The preparations for this year's Italian Perl workshop are hotting up, and thanks to the sponsors, we have invited some great guest speakers for the international tracks (in English):
  • Tim Bunce, Perl DBI interface author. Tim made not only DBI, but also other important CPAN modules (DBD::Oracle, Devel::NYTProf, responsible for the Perl 5.4.x series), he wrote book published by O'Reilly Media, and he has delivered tutorials and sessions for many years at OSCON and other conferences and workshops.
  • Jonathan Worthington, one of the core developers of the Rakudo Perl 6 compiler and the Parrot Virtual Machine.
  • Thomas Fuchs, a Javascript guru, is the author of the user interface JavaScript library, a member of the Prototype core team and a Ruby on Rails core alumnus.
  • Amy Hoy, is a user interaction and product design expert and regular speaker at OSCON and other workshop and conferences.
Also we have the opportunity of getting Dave Rolsky (autarch), well known in the Perl community for his innumerable CPAN contributions: Moose, HTML::Mason, and DateTime to name a few.

As Dave lives in the United States, covering his travel costs is expensive...
However, Dave has also suggested that he would be available to give a World Class day's training on Moose. This mini-course would of course be a paid event, and would be expressly for the purpose of covering Dave's flight to Europe and hotel expenses.

All the details are in the announcement. If you're interested, please email

The IPW 2009 edition will be a great edition, so don't miss it!

See you
