Fall Conference Season, 2018

Fall Conference Season, 2018

In the Northern Hemisphere the trees are turning colorful and it’s well into the Fall Conference Season for 2018. Although it’s Fall from our perspective, we’ll cover conferences from both hemispheres…but so far the ones we’re aware of are all from the Northern half.

We’ll start with a few recaps of conferences from the last few months, and then list the upcoming conferences and workshops. For prior coverage, see our Roundup of articles on The Perl Conference, Glasgow, 2018.

Recaps

Bennie recalls her time staffing the RPerl booth at The Perl Conference, Glasgow, 2018, starting with an explanation of what RPerl is, an encounter with Larry, and a live demo: Day 1Day 2Day 3.

Jim Brandt, president of The Perl Foundation, tells us about the foundation’s presence at OSCON 2018 in Portland, Oregon, where Josh McAdams staffed the TPF booth: TPF Notes from OSCON 2018.

Upcoming Conferences

2018-11-17, Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona Perl & Friends is a free one-day workshop happening next month, organized by Barcelona Perl Mongers.

2018-12-15, Tokyo, Japan. The Perl entrance ceremony (that’s a Google translate phrase that is likely imprecise) is a study group for beginners. This appears to be a series of monthly meetings.

2018-12-27, Leipzig, Germany. This isn’t a Perl event yet, but Daniel Böhmer proposes a Perl developer gathering at the 35th Chaos Communication Congress. See the proposal for ways to contact Daniel if you are interested in joining.
