  • Peter Scott (Perl Medic, Perl Debugged, Perl Fundamentals (DVD))

Powell's Technical Books is at 33 Northwest Park Avenue in Portland. You can take the MAX Green line (for free) from the Convention Center to NW 5th St and NW Couch St, then walk 4 blocks west to the store. There are other Powell's location, so ensure you are going to the Technical Books location.


I saw this on brian's blog as well. I left a comment there but I'll ask you as well: any room for more? I'll be at OSCON, and I'll come to this event either way. I know my book is getting a little long in the tooth, but I'd be happy to take part in the festivities...
