Fosdem Perl devroom schedule 2Feb2013 – complete

Hello all,

Fosdem.   We made it.  We’ve got 14 speakers with 14 talks, one for each speaker.  We even have 4 lightning talks.  The schedule is craamed with Perly goodness, even without a lunchbreaks and with short 5-minutes breaks.  We even have 3 speakers on standby who do not fit into the schedule, and 7 of the speakers proposed a second or sometimes a third talk, and they are on standby too.  We could have filled a second day with ease.

So, everybody is more than welcome in our very own devroom at the Fosdem in Brussels on Saturday, February 2nd.  Room AW1.126, starting at 11:00 to 19:00.  This night or tomorrow morning the schedule will be online:

At 11:00 we start with Curtis “Ovid” Poe, who will talk about Inheritance vs. Roles Other well-known names are Corion, Countzero, Maddingue, Carl Masak, ribasushi, Mark Overmeer, DuckDuckGo-Getty, inbetween some (relatively) unknown
outsiders and we end with Liz Mattijsen who will talk about Perl’s Diaspora.  End of course come lightning talks.

On Saturday and Sunday, 2nd and 3rd February, we will have a Perl-booth in Building K, level 2, stand number 3.  At the booth you will find the largest library of Perl-books, the big Perl camel, goodies, brochures, tuits, and who knows what more.  Guest of honor at the booth will be: Curtis “Ovid” Poe.  He will present (and sign!) his brand new book “Beginning Perl”, of which we will have a decent pile.

People who read this and who want to come over to Fosdem and who want to contribute something from their company, institutation, organisation, that has to do with Perl (or not), please please bring that with you.  Stickers, folders, brochutres, books, buttons, t-shirts, pens, dolls, stuffed animals, and more, all is welcome and will be used for Perl promotion.

Friday night is the famous Beer Event ( ) at Delirium.  We know that a group of at least 10 Perl Mongers will come, and some will try to come early and conquer our own corner.  Pay for your own drinks…

Saturday night we want to have dinner with a large group of people.  We don;t know yet where that will be, ask at the booth.  We think it is a nice accomplishment that we got a devroom filled within 4 days.  Even within the deadline, so we will be printed nicely with our schedule in the booklet that Fosdem prints.  And at first we did not even get a room, haha!!

Many thanks to all who have talked, thought, chatted, mailed with us, who proposed a talk, who helped spread the call for talks.  Excellent cooperation!

Hope to see you Friday, Saturday, Sunday, in Brussels, Belgium.

Kind regards,

Wendy van Dijk
