Event Wax Sign-up:
The North West England Perl Mongers will once again be holding a =
hackathon in the month of November (Saturday 20th) and we invite all and =
sundry (or all and sundried) to attend either in person or via virtual =
presence using the aether and our channel. The event will start at =
10.30-11.00 a.m. (GMT) in the physical location, but may start at any =
time in the aether.
The event will once agin be hosted in a physical location at the =
Shadowcat Systems offices in Lancaster (UK) and all who attend that =
event will have access to a range of free snacks, beer and pizza. If you =
can only attend in a virtual manner we invite you to our chat chnanel, =
northwestengland.pm, on irc.perl.org where you will be warmly greeted.
The main project for this year will be Oyster, an idea suggested by =
osfameron that won the attention at our Lightning Talks meeting in =
September. But, we will also be hacking on the next iteration of the =
ironman/ironboy codebase (which includes perlanet at its core), the =
presentingperl codebase to include enhancements and updates and =
suggesting a bug-triage competition for Perl 5 bugs that can be =
undertaken by individuals or Perl Monger groups.
If you are interested in attending in person, or wish to attend =
virtually then please use the Event Wax sign-up linked to at the top of =
this discourse. We hope that as many people as possible will join in on =
this day so that we can burn the code trails. Please contact Mark (mdk) =
or Ian (idn) for more information and I hope to talk to you in channel =
and see you, either physically or meta-physically on the day.
Please feel free to distribute this information to as wide an audience =
as possible. This can include, mailing lists, groups or other interested =
parties. Thanks for your help.
