London Perl Workshop 2010

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to attend a lot of different events focused on quite a few different programming languages, but none of them match the sheer enthusiasm and love of the language that you get from London PM. While there is always a contingent of LPMers at Perl conferences held further abroad the London Perl Workshop is my yearly chance to see lots of old friends, what they’ve been up to and discuss what’s coming next in our field.

Other than the 3 1/2 hour tube problems getting to the venue (and having to leave the pub early) I had a great time, the organisation and volunteers were as always exceptional and it was a great idea to try and get some speakers from outside the community - and doubly so when you’re lucky enough to get the seriously clued PostgreSQL expert Simon Riggs.
