Announcing the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop - 2006-09-23

The Pittsburgh Perl Mongers are pleased to announce The PITTSBURGH PERL WORKSHOP, a one-day, low-cost conference on Saturday, September 23, 2006. This year's theme is "Perl at Work."

http://pghpw.org/

ABOUT

The Pittsburgh Perl Workshop is modeled after the highly successful Perl workshops held in Europe over the last several years. The day is designed to provide you with a comfortable, exciting, and enjoyable learning experience. The workshop is structured and well organized, but the atmosphere is low key and engaging: the perfect combination to open your mind and then cram it full of good stuff.

LOCATION

http://pghpw.org/location.html

The Workshop will be held at Carnegie Mellon University in the University Center building. There is free, on-campus parking within walking distance. The CMU campus is located in Oakland, part of Pittsburgh's wonderful East End.

REGISTRATION

http://pghpw.org/register.html

Be sure to register during the "Early Bird" period in order to reserve your seat at $20 or less. Registrations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can register online at the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop website.

CALL FOR PAPERS

http://pghpw.org/cfp.html

The theme for this year's Pittsburgh Perl Workshop is "Perl at Work." Perl is a workhorse. Every day, the language toils in unnoticed corners of the world and does all manner of thankless, hard labor in order to make our lives easier. Sessions at the Workshop should reflect this gritty, hard-working side of Perl.

The organizers of the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop invite you to tell us what "Perl at Work" means to you. If you have a hard-working CPAN module, a sweat-inducing case study, a smarter way to get work done with Perl, or anything at all to say about "Perl At Work," we want to hear from you. See the URL above and submit a paper!

Call for Papers closes on Sunday, July 10, 2006.

SPONSORSHIP

http://pghpw.org/sponsors.html

The Pittsburgh Perl Workshop relies heavily on sponsorship to make this event low-cost for attendees. Please consider sponsoring the workshop financially. In return, you can send people to the workshop for free, promote your organization, and get a warm, happy feeling inside. It's a good deal. See the sponsorship fact sheet for more:

[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I have that on DVD even, and I missed them last year because I was in London at the time ironically ;)
[marto]: put me in the mood to listen to this now :)
[Corion]: LanX: Well, grab a shovel :)
[Corion]: Kraftwerk also are still touring (well, only Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider), but I'm too tight fisted to spend EUR 150+ for standing around two hours ;)
[Corion]: Oh. Queen have a new front man. Not really sure...
[marto]: Florian retired some years ago. I have been gifted a ticket to their show in Glasgow as my friends husband can no longer make it
