I 100% agree.
It's however easy enough to "infiltrate" at more generic conferences and
show something about Perl. I do it every year at an Open Source Day in
Italy, which has an attendance mostly made of IT university students
(300 or so), and it's always a good success: people like what they see,
and they come and ask me questions.
Sadly I haven't been able to speak this year, because the event was
scheduled the same day of London Perl Workshop: I was invited though,
which maybe means that also the organizers liked the Perl talks enough
to ask for more.
We should maybe look for more of these events and come out with topics
interesting enough to make the attendees think "oh, that's cool, let me
have a better look at Perl".
