Oslo Perl 6 Hackaton 2009: Revision 26
This year, "Oslo Perl Mongers"<http://oslo.pm.org/> will be hosting the *"Nordic Perl Workshop"<http://www.perlworkshop.no/npw2009/> 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"<http://enlightenedperl.org/>. 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"<http://www.redpill-llinpro.no/>'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 hackathon-like gig on thursday evening at NPW. The goal with this is to show new people what a hackathon is about and how easy it is to join in. PerlJam suggested making it into a "food for bugfixes" event, perhaps with old-timers helping the newbies with the bug fixing?
# 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.
This is a *preliminary* schedule...
