Hello all you jolly people!

This year we'll be working on two projects!

Presenting Perl [1] aims to make presentations from global Perl events
available in one place, it's kinda like YouTube for Perl presentations

IronMan [2] is intended to serve as a blog agregation service for all
things Perl related providing a window into the Perl community and
it's activities.

Both projects have big and small tasks that are accessible to varying
levels of experience, so don't feel that you can't contribute
something!  We're looking at design, documentation and code, any area
needing work.

If you are interested in attending in person, or wish to attend
virtually then please use the Event Wax sign-up linked to at the top
of this discourse. We hope that as many people as possible will join
in on this day so that we can burn the code trails. Please contact
Mark (mdk) or Ian (idn) for more information and I hope to talk to you
in channel and see you, either physically or meta-physically on the

Please feel free to distribute this information to as wide an audience
