London Perl Workshop 2018 - happening this weekend

There is less than a week left until the 2018 edition of the London Perl Workshop on Saturday the 24th of November.

If you have not signed up but want to come, there is still time to register for your free conference ticket. If you have already signed up, please make sure you have confirmed your attendance and selected a t-shirt size. We can only get a conference t-shirt for you if you've done this by tomorrow (Tuesday) at 12:30 GMT.

Are you already in town on Friday evening? Come to the social event and meet your fellow Perl Mongers. We will meet at The Hope in 15 Tottenham St, W1T 2AJ from 6:30pm in the upstairs room. Drinks at the event are sponsored by Oleeo.

The schedule has now been finalised. We've got an interesting selection of talks this year, with three tracks running mostly in parallel. One track will focus on Perl 5 and general technology associated with software development, including HTTP, DNS and how to go about achieving an ISO 27001 certification. There will also be a track focusing on Perl 6, and finally a smaller track covering the soft skills side of software development at work, including hiring, mentoring and an introduction to Perl for developers working with other languages. Since this year marks the 20th anniversary of the London Perl Mongers, this year's keynote will be an Ask-Me-Anything style panel of former leaders. Please send questions in advance to organisers at for the best chance of them being answered.

Of course all of this would not be possible without our sponsors, which include our Gold sponsors Eligo, Perl Careers and CV Library, our Silver sponsor Oleeo and the many of you who have made a voluntary donation. If you haven’t already and would like to support the community, ensuring there are more free Perl conferences in the future, please don't hesitate to add a donation to your free conference ticket, or chose one of our community support ticket options.

As always, thanks to our sponsors:

- Eligo
- Perl Careers
- CV Library
- Oleeo
- The Perl 6 Community
- Adzuna
