Announcing The London Perl Workshop 2018

The London Perl Workshop (LPW) takes place this year on Saturday 3rd Nov at the usual place of The University of Westminster's Cavendish Campus. You are encouraged to submit your talk proposals now, or if you have already feel free to submit another.

Talks may be long (45-60 mins) short (15-20 mins) or very short (lightning talks, 5 mins); however given the feedback after last year's LPW we would prefer, and will probably favour, shorter talks. We would also be pleased to accept proposals for workshops, tutorials and discussions. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 16th Oct.

Videos for London Perl Workshop 2017

In brief, the talks went down well and everyone seemed to enjoy themself. Read on for more!
