New class in Berlin...this Friday

Further information on my German speaking tour...

In addition to the talk I will be giving this Thursday evening,
we will now also offer a free full-day training class in Berlin.

Specifically, we will be running my popular Technical Presentation class
from 9:30 to 17:00 at Helmholtzstraße 2-9, 10587 Berlin.

As we can only accommodate at most…

World Tour of Germany

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Frankfurt Perl Mongers, next week I will be doing a lightning tour through Germany.

On Monday September 10th, I'll be kicking off in Frankfurt, talking about functional programming in Perl all day, and in the evening about my latest Perl modules and the epic three-year saga of how they came to be.

On Tuesday 11th, I'll be in Erlangen at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität, speaking about Transparadigm programming.

On Wednesday 12th, I travel to Dresden, where I'll be explaining how to have fun with dead languages.

And on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th, I'll be in Berlin, giving an evening talk (topic yet to be announced) as well as a full day class on the best new features added to Perl in the past decade.

All these events are absolutely free (thanks again to Frankfurt.pm!) and open to anyone interested in Perl, in multiparadigm programming, in necrolinguistics, or just in having a good geeky time.

If you're nearby (or even far away, but with a fast car and access to the autobahn!) we'd love you to join us at any of these events. The arrangements are still being finalized in some places, and the tour website will be updated as we have more detail. Meanwhile, for more information feel free either to contact me directly, or to get in touch with your local Perl Mongers in each city.

I hope to see you there,

A decade of classes in Lausanne

I'll be back in Lausanne again this May...my tenth visit to UNIL and my second to EPFL. Both of these prestigious institutions were founded well before my own country became an independent nation (and UNIL actually dates back to 50 years before the first European even set foot on the Australian continent).

To celebrate a decade of visiting lectures at the University, we're going to offer a rare public performance of my classic ="https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/2018-05-de…

The Perl Conference in Amsterdam

I'm delighted to be attending The Perl Conference in Amsterdam in just over a week's time.

We'll be kicking off the event with two days of public training courses. I'll be offering a full-day class on Perl 6's awesome regexes and grammars on Monday August 7, and then my popular Presentation Aikido class on Tuesday August 8.

In addition to my own two events, brian d foy and Jeff Goff are also offering some great classes in Perl 5 or Perl 6...so you're guaranteed some first-rate training, whichever course you choose. All the classes are just €150 per day (including l…

Not your great-great-great-great-great-grandmother's Perl

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'll be giving a free public lecture
this week in Olso. It will be my "400 Years of Perl 6" talk, and will be
held at Kulturhuset, Youngs gate 6, Oslo at 6pm on Wednesday 24 May.

I hope to see you there.
