London Perl Workshop: Status Update & 2023

Of course, we would like to hold a workshop in 2023 and want to take this moment to solicit feedback on the previous (2019) one and suggestions for next year. The main questions are thus:

  • Venue: We thought David Game College was a great one, should we use it again?

London Perl Workshop: Platinum Sponsor

The London Perl Workshop was on Saturday, and it was awesome! If you missed it, or you'd like to reminisce, our Twitter feed has pictures through out the day. Hopefully there will be some write ups posted soon.

As well as getting the talk videos live and actioning your feedback (please fill in your survey, it really helps!) we want to say a massive thank you to everyone who made the day such a success. The attendees, the speakers, the venue and our sponsors - without any one of you it wouldn't have been the same, and in particular we'd like to thank our Platinum Sponsor for their support. is a large Perl shop with some of the greatest developers and as a company they sponsor almost all Perl events around the globe to support the Perl community.

London Perl Workshop: Gold Sponsor Eligo

The London Perl Workshop is today! If you can make it, hopefully you have already planned your journey there - please remember we're at a new venue this year. If you're thinking about your journey home, after the event we are going for after drinks, with food provided by our sponsors at the Running Horse in Aldgate. We'd like to thank our last gold sponsor Eligo for their continued support of London Perl events.

Eligo are a niche boutique recruitment consultancy with a team of dedicated Perl Consultants. We live and breathe our markets. In fact we like to think we are as passionate about the sector as those who work within it. If you want proof of it stop by and meet Rick Deller one of our Senior Perl Consultants at LPW today.

London Perl Workshop: Gold Sponsor Pirum

Happy Friday! If you are coming to the London Perl Workshop tomorrow, or even if you can't make it tomorrow but are in London today, you are welcome to join the pre workshop social this evening from 18:30 at The Draft House, Seething Lane.

The first few rounds will be courtesy of our fantastic sponsors, so today we'd like to thank Pirum for coming on board this year as a gold sponsor!

Pirum is a small dynamic FinTech company established in 2000, which provides Software-as-a-service the top-tier financial institutions in Securities Lending throughout the world.

London Perl Workshop: Gold Sponsor Perl Careers

Following a full day of two talk tracks we're happy to say there will be not one, but two after event opportunities to chat with your fellow LPW attendees. The first will be drinks at the event until 19:15, featuring (among other things) craft beer brewed right here in London!

As with everything else, this wouldn't be possible without our sponsors and so we'd like to thank Perl Careers, a long time supporter of LPW for their gold sponsorship.

Perl Careers and it’s buddy CareersJS are a technical focused recruitment consultancy, run by a CPAN & npm contributor with a recruitment background, rather than by a non-technical person. I can understand the skills you're looking to hire for, make sense of your GitHub profile, and offer specific Perl-related career and salary advice. I am very picky about only recruiting for companies I'd want to work at, and placing candidates who I'd want to work with. I'd love to talk to you if you think you might be either.
