Today is the first day of October which indicates that there are less 
than nineteen whole days until the final submission date for papers at 
this year's London Perl Workshop are left. If you are going to submit, 
and this includes submitting a lightning talk, then now is the time to 
do so. Don't leave it until the last moment, the longer we see papers 
submitted for the more fondly we think about them.

I am hoping that some of you will consider submitting the much longer 
workshop style presentations. In particular it would be good to see 
beginning workshops in the many successful Perl projects such as 
Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Mojolicious, Rakudo and Dancer, as well as the 
other elements of Perl. If you would like to do a 
presentation/tutorial/training like this please contact Mark as soon as 

Our aim at the workshop is to introduce as many new people to Perl and 
the community as possible and we particularly encourage people who are 
new to the language, and community, to come along and soak up the 

The London Perl Workshop (the United Kingdom's Perl Workshop) will be 
held on: Saturday 24th November 2012 - University of Westminster - 
Cavendish Square Campus. Our theme this year is '25 Years of Perl', now 
is also the time to register for the event so that we have a good idea 
of the number of attendees for the day.

Please ensure you spread the message as far and as wide as possible, 
including sending this mail to any mailing lists or groups you believe 
may be interested. If you know of any news service, online resource or 
other source this news can be distributed to, please feel free to do so 
or to contact Mark with details.

A large number of people have always expressed surprise that the event 
is on and the date, they are also unaware that the event is free to 
attend, with a host of other free initiatives including the training, 
and totally sponsor supported.

Regards, mdk.
