We are also proud to have Curtis "Ovid" Poe as a guest speaker. Among other things, he is the author of the Beginning Perl and Perl Hacks books and helps expats work in Perl jobs with his company All Around the World.

You programm in Perl or teach the use of Perl? You have new ideas, a great project or a thrilling story to tell about the use of Perl? Then you're right at the German Perl Workshop 2014!
We offer: the German Perl Workshop is the largest German speaking event about Perl. It is the right platform for your idea, your project or your story. In 2014 the German Perl Workshop will take place from March 26th to March 28th at the "Kulturzentrum FAUST Warenannahme" in Hannover. About 130 attendees where at the 2013 workshop.
We are searching for: Your idea. Your project. Your story. We are looking for challenging presentations for our program. Those might be Lightning Talks 5min), short presentations (20 minutes) or long lectures (40 min). If you search for suggestions for lecture topics, try looking through the FAQ (german).
Please submit your paper proposals on the website. The submission deadline is December 22nd, 2013! Your abstract should be about 2000 characters (which are about 30 lines with 72 columns) that describe the subject, what is particularly interesting in your approach and why Perl is the language of choice in this case. You get a notification whether your paper has been accepted or not on January 10th, 2014.
Who we are: This year, the workshop is organized by the Hanover Perl Mongers. The Perlmongergruppe is one of the most active in Germany and meets every two weeks. Learn more about our regular meetings on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Hannover_pm and http://hannover.pm.
The presentations and participants are the heart of our workshop. We are looking forward to seeing you - as a participant and as a speaker.
Another quick update. We're in the middle of communicating to our (possible) sponsors. Lots of paperwork to do :)
As I already wrote on Hannover.pm gathering v21 (German) we're planing to announce the approximate ticket price within the next weeks. The final ticket price will be available in January 2014 at the latest.
We're happy to announce that our advance notice about our new ACT design for GPW 2014 now officially reached the production system. Have a look at the German Perl Workshop 2014 homepage and feel free to comment the new design below.
Just a quick update. We're not only enjoying the great summer, but also working on a more contemporary design for our website. The current looks were inherited from the late 90s. Granted, we're just the proverbial programmers without much design skill, but the web is full of inspiration.
So look forward to a better-looking and hopefully more user-friendly website in the coming weeks.

In my last post I had promised to write an update on the status of the GPW 2014 in May. It is only a minor update, but here it is.
We are happy to announce that everything is working out great so far. We've found a really cool venue. It's pretty central and will fit up to 200 perl hackers comfortably. We have also made progress on getting the talks on video.
Regarding the social event we are still in the finding phase and do not have any concrete information yet.
The progress on the official Act website is good, too. I will be online at the beginning of June.

An official act.yapc.eu website is currently in the making and will be published in early June. Give us some time to understand and fully configure its back end.
The gpw2014 will take place from March 26th to 28th 2014 (Wednesday to Friday). The CeBIT will take place from March 11th to 15th, the Hannover Messe will take place from April 7th to 11th. We're smack-dab in the middle of those two big fairs, but hotel rooms will be affordable during that week.
I'll blog about the gpw2014 at least every month to keep you informed. But please also have a look at the official act website for major news.
