  Welcome to the 2nd Newsletter for the London Perl Workshop. In this 

1. Give a Perler a Home

1. Give a Perler a Home
As I have spoken about before it would be really nice this year if we 
could offer crash space[1] to people who wish to attend the conference 
from overseas or distant locales in the UK and who cannot afford both 
travel and accommodation. I feel that many more people will be able to 
attend and also this would forge new and interesting relationships 
between people who only know each other by reputation or by nickname on 
irc/mailing lists.

Two such people, Ribasushi and Getty, are looking for crash space for a 
couple of nights (night before and night of the conference I believe) 
in/near London so they can attend the conference. If you can put these 
stirling chaps up for a night or two then please add your names to the 
LPW wiki or use a mailing list to coordinate, I am happy to act as 
go-between for those of you who wish to offer in private. Ribasushi and 
Getty can be split and are both toilet trained.

Thanks in advance.

[1] There doesn't literally have to have been a crash at the location 
they are to stay. Beds would be nice, comfy sofas are just as 
appreciated, washing lines are probably a little too satirical.


The conference will be held on Saturday 4th December at the University 
of Westminster's New Cavendish Campus. Please visit the website below

This year's theme is Perl Flavours. Unlike previous years the keynote 
will be decided from the most appropriate 40 minute talk that best fits 
this theme. The proposal deadline is 12th November and speakers will be 
informed on the 15th November. See:
