The DC and Baltimore Perlmongers invite you to join us for a workshop in Silver Spring, MD, on Saturday May 3, followed by a hackathon on Sunday May 4! The workshop will have two tracks of speakers, discussing innovative, exciting, and fun real-world usage of Perl. The hackathon will be more free-form project time, though we may have some organized hands-on activities for those interested.

Registration is $25 prior to April 1st, and $50 afterwards. Free admission is available for students and the currently unemployed.
