Good Day to you all.
The London Perl Workshop is now just one month away and so it is time
for the usual prods, kicks and pushes to be sent to those thinking of
speaking, attending or sponsoring to get body parts into motion and
change gear ratios or be left in a sea of shame and lost opportunity.
Already confirmed for this event:
A keynote by Hakim Cassimally and Adrian McEwan - authors of 'Designing
the Internet of Things'.
A workshop of using Arduino and the Internet of Things by the above.
Dave Cross workshop/tutorial on Perl and the Internet of Things
A workshop by Ian Norton on Learning Perl Together
A workshop by Andrew Solomon on Web Development with Dancer2
The Hardware Toys to play with - bring a laptop and see if you can code
on one of our toys to perform
Free Morning Coffee Break with special snacks.
Free Afternoon Coffee Break with cakes.
Evening 'sponsored' Beer in our traditional LPW Social. (see below)
Some important dates:
Last date to sign up for the Internet of Things Arduino Workshop. A
co-sponsored event that costs just £25 to attend (to help towards
purchasing hardware). The actual cost of this event is far higher as
both speakers have been generously sponsored and the Enlightened Perl
Organisation will be picking up the extra £35 on each kit (the kit you
will receive to take home contains both an Arduino and an Ethernet
shield along with many other bits and pieces). This is a fantastic
opportunity and the course is already half filled as there is a maximum
number of places.
Closing date for talk submissions but we will be starting the process of
choosing talks this weekend, so this may change or a valuable chance
lost as other talks whetted our appetites first. Time to submit people,
even if it is a placeholder to make sure you are registering intent.
Last date to register and ensure you are on the 'printed' list of
attendees. Why does this matter? Well we base much of our decisions on
room sizes and talk choices based on those that have registered, and
this year due to us setting some of the scheduling early you will be
able to pre-state what you want to attend a little earlier. It also
helps us with the coffee breaks and beers in the evening.
We are still looking for sponsors to help join in with the 'evening
social', this year we have paid for a new element in a hardware
workshop, sponsored kits and increased university charges. For this
reason we have less available in the pot for the evening. If you want
your company to be part of the social event now is the time to act. We
are also still seeking sponsors to help cover the cost of venue hire and
our special event! We are also looking for vendors who wish to sell
hardware at the event, if you know of anyone who creates IoT hardware
such as Arduinos, Raspberry Pis etc. and they want to come to the
workshop and sell their wares then please have them contact the organisers.
There are a greater number of workshops this year than we have ever held
and this will be an unmissable chance to receive free training whether
you are new to Perl or really keen to learn more about how to use Perl
with hardware devices. If you know of any other list or interested
parties please pass on the details of this mail.
As always Mark is contactable as m(dot)keating(at)shadowcat.co.uk.
