Birmingham Perl Mongers World Tour 2008
Posted by Barbie on 11th January 2008

Following our successful trips over the last 2 years, we're planning to do it all again. Birmingham Perl Mongers plan to venture around the British Isles, with hopefully one or two international destinations too. We have had interest from several UK Perl Monger groups and Linux User Groups, and have a few already lined up. This time around we are quite happy to come along to either a social or technical meeting, so please let us know if you would like us to visit you.

If you would like us to speak at a technical meeting or other event you are organising, please note time slots you would like us to fill. There are several members of who are willing to present, so we do have a range of subjects available.

Below is the current itinery, more dates will be added as soon as we know them ourselves. Once photos are available online, links will be updated so you can see all the gory details :)

In early 2006 Birmingham Perl Mongers took to the road to promote the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference, which we hosted at the end of August 2006. We took it upon ourselves to visit several Perl Monger groups around the UK, and proved extremely popular, with several groups asked to come back again, and others asking us to visit them too. In 2007 we visited both Perl Monger and Linux user groups, this time presenting at each groups technical meeting. For 2008 we hope to include several groups we never previous got to as well visiting some old friends.
