Patrick Michaud, lead developer of Rakudo Perl (the Perl 6 implementation using the "Parrot" virtual machine) has announced that "This release is named "Oslo" in honor of the organizers of the 2009 Nordic Perl Workshop"."
In the week after the NPW and the Perl 6/EPO Hackathon, on April 21-24th 2009, Gabor Szabo will be teaching his course on Test Automation. It is based on the 3-day course given in 2008 (right after the Perl QA Hackathon), but has since then been expanded to 4 days.
We're done! The feedback has been positive and we had a very nice party to finish it all off on friday night. Thanks for everything! :)
Abigail (Amsterdam.pm) talks about Inside Out Objects.
Everybody is invited to meet up on Wednesday before the conference.
We'll meet at the Dubliner Pub in Rådhusgata 28 from 18:00: Google Maps
Thanks to everyone who has submitted a talk before the deadline. We would still like to get more speakers, and have decided to extend the deadline by one week, until January 18. 2009, 23:59 CET.
Wondering what others would like to attend at NPW? Now you can find out for yourself on the Favorite Talks page!
The deadline for registering to NPW has been extended to April 6th, 2009. After this, we can't guarantee attendees any t-shirts. Register now!
We're still preparing NPW, even if it's been quiet for a while. Just to show that something's happening, we've updated the website design a little.
We're arranging a Perl 6 Hackathon in Oslo on April 18-20, 2009, right after the Workshop. As with the very successful Oslo QA Hackathon we arranged earlier this year, we'll be joining forces with Redpill-Linpro to give new and old Perl6 hackers in Oslo a nice opportunity to hack on Rakudo, Parrot or anything else relevant.
