I seem to have forgotten to send the announcement to the OSDC mailing
lists. So here it comes.
As a large OSDC would have been too complex to organize till
February 2008, in the meantime I have decided to organize a
Perl only workshop in Dcember 2007.
Here is the announcement and the call for speakers:
I am happy to announce that we are going to have a
Perl Workshop in Israel still this year!
In order to give you the most time to prepare for it, it is scheduled
to be on 31st December, 2007.
It is going to be a one day workshop with either one or two rooms.
I am not sure yet.
We are going to have talks (if you submit them),
we plan to have job fair during the day
we'll allocate time for BOFs and project showcases
and I would be glad to receive ideas for other things to do.
The exact location is not final yet. We have reserved place in both
Ramat Efal and in Airport City but I'll consider other options as well
if someone helps me arrange the place.
The conference is managed using Act, the tool used
by the YAPCs and the various Perl Workshops throughout Europe
and the US.
You can already register on the web site:
Cost is not finalized yet, it will also depend on the sponsors we can attract.
Speakers can get in free of charge.
So go ahead, register on the web site or if you already have an account,
join this conference as well.
The dead-line for talk submission is 19th October but if enough good talks are
submitted earlier I will announce the talks earlier.
Remember, you only need to decide on the talk(s) and write an abstract
in order to submit the proposal.
You will need to write the talk only if is accepted.
Right after the Perl Workshop, we are going to have a Hackathon
between 1-5 January, 2008.
Details of the hackathon can be found on web site of the workshop on
If you would like to attend, please list yourself on the wiki page of
