On 23 September 2006 the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop will take place at Carnegie Mellon University. The idea is to have a low-cost, one-day conference on the theme of "Perl at Work":

Although the call for talks has officially ended, we know that some excellent would-be speakers need just One More Day to get their proposals in. No problem: If you submit your proposal in next 48 hours, we will extend the deadline for you. Don't delay!

The submission process is refreshingly easy. Just write a quick email and send it to us. The following page shows you how:

Why give a talk? This is an exciting chance to be a part of history. While Perl workshops have had great success in Europe, PPW 2006 will be the first U.S.-based workshop of its kind. Several prominent members of the Perl community, such as brian d foy (co-author of Learning Perl, 4th Edition and Intermediate Perl) and Peter Scott (author of Perl Debugged), will be speaking at the workshop. If you have something to say about “Perl At Work”, shouldn't you be there, too?

This is your event. Seize the day!

Bottom line:

If you are interested in speaking at the soon-to-be-legendary Pittsburgh Perl Workshop 2006, this is your last chance. Get your proposal in NOW! Here's how:

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
