ :-)

        Yes, I'll be at YAPC too, if that's important to you. And so far, I'm "go" for being on the Perl Whirl 2000, a place where I'll get to experience NO NET CONNECTION for a total of 8 days.
      No joy. The conversation was short.
      Can I...

      Ya'll have fun!

    I wish I could, but I just came back from Redwood Shores (CA). Living in Brazil has its downsides, one of them being the price on airplane tickets to the US (~US$650.00 for a round trip). Plus, hotel, car rental, etc, spending a week in the US could easily add up to $2k... Unfortunately my company just can't afford to be sending me all the time.

    Its on my wishlist though! :o(

    There's a chance, albeit slim, that I'll be in San Diego by then. If so, I'll convince my girlfriend to take me ;)

    If Slashdot sends me, I'll go. It's still up in the air.

    I may have to fight vroom to the death to get a ticket from Timothy...

    Well, I am certainly going to be there. In a big way. But be sure to find me before Wednesday night, because I doublebooked myself for Thursday and have to leave early (sigh).
