Alpine Perl Workshop 2016

This year, Austrian and Swiss Perl Monger groups join forces to host the first Alpine Perl Workshop, taking place at the University of Innsbruck on 2nd and 3rd September 2016 (that’s a week after YAPC::Europe). Attendance is free, though we do offer a voluntary business tariff (90€).

We are currently looking for Sponsors and Speakers.

Registration and Call for Papers is open:

Please contact us if you like to volunteer with the website design.

Call for Papers

We are looking for talks about Perl 5, Perl 6, CPAN, other Perl-related topics, not-so-much-Perl-related topics and other interesting stuff. We offer 20 and 40 minutes slots, but prefer two shorter talks to one long. There will also be lightning talks (5 minutes).

Talks can be in English or German, preferably in the language you feel more comfortable in. As we expect some guests who might not speak German, it would be a good idea to provide English slides if you plan to speak German. But please consider that the majority of attendees will be German speakers (if we consider schwiizerdütsch, tirolerisch and even wienerisch as German..)

Please submit your talks via the website. Deadline for talk submission is 31st July 2016.

Now, we need you, even in case your are not attending.

Larry Wall will answer your questions in a Q&A session on Friday at 10:50 hrs CEST.
