We will not have a devroom this year at FOSDEM (
https://fosdem.org/2013/ ) because the organisers thought it would be
honest to give it this year to the Python people. Huh what? Well,
yeah, last year Perl did have a devroom and Python did not, so we
decided to turn that around this year.
I applied again for a booth with 2 tables. No response yet (decision
will be made next week). If we get the booth, the Dutch and Belgian
Perl Mongers will be there. Liz and I will be there with our camel
and our library of Perl books. And a lot of promotional
material. And several German Perl Mongers already promised to come as well.
Anyway... Indeed, FOSDEM is a great place to show the greatness of
Perl to other people. FOSDEM is the largest open source event, even
larger than OSCON. Admission is free.
