The DC and Baltimore Perlmongers invite you to join us for a workshop in Silver Spring, MD, on Saturday April 11, followed by a hackathon on Sunday April 12! 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 through March 20th, and $50 afterwards. Free admission is available for students and the currently unemployed.

2015-04-18 Great Workshop! Thanks all! Brock Wilcox (‎awwaiid‎)

Thank you all for attending the 2015 DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop! We had a fairly major website outage starting the day before the workshop, but it didn't stop us from having a good time!

We hope to see you at YAPC::NA in Salt Lake City, and at other awesome Perl events in the near future. Follow us on The twitter (@dcbpw) to get workshop updates. And keep on Perlin'!

2015-04-08 Hotels Selling Out! Brock Wilcox (‎awwaiid‎)

Several hotels in the area are sold out, since our conference corresponds with peak cherry blossom tree bloom (and thus peak DC tourism)! But there are a bunch of hotels in walking distance, and even more that are metro accessible, so you should be able to find something.

If you have any trouble finding a hotel, please email us! -- we'll see what we can do.

2015-04-07 Schedule Posted Brock Wilcox (‎awwaiid‎)

We're all looking forward to this weekend!
