So things are settled for 2010 Perl Oasis, I’m just waiting for instructions on what needs to be done to enable the website. The date is confirmed, January 16, 2010. The venue this year is the Four Points Sheraton Orlando, which is much closer to the action.
A note on the special rate for the hotel:
All reservations must be received on or before November 25, 2009. They will release all rooms after this date, rooms must be prepaid or they are lost. Hotel dates Jan 15-18 for the $75 rate, I think they will add a few days on either side. Hotel Reservations Department at 1-800-327-1366 between the hours of 9AM - 6PM (EST I assume), Monday through Friday only
So if you’re going to be staying at the venue you need to reserve quickly. There are however plenty of other options nearby too.
As soon as the website is up we’ll throw open a call for speakers, but we’ve had some speakers already agree to participate. Mark Keating from the Enlightened Perl Organisation will be giving the keynote. He has said he will be bringing along Matt Trout for moral support. From the other end of the world, Karen and Marty Pauly will be coming from Japan(!!) and I hope to arm twist one or both of them into speaking.
This is shaping up to be a gangbuster of a workshop, and I am wildly excited by everything that is going on.Written on November 2nd , 2009 by Chris Prather
