You are invited to attend the European Perl Hackathon in Arnhem, the Netherlands, from 2 - 4 March, 2007. Familiarity with the featured projects is not required; you need only bring a laptop and a willingness to join in.

Although there is no fee to attend the hackathon, you are required to pay for your own accommodation and transportation. However, it is possible to book a room at the venue location when you register for the hackathon, at the price of € 74 for two nights plus breakfast.

Space is limited to 30 participants, and registration is required. Reservations for accommodations made through the hackathon must be made by 9 February; reservations for the event itself must be made no later than 22 February.

    This is a reminder that the deadline for accommodations for the hackathon is fast approaching. If you want a room reservation, you must register for the hackathon and either pay online or contact Ann about paying later. The deadline is Friday, 9 February. For more information about the rooms, please refer to:

    If you prefer to make alternate arrangements for your accommodation, but wish to attend the hackathon, you still need to register before Thursday, 22 February. There is no cost for this registration. If you have special requests, such as vegetarian food, please contact Ann at the time of registration.

    To register, you first need to log in by either using an existing Act profile or creating a new user. Registration will be limited to the first 30 people.

    Since the initial announcement, two additional projects have joined the Parrot/Perl 6 track (hosted by Allison Randal and Jonathan Worthington):

    • Mark Overmeer will host a track on CPAN6.
    • Philippe Bruhat will coordinate Act development. This is an excellent opportunity to address any complaints you may have with the hackathon registration system ;)
