As in previous years, by default talks are 20-25 minutes, which we've found is a sweet spot for most topics. We get a great variety -- enough to get a dose of newness and not overwhelm. We also welcome proposals for more tutorial-style talks of around 50 minutes. We'll take the talks and build out a two-track…

The 2nd Annual DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop is almost upon us! In case you haven't heard about it, we'll be having the Workshop in Baltimore this Saturday April 20, and have extra trainings on Sunday April 21.
We have room for more attendees -- even day-of registration is ok, in case you wake up Saturday morning and think to yourself "hey! I could be hanging out with awesome perl nerds right now! WHAT AM I THINKING?! Also where did I leave my hat?"
We have a great schedule of talks …
On April 20, 2013 we'll be having another DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop! Like last year, this will be a 1-day, 2-track conference celebrating all things Perl! The venue is very close to the train station in Baltimore, so it should be pretty easy to get to.
Now is your chance to submit a talk -- we're looking for either something you think is fun or interesting or useful for our main track, and tutorials for our second track. If you're looking to get some experience giving a tech talk this is a great way to do it... and for the tutorials …
At tomorrow's DC.pm meeting I'll be giving a talk similar to one I gave a long time ago at Phoenix.pm - a behind-the-scenes look at AJAX, targeting beginners. We'll discuss the history and cultural norms (aka Best Practices), as well as diving briefly into what is really going on (watching HTTP dumps). All wrapped up by "ok, now go use JQuery", though I suppose I shouldn't reveal the punchline.
Oh, and of course with Live Coding and using perl for the server-side bit :)
Come one come all!
