It seems we have been spoiled with the in-person conference. For all the Perl fans, we got two choices, The Perl and Raku Conference in Toronto and The Perl and Koha Conference in Helsinki. I would highly recommend the one convenient to you. We all need to come together and share the knowledge.
I am all set for the one in Toronto. Thanks to the organisers, I got the time slot to give a talk on The Weekly Challenge. Looking at the list of attendees and speakers, it is going to be fun 3 days event. Looking forward to meet fellow Team PWC members at the event.
Few weeks ago, I spoke about the ambitious project, The Perl Conference in India. Soon I realised, it isn't the right time to talk about. Although not my idea originally, I am taking a back seat for now. I hope to see it happening in my life time.
