This year, Oslo Perl Mongers will be hosting the Nordic Perl Workshop on April 16-17th 2009. The topics we'd like to focus on are Perl 6, Rakudo, Parrot, modern use of Perl 5 and some of the efforts from the Enlightend Perl organization. To make everything more interesting, we'd like to invite you to:
Oslo Perl 6+Enlightened Perl Hackathon 2009
Saturday 18th, Sunday 19th and Monday 20th of April
at Redpill-Linpro's training facilities in Oslo.
We had a very successful Hackathon there for the Perl-QA people last April, and would like to offer the same opportunity to the Perl 6 and Enlightened Perl people this time.
Details are sketchy still, but we know at least this:
- The Hackathon will happen. Redpill-Linpro are giving access to their nice offices and sponsoring us with food, drink, technical infrastructure and time from their employees.
- Nordic Perl Workshop is going to have a (two-day) track dedicated almost only to all things Perl 6, and another one with interesting topics about modern use of Perl 5. Our ambition is to use the conference as a recruiting ground for people who would like to learn about and hack on the projects related to the hackathon.
- If all goes well, we might even have a small pre-hackathon at NPW in order to show new people what a hackathon is about and how easy it is to join in.
- We have sponsorship (travel + hotel) for a couple of people already! More details later.
We're looking forward to the hackathon, but to make it a success WE NEED YOUR HELP. Update this page, tell us what you'd like to do, tell people about the hackathon.

I had to identify my browser as Firefox.
Will take a look at the page to try to understand why...
