YAPCs, Perl workshops and Monger meetings
As I was trying to buy my flight ticket to the London Perl Workshop I thought I look around if there is some other interesting event on the days before or after. Quickly I landed on Eventbrite and found a couple of interesting talks at The RSA.
As I was already at Eventbrite I checked which Perl events are listed there.
To my surprise there are almost no Perl events listed on Eventbrite.
Maybe if there was a Perl Module for Eventbrite?
Well almost nothing.
The only place where I saw the London Perl Workshop was the Lanyrd web site and there was only one other Perl event there.
So are we surprised people don't see us?
I don't know how big the impact could be but what if all the YAPC and Perl Workshop organizers started to post their events on these sites? Could that help in getting more attention?
What if each Perl Monger meeting was posted there?
What if someone implemented the modules to access the above web sites?
What if someone wrote a script that could be used by all the organizers to update the various event sites?
