The Pittsburgh Perl Mongers are pleased to announce The PITTSBURGH PERL WORKSHOP 2007, a two-day, low-cost conference on Saturday and Sunday October 13-14, 2007.
The Pittsburgh Perl Workshop is an annual conference dedicated to the Perl programming language. In 2006, the Pittsburgh Perl Mongers broke new ground by hosting the first Perl Workshop based in the United States. This year, the Perl Mongers are expanding the Workshop to a two-day format. As always, the 2007 Workshop is designed to provide you with a comfortable, exciting, and enjoyable learning experience. It is structured as a series of short lectures, but the atmosphere is low key and engaging – the perfect combination to open your mind and then cram it full of good stuff.
After last year's conference, you gave us feedback – a lot. We listened. This year, we are giving you what you asked for:
- The workshop has expanded to a two-day event to allow for more talks, BOF's, and social interactions.
- We will be adding a one-day course for programmers with little or no Perl experience. This course will be given by a world-class Perl trainer.
- The schedule has become more relaxed to allow for more peer interaction.
- Scheduling of sessions has been improved to maximize flexibility in attending the sessions you want to attend.
- The web site is now powered by "A Conference Toolkit" (ACT)
