DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop 2014 - Call For Speakers

(As posted on dcbpw.org)

Attention Speakers! You are invited to submit talks for the 2014 DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop, which will be held on Saturday May 3, 2014, in Silver Spring, MD.

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 schedule.

Speakers of all levels are welcome! This regional meetup is great for getting your first taste of giving a community talk, sharing projects or topics that you have experience with, or even doing a first run for a talk you'll be presenting at a larger conference such as YAPC::NA 2014 in Orlando! All Perl-related topics are welcome -- from beginner to advanced, from technical to social.

No need to submit formal talks for the Sunday May 4 hackathon -- we'll have more info on that code and learning festival in future updates! And of course -- all are welcome to register for the conference; $25 for early-registration prior to April 1. Free registration for students and the unemployed.

If you have any questions, email us (dcbpw-organizers@googlegroups.com)! We'll even be happy to help you tune your topic.
