09/20/07 Logitech becomes a PPW Contributing Sponsor

The Pittsburgh Perl workshop is pleased to announce that Logitech has agreed to sponsor PPW at the Contributing Sponsor level. This is Logitech's first year as a PPW sponsor.

Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.

With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech's leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.

Last year Logitech acquired Slim Devices, maker of the Squeezebox and Transporter audio players. These products rely on the Perl-based SlimServer, and we are committed to continuing its successful tradition of open source, community-based development. This year, we also launched the Jive software platform, an open source project designed for building new user interfaces to our products.

There is still time to become a sponsor! Please see our sponsors page for more information.
