Perl Mentoring at OSCON

For those of you attending the Perl Conference #6 (or Open Source Conference), there is a golden opportunity to get some free coaching and consultation on your work. A Birds-of-a-Feather session on "Perl Mentoring/Code Reviews" will be given for the third year running. Some of the top Perl People will be on hand as resident experts to advise you on your own Perl projects.

Here's how it works: You bring some Perl code (ideally at most 3 pages, as a printout, or on a laptop, handheld, or floppy) and receive specific advice which would normally cost a large amount of money in consulting fees. Feel free to ask for advice on anything from style to improving efficiency.

This is *one-on-one* coaching: No spectators, no audience, no distractions; just the kind of personal mentoring, targeted to yourspecific application, from some of the best people qualified to give it.

Time spent with the expert will depend on supply and demand.

Date: Thursday 7/25
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Grande Ballroom A in the East Tower

    And when you've had enough code review that night, pop on down to the lobby bar, where we're throwing the "biggest party ever" at TPC.

      Oh, man, merlyn, I hate to tell you, but according to this:

      Special Condition

      From April 16, 2002 to August 31, 2002 the club lounge has been closed due to renovations. Breakfast will be available in Harbor's Edge Restaurant.

      Like, who wants breakfast, anyway?
