MaxMind is sponsoring the Perl Toolchain Summit

The Perl Toolchain Summit (PTS) is happening this week in Marlow, on the banks of the River Thames, in the UK. Most of the attendees will gather on Wednesday evening, with the real business kicking off at 9am on Thursday morning. For the next four days 32 Perl developers will be working intensively on the tools that all Perl developers rely on.

Attendees log their activities on the wiki, and blog posts will appear during and after. You can see some of what goes on in semi real-time on twitter, via the #pts2019 hashtag.

We're extremely grateful to MaxMind, who once again are a Gold Sponsor for the PTS. The attendees are brought together from around the world, and we're only able to do this with the support of companies from our community, like MaxMind.
