Throughout our search we considered and visited venues in Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Florida, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Many people spent countless hours putting out feelers and soliciting bids. In particular, we would like to give a huge thanks to the Brew City Perl Mongers and the Detroit Perl Mongers: their efforts were invaluable in this process, and we hope that we can soon bring The Perl Conference to their fantastic cities.
It is with great enthusiasm that we happily announce The Perl Conference 2017 will be held Sunday, June 18th through Friday, June 23rd at the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia!
This places us immediately outside of Washington, DC, allowing for plenty of sightseeing opportunities!
The main event will run from Monday, June 19th through Wednesday, June 21st. Master Classes, training, and other activities will be held on the 18th, 22nd, and 23rd. We highly encourage you to attend all days, but especially look forward to seeing you at the main event.
This amazing and unique venue is afforded to us through the tireless efforts of the DC and Baltimore Perl Mongers. Many members of the excellent organizing committee for the annual DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop has joined The Perl Conference organizing committee to make this year’s Perl Conference one of the best.
We’ll be opening the new website, registration, call for talks, etc over the next few months. Please continue to watch your email for future updates.
